HBO announced today that they've renewed the critically-acclaimed, Emmy-winning comedy Veep for a third season. Created by UK comedy mastermind Armando Iannucci and starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the U.S. Vice President, the series began airing its second season last month and earned its highest ratings for the season yet this past weekend. Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reed Scott, Timothy Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, and Kevin Dunn. Like the second season, the third season order is for 10 episodes. The new season is expected to debut sometime next year, so once Veep Season 2 wraps, you'll just have to start paying attention to Joe Biden for a few months [...]

The new season will be 10 episodes compared to last season's eight, continuing HBO's quest to transition creator Armando Iannucci away from tiny six-episode British seasons, inch by inch.
If you haven't noticed, this isn't the end of 2012 (and according to my Mayan friend, Maya, the end of the universe). We are drawing a distinction between a Season In Review and a Year In Review, as to celebrate the traditional television season. But in doing so, I realized the idea of the television season itself doesn’t seem to loom as large as it once did.

If anything, the summer is a more exciting time for television as for [...]
