HBO, Showing Me The Love

HBO is rapidly working on bumping off NBC as my favorite network publicity department, sending me a whole bunch of goodies today, including two episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm." I plan on going through this as quickly as possible so I can give you an update by the end of the week.

That's about it for today; Mondays are extremely busy since I am the temporary cops reporter for The Telegraph.

MONDAY'S BEST BET: If you don't know what is new on Mondays, then you pretty much aren't watching those shows anyway, so you don't really need my updates.

I will say, though, that after a rare misstep last week, "My Boys" (TBS, 10 p.m.) comes roaring back with one of its cleverest episodes ever. "My Boys" has often been called a "Sex & The City" for men, and tonight's episode takes that to heart. Also, the subplot involving Brendan's increasing egotism and how the gang resolves it is extremely well-done.

Hey, if HBO had given you the final couple of "Sopranos" in advance, that would have been cool, then you could have warned us about that fade to black cheeseball ending. Still, glad you're getting to enjoy the first 2 "Curb" ahead of the rest of us.

Oh, and glad it only took Larry David 21 months to come back on air. I guess you can't rush genius.

Yeah, "My Boys" wasn't as great last week and I don't think my opinion has changed on 1 subject: they need to lose her girly-girl friend. She's not funny, just annoying and bratty. The episode last night with the "Sex & the City" bits were hilarious. The most dead on were the Samantha and Charlotte knock offs.

Oh, and I am glad they finally got Brendan to stop being a jerk. The intervention was funny but I didn't want to have to go another week of Brendan acting like that.
