New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff tweeted out some good news for fans of HBO's Sunday night comedy lineup: HBO has reportedly renewed Veep, for a fourth season, and freshman sitcom Silicon Valley for a second season. 

When Twitter user @snakeyes12 asked why the shows have already gotten renewed after three episodes and very OK ratings, Itzkoff opined that, well, buzz trumps all at HBO.

You gotta remember that this isn't TV. It's HBO.
