I spoke with the “Veep” star about the new season, her favorite “Veep” lines and getting a call from the real veep, but we also talked about Tumblr.
In some of the Season 2 episodes that were sent out to the press, both Tumblr and Reddit come up. I know “Veep” and Elaine Benes are both big on Tumblr. Do you ever poke around on that blogging platform?
You know, I don’t. I guess I should, but I probably would be frightened if I did. I don’t know, but I don’t do it a lot … should I? Or would it be a huge mistake? [Laughs.]
I think it’s fun. There are all these GIFs of great Selina insults and moments. Right after the trailer for Season 2 came out, there were a bunch from there.
No shit! I gotta go on that and check it out. We have this meeting with HBO, sort of a social media meeting, and we were talking about going to all these places and … I can’t get over what people are putting out there. It’s pretty cool. Some of it’s cool, I guess some of it’s scary, but some of it’s cool.

“Enlightenment,” premiering tonight, is the best show on HBO’s current schedule, says Hank Stuever: “A closely observed, wonderfully realized depiction of a very modern brand of narcissism…”
My kind of show.

“Derek Jeter 3K” Documentary Premieres Tonight at 9 p.m. on HBO
“It chronicles Jeter’s chase of 3,000 career hits and features new interviews with Reggie Jackson, Hal Steinbrenner, Joe Torre and Minka Kelly, among others. It also was the first time that Jeter wore a microphone during the game. Nice work by HBO and MLB Productions getting that to happen.” - Neil Best, Newsday
9 P.M. (HBO) THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH AUNT DIANE
Two years ago, in one of the worst car accidents in New York State history, Diane Schuler drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway for almost two miles. She eventually collided with a sport-utility vehicle, killing eight people, including herself. In the vehicle with her were her daughter and three nieces. She was condemned as a drunk and a careless mother, but this documentary explains why there’s perhaps more to the story. - NYTimes
