The debut of HBO’s latest comedy series, the Julia Louis-Dreyfus starrer Veep, drew 1.4 million viewers at 10 PM Sunday. That was up 8% from the season premiere in the slot of Eastbound & Down, which followed the modestly rated Luck vs. Game Of Thrones for Veep. Compared with the series finale of Eastbound a week ago, Veep was up 28%. For the night, including a 12 AM airing, Veep averaged 1.7 million viewers. In its second airing, fellow new HBO comedy Girls (858,000) held steady, down 2% from its premiere despite a stronger lead-in. For the night, Lena Dunham’s series posted 1.1 million viewers. (Its gross audience for the premiere episode has crossed 3.2 million, HBO says.) Kicking things off at 9 PM was Game Of Thrones, which drew 3.7 million viewers, down a fraction from the previous week (3.8 million). Its nightly average was 4.6 million.
