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).
Each episode will be followed a post-show celebrity panel to fill out the hour, hosted by Curb's Susie Essman, called Curb: The Discussion. 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. Hughley, Jeff Ross, Patton Oswalt, Joe Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski, Gloria Allred, Randy Cohen, Dr. Stan Katz, and others.
So, to be clear, celebrities will be analyzing the diabolical domestic life of Larry David's alter-ego and those of his friends, mostly for laughs?
That sounds exactly like what Seinfeld and his celebrity friends have been doing on The Marriage Ref?
I just want to make sure you comedy fans know this before you pass judgment on one or the other.

Not a fair comparison. “The Marriage Ref” is a standalone piece meant to entertain a mass audience while “Curb: The Discussion” is a companion piece meant to appeal to fans of “Curb.” For the record, I don’t/won’t watch either, but that doesn’t change the fact that “Curb” is great.
I wonder if you have to be jewish to think these shows are funny.
What channel is tv guide channel if you have cablevision
