Did you watch the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" premiere last night? Tell us what you thought. We've seen 3 random episodes from the series and they're all great but we have no idea of the timeline involved, all we know is that Larry David and company go to New York. We did enjoy the cameo by Paul F. Thomkins as Larry's lawyer and we're hopeful of many more great cameos this season - we know Ricky Gervais will appear later in the season and how can Jerry Seinfeld not appear in at least one of the New York episodes? Please check out our video interviews with Larry David, Cheryl Hines, and Susie Essman in yesterday's post.
Tonight we've got Brokeback Mountain Part II as Jake Gyllenhaal joins Bear Grylls for some hijinks on "Man vs Wild" on Discovery (see the promo above). Also check out Syfy as they premiere new seasons of "Eureka" and "Warehouse 13" tonight as well as the new series "Alphas."
"True Blood" fans should check out The Hollywood Reporter's TV page which has a lot of Comic Con coverage including interviews with almost every actor on the show. Last night's episode was fun, huh? We finally saw the episode where Sookie says the line we've been teased with for 8 months: "Now I gotta deal with witches?" We're looking froward to next week's since we have seen any of the remaining episodes this season.
