TV Junkie: 'Curb' Finale Looms; Bon Jovi on Conan + Video
Weekend EditionWe're very much looking forward to Sunday's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" season finale. The "Seinfeld" reunion has been played perfectly - not overemphasized and very realistically positioned for the best comedic effect. A comedian on the circuit told me that "Curb" wasn't funny, and he's right that it's not funny in a stand-up comedy kind of way but it's sure as hell funny through the use of exploiting the most embarrassing and awkward situations you could ever put human beings into. It brings truth to the statement that comedy can be gleaned from observing someone else's tragedy. The close of this excellent seventh season is on Sunday at 9pm on HBO.
Ok ok, so Oprah is ending her show in 2011. Can we move that date up?
Bon Jovi performs on Conan tonight - we covered Jon Bon Jovi's acoustic performance at Lincoln Center earlier this week, check out the 45 minute of music in the video at the end of this post.
