The third episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones netted an all-time high audience of 4.7 million viewers, which is up from the season premiere’s 4.4 million total.  A fourth season of the fantasy series has already been ordered, and it’s safe to say Game of Thrones won’t be going away for a very, very long time.  Check back every Monday morning for Jeff’s review of the prior night’s Game of Thrones.

The season two premiere of the HBO comedy series Veep scored 1.2 million viewers in the post-Game of Thrones slot.  That’s up 11% from the season one finale and marks the second most-watched episode in the show’s history.  Veep seems to be slowly building an audience, and was the sleeper hit of 2012.  If you aren’t watching it, now’s your chance to jump on the bandwagon.
