Larry David's seminal post-Seinfeldian semi-improvisational TV comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, begins a new life tonight on the TV Guide Channel (10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, 9 p.m. Central/Mountain).

Tonight's first panelists will be Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Hamm and Taraji P. Henson. Future post-show panels will include Seth Green, Rob Zombie, Hill Harper, Merrill Markoe, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Adam Corolla, Rex Lee, Dave Navarro, Patti Stanger, D.L.

That's what Borelli and Benjamin are doing, in a sense, with the Benefit for Stephen Baldwin* tonight at The Bell House. Benjamin and Borelli will host, with performances from, among others: Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, Kurt Braunohler, Jon Glaser, David Rees, surprise guests, a video from Gabe Delahaye and Max Silvestri, music from The Meetles, cake from Community Baking Co., and more.
