Both shows have performed solidly in the ratings in their first couple of weeks on the air this spring. “Silicon Valley” debuted to 2 million viewers — the best premiere for an HBO comedy in almost five years — and followed up with 1.7 million viewers for its second episode. Season 3 of “Veep” has dipped slightly compared to last year but is bringing in about 1 million viewers. (All figures are overnight ratings and don’t include repeat airings, DVR or streaming views.)
