TV Junkie: 'Curb' on TV Guide Starts Tonight; Christian Extremists Target Comedy Central
Guitarist Dave Navarro argues/discusses an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with series star Susie Essman on an episode of "Curb: The Discussion" which begins airing tonight at 10pm on the TV Guide network.
Christian extremists have united to combat rumored Comedy Central animated Jesus project. About 6 weeks ago American Muslim extremists targeted Comedy Central's "South Park" creators for death after their portrayal of Muhammad in an episode and now their Christian counterparts are gathering forces to combat just the very idea of a Jesus project that may or may not even exist. We await Michael Medved's imminent fatwah on the subject.
Tonight the TV Guide network begins broadcasting episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" followed by "Curb: The Discussion" and it's pretty darn good. Not only have they somehow managed to edit the show to retain its full offensiveness but the panels in the discussion segments have everyone from Jerry Seinfeld to Joe Scarborough, from Taraji P. Henson to Mayim Bialik. TV Guide will broadcast 2 sets of episodes starting at 10pm every Wednesday.
