Sunday was a night of new highs and a season return on HBO. In the third week of its third season, HBO’s flagship series Game Of Thrones hit a viewership record with 4.7 million. The series’ previous high was the 4.4 million who tuned in for the season premiere March 31. Meanwhile, Veep was back at 10 PM for its second season with 1.2 million viewers. The political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus was down from the 1.4 million who watched the Season 1 premiere on April 22, 2012 but the second-best result Veep has had, following its Season 1 debut. Sunday’s show was also up 11% from Season 1 finale June 10. Over two plays, Veep garnered 1.5 million viewers. Veep stars Louis-Dreyfus as the vain and hapless Vice President Selina Meyer. Last year, HBO renewed it for a second season after two airings. Louis-Dreyfus picked up an Emmy last year. For the 10-episode Season 2, the series has added Gary Cole as Meyer’s former campaign strategist and Kevin Dunn as White House Chief of Staff.
