TVLine Items: Silicon Valley Teaser, Taylor Swift Opens Grammys and More

The first teaser for Silicon Valley‘s third season begins with Richard Hendricks looking confident and authoritative, but somehow ends with him trying to stop the flow of a self-induced bloody nose.

So, y’know, business as usual.

The video above gives a sneak peek at what lies ahead for Richard, after he was pushed out as Pied Piper CEO at the end of Season 2. Silicon Valley returns on Sunday, April 24, at 10/9c on HBO; press PLAY above to see the teaser.

    Flaked might actually be good?

      I know right! I can’t wait to check it out! Oh yeah and I REALLY can’t wait for Silicon Valley’s season premiere. Man! Every year that show gets funnier and funnier!

    This is given more preference in Gulf areas due to
    high moisture content in the surrounding. Essentially, it’s important to keep the saw
    table surface clean, but also to keep it slip free for the security of your materials and fingers.
    If you already know the condition of your brushes, you either know the brushes
    are bad, or that the problem lies somewhere else.

    Good news Kevin Smith will have a talk show. Can’t wait to see it! The trailer for Flaked looks really good.

    Best I can determine, Flaked will only have 8 episodes.
