Larry David Tries to Explain Tampons to a Girl Scout on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 11th 2011 5:59AM
'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'The Divorce'If you're sitting there with an uncomfortable feeling sitting in the pit of your stomach, then you know Larry David is back. In the Season 8 premiere of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO), David found himself in one of the most awkward positions any man could be in.

A girl scout arrived selling cookies, and then realized she had just started her first-ever period. This isn't Larry's daughter. He has no woman in the house anymore. To his credit, Larry tried to do the right thing, and he did have tampons on hand at least.

We can't imagine a more traumatic first time for any young girl than having Larry David outside the bathroom door trying to explain to you how to use a tampon. As we usually see on 'Curb,' Larry's good intentions spiraled out of control and left him in his usual quagmire of self-induced misery.

Larry David marks his territory in a photo with Regis Philbin and his wife on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Wednesday, Regis Philbin fulfilled a long-held dream when Larry David appeared on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated). Regis was still gushing about the experience Thursday, so much so that Kelly Ripa called him out on his man-crush.

"I admire his writing ability and his comedic ability," said Philbin. "No," Ripa admonished. "You're in love with him." Philbin said David was great and that maybe he had a little crush, but Ripa wouldn't budge, saying, "No, you're crushing on him. You have a crush." Philbin explained that these things sometimes happen to men.

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Season 8: 10 Things You Need to Know

by Kim Potts, posted Jul 6th 2011 4:00PM
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Hello, Larry! We've missed the antics of Larry David and his 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' pals, but our lives will be Larry-less no more, as the eighth season of 'Curb' kicks off this weekend (Sun., July 10, 10PM ET on HBO).

We hosted the official first look at the new season in May, with glimpses of guest stars like Michael J. Fox, 'Mad Men' star Rich Sommer and Paul F. Tompkins among the familiar funny faces.

And even more big names have been announced since then, including Ricky Gervais, Rosie O'Donnell, Michael McKean and the return of Cheryl's BFF Wanda Sykes.

But none of this news, or the promise of Larry terrorizing NYC for at least half the season, has curbed anything -- we just want more information!

Here, 10 things to get you in the mood for what just might be the show's best season yet.

Larry David Breaks Regis's Heart, But Finally Appears on His Show (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 6th 2011 2:15PM
Regis Philbin kisses Larry David on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Regis Philbin has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get Larry David to appear on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) for years. He finally got his wish today, but Regis, always one to take things personally, insisted on airing his grievances with David anyway. Regis played a montage of himself pleading with David to appear on the show, and also recounted a joke Larry played on him, when he showed up at Regis's building and asked the doorman to tell him that he'd been there, but that he didn't ask for Regis.

"Now that's cruel torture," Regis said to David. He grabbed David's arm dramatically. "'Tell him I didn't ask for him,' that's the line that killed me," he said.

"Can't you take a joke?" said David. "It was a joke." It was a playful, awkward exchange, and all was forgiven when Philbin pulled David close and planted a big kiss on his bald noggin, the type of happy ending you're not likely to see on the new season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' which premieres Sunday night on HBO.

TV 101: Curing the Summertime TV Blues

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted May 25th 2011 4:00PM
WipeoutTelevision is a funny thing. When you've been watching it all your life, it not only takes on a habitual role, it can also become extremely personal. Everyone has "their shows" -- the shows they watch religiously, the shows for which DVR isn't an option, the shows they try to talk their significant others into liking, the shows that force them to ream out a blogger for merely suggesting that "maybe the show is slipping," ignoring the fact that the blogger really likes the show too, and if they could just meet face to face they would see that there's no need to call him that.

Taking that into account, it can be depressing, quite frankly, when the summer months arrive and all those shows we've been manipulating our schedules around are gone. But it doesn't necessarily have to be. The summer is an opportunity to leave that televisual comfort zone that we've spent so many years cultivating and seek new shows to add to our socially acceptable obsession. Here's a shortlist of shows premiering this summer that should be a cure for the "where's my show" blues.

by Maggie Furlong, posted May 22nd 2011 8:00PM
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Forget what Larry David tells you to do and get excited people -- Season 8 of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' looks amazing.

Larry's back for more politically and socially incorrect behavior, and he's got some big guest stars coming to play. In this exclusive preview, we spot Michael J. Fox, 'Mad Men' star Rich Sommer and Paul F. Tompkins among the familiar funny faces.

There's also his old pal Jeff (Jeff Garlin) and his wife Susie (Susie Essman), Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein) and Leon (J.B. Smoove).

Who don't we see? Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), for one. Of course last season ended with the two of them reuniting ... and then Cheryl instantly remembering why she left him in the first place. (Damn you Julia Louis-Dreyfus and your water-ringed furniture!)

Michael J. Fox and Michael Gross to Guest Star on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

Michael J. Fox and Larry David, in 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Get ready for Keaton time on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' It's been announced that both Michael J. Fox and his 'Family Ties' onscreen father Michael Gross will be guest-starring on the upcoming Season 8.

According to TVGuide.com, Fox will play himself in Episode 10, in which 'Curb' uses Fox's real-life battle with Parkinson's Disease as a comedic plot device. "Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours," says Fox.

The famously irascible Larry then believes that Fox is "being symptomatic just to annoy him -- a whole passive-aggressive thing. He's complaining because I'm shuffling and making noise upstairs. It's very funny."

Cheryl Hines Talks About Her All-Girl, Semi-Nude Vacation (VIDEO)

Cheryl Hines Talks About Her All-Girl, Semi-Nude VacationActress Cheryl Hines has been starring on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' for eleven seasons now. So it stands to reason that she could use a little time off. On 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), she discussed a highly sexy all-girl trip to Mexico, much to Craig Ferguson's consternation.

Cheryl went to the beach, accompanied by a group of female friends. Here's a quick list of what their trip involved:

1) Tequila shots.
2) Semi-naked 'Slip 'n Slide.'
3) Skinny-dipping.
4) Eating at a restaurant with two naked girls, whose breasts were only covered with "corn tortillas." (A nice touch, in that it's kind of a nod to Mexican cuisine.)

Emmy Picks: Best Comedy Series

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 26th 2010 2:02PM
The nominees for Best Comedy at the 2010 Emmys
With the Emmy awards just days away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

Earlier today, I discussed the Best Drama Series category. We'll close out the picks with a look at the Best Comedy category.

Nominees:
'30 Rock'
'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
'Glee'
'Modern Family'
'Nurse Jackie'
'The Office'

Who will win: This is where the Academy will pay tribute to the 'Glee' mania that gripped the country in 2009-10. It's hard to say whether the show actually deserves the award, since it was so maddeningly inconsistent in it's inaugural season. But when the show was at its best, it gave audiences rousing moments of comedy and drama, and of song and dance, that sparked a new interest in school music programs and put musical theatre in a spotlight it hasn't been in for at least three decades. For its cultural impact alone, it'll likely get the award.

Emmy Picks: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 25th 2010 12:05PM

With the Emmy awards just days away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

Yesterday, I discussed the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy category. Today we look at some funny guys in the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy category.

Nominees:
Alec Baldwin, '30 Rock'
Steve Carell, 'The Office'
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
Matthew Morrison, 'Glee'
Jim Parsons, 'The Big Bang Theory'
Tony Shalhoub, 'Monk'

Who will win:
There are three two previous winners in this category (four, if you count David's Comedy Series win for 'Seinfeld,') so there are lots of places the Academy can go if they want to play it safe. I can see them giving it to Alec Baldwin again, even though '30 Rock' didn't have the strongest season, though Shalhoub might get the votes as a tribute to the end of 'Monk''s long run. But the Academy loves the fact that they can give a comedy award to a guy who is still thought of in some circles as a dramatic actor. So Baldwin will take it.
