HBO, once considered a bastion of televised drama, has recently been flexing some comedic muscle as many of its dramatic series near the end of their runs. So it should come as no surprise that when Silicon Valley came along to fill the Hello Ladies-shaped hole in our hearts, HBO was looking for something built to last.
And after positive reviews and good word of mouth, Silicon Valley is coming back after its third episode aired last night. Additionally, we get more Veep, which means we can all kick back with a glass of wine and watch politicos berate Jonah in thousands of different ways.
All in all, a great day for fans of comedy and HBO, but a bad day for Jonah.
