Guess all that discussion about race and privilege paid off! HBO just announced that it's renewed Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow's "Girls" for a second ten-episode season.

Also coming back for more -- Armando Iannucci's political satire "Veep," starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as an earnest but not terribly successful vice president.

According to HBO, "Girls" has so far rung up a gross audience of 3.8 million viewers to date, and "Veep" has managed 3.7 million viewers. Those aren't "Game of Thrones" numbers, but they're good enough for series that are fairly specialized and, in the cast of "Girls," without established stars. "Girls" feels more stable than "Veep," which is still getting its stride, but both are the type of series that will grow more secure in their voices as they have time.
