• Some interesting notes from the Sunday cable ratings, per our pals at TVBTN: History’s The Bible (ticking up to 10.87 million total viewers and a 2.8 rating) just barely outdrew The Walking Dead (dipping slightly to 10.84 mil/5.5); History’s Vikings (4.8 mil/1.5) also was up week-to-week. Lifetime’s Client List (2.1 mil/1.0) ticked up, while Army Wives (2.3 mil/0.7) dipped.

• Christopher Guest fans, rejoice! HBO has unveiled a first look at the prolific producer/director/writer/etc.’s new comedy series Family Tree, which premieres this spring.

  • SO excited for Family Tree! His mockumentaries are some of my favorite movies and I LOVE ROY from IT Crowd. Looking forward to it!

  • “Face Off” renewal confirmation is nice, but isn’t really news – there wouldn’t be a point of the “FO Redemption” webseries if there wasn’t going to be a ‘next season’ for the winner to compete in……

    • Nope…

      CAN’T WAIT FOR VEEP. Forget Girls, Veep is the best comedy on HBO right now. More love for cast is definitely needed *nodding*
