Little-watched, but well worth the time, HBO gave a surprise pick-up to freshman comedy "Getting On." The dark comedy aired its six-episode season on Sundays from Thanksgiving to New Year's and hardly made a blip in the media, despite a stellar cast. Headlined by Laurie Metcalf, Niecy Nash, Alex Borstein, and Mel Rodriguez, the series follows the day-to-day lives of the staff at a geriatric ward.

Season 1 also featured some notable guest stars, including Harry Dean Stanton, June Squibb, Molly Shannon, Daniel Stern, and Telma Hopkins. Despite virtually no marketing push, "Getting On" is the only new comedy from 2013 on HBO to get a second-season renewal. "Hello Ladies" and "Family Tree" have already been cancelled.

The second season of "Getting On" will again run only six episodes. The new season is scheduled to premiere later in 2014 on HBO.

TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.
