Curb Your Enthusiasm

9pm, Sky Comedy

Has Larry David officially retired his character “Larry David”? The semi-autobiographical and mostly improvised TV show, centered around grumpiness, nitpicking, and perceived offenses in everyday situations, has been running since 2000. This current season, the twelfth, has been promoted as the final one. If this truly marks the conclusion, Larry remains as fiercely irritable as ever: explosively losing his temper at Siri; effortlessly causing tension with a hotel housekeeper; and making the unwise commitment to be “amicable” during a paid fan event in Atlanta.
