For anyone doing without premium cable, last night's premiere of "Veep" -- the new show from "In The Loop" director Armando Iannucci starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a hapless vice president fighting to stay politically relevant -- the first episode is now online, for free (HBO did the same thing for "Girls" last week).

It's not embeddable, but the "Veep" pilot is now up on YouTube, as well as on HBO.com and DailyMotion.com and will be available on those platforms until May 21st.

Check out our interview with "Veep" creator Iannucci.
