Don't Curb Your Enthusiasm for Our Round-Up of TV's Lovably Despicable Characters
After a year-and-a-half hiatus, HBO’s minutiae-examining Curb Your Enthusiasm returns this Sunday at 10/9c with its eighth season. Now, as much as we love both the real and heightened versions of Larry David — and even his onscreen cohort, played by Jeff Garlin — fact is, these two partake in some pretty despicable behavior.
