HBO Is Cautiously Optimistic About A Season 9 For Curb

| Filed under: TV NewsEtc.

9th Season Of Curb Possible

Trying their hardest not the jinx it, the folks over at HBO have been wondering why the season 8 of Curb Your Enthusiasm is doing so well now.

It isn't that they don't have faith in their show, but it's getting the highest numbers since season 4, and there was a long hiatus between seasons 7 and 8.

They're looking into the lead-ins, and quality of the season. Even the hiatus. Maybe it was just a perfect storm for Larry.

Which makes them "cautiously" optimistic about a 9th season, because Larry hasn't said yet that he never wants to do it again. But, that doesn't mean he does. And it's completely up to him:

"We're cautiously optimistic," HBO's president of programming Michael Lombardo told me today of the prospects of a ninth season of Curb. There has been an encouraging sign. "For the first time ever after this season Larry didn't say 'I never want to do this again'," Lombardo said. That is a promising start.

We assume we speak for others when we say that we'd LOVE to see a 9th season!

There's just something so hilarious about watching Larry David get into excruciatingly hard to watch situations.

Say yes, Larry!

    I liked it better when he was married
    I do not want scenes where Larry is having sex with other women

    HBO, hire me because I can explain it. The increase in viewership is because Curb is now in syndication which has broadened its audience. Simple.

    Syndication is one reason, but I got another. SEINFELD. Last season was all about the reunion. There are a lot of people out there who loved Seinfeld, but never watched Curb. They got clued in last season, or rented the DVDs since then, and now are tuning in. So add that along to the syndication reason and the fact the show is FUNNY and well written, and there you have it.

    you are right
    I've been watching Curb all along but friends of mine tuned in only to see Seinfeld and now they are hooked too!
