HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returns for its eighth season at 10 tonight.

And, yes, that's a lot of seasons for a show whose creator and star, Larry David, never seems certain if we'll ever see any more.

David -- who also co-created "Seinfeld" -- doesn't really have to play by anyone else's rules, which may be why I can't really tell you much about tonight's episode, beyond the fact it's titled "Divorce," and that it includes David's longtime co-star Cheryl Hines (and I only know that part because the picture at left is  taken from tonight's episode, according to HBO).

The network sent critics three new "Curb" episodes a few weeks ago -- I'm told they were the ones David wanted sent out -- and while they're not exactly consecutive (they're marked for July 24, Aug. 7 and Sept. 4), they are very "Curb."

And very Larry David.

In the meantime, I'm as curious as anyone to see what happens tonight.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
