When Phil gets a chance to write his own series for the network, he doesn't hesitate to quit the Larry Sanders Show. And though Phil claims his doctor insisted he take some time off for health reasons, both Arthur and Larry know he's lying. Meanwhile, when Larry buys Arthur an expensive pen, Hank wonders what Larry is going to get him. When Arthur loses his pen, he's forced to cover with Larry as he searches for it. Priming Larry for a gift of his own, Hank is delighted when Arthur tells him that all he got was a cheap travel alarm clock. However, Hank is unaware that the pen he found on the men's room floor was the expensive model Arthur bought for their boss. Meanwhile, during a meeting with a pair of young network executives, it isn't long before Phil's script has been completely revised to suit actor Dave Chappelle. As Arthur enlists Beverly in an effort to replace the pen, Hank unwittingly turns it over to Sid. After Beverly spends $10,000 on one she suspects is just like the one he lost, Arthur feels responsible for buying a gift of equal value and sends her to get an original piece of artwork he knows Larry likes. But only after Beverly spends $19,000 on the wrong picture does Arthur learn that the pen Larry bought cost only $500. Finally, after Phil's project is killed, he returns to his old job, but not before Arthur and Larry press him to tell the truth about why he left in the first place. watch

Is Dave Chappelle Eyeing a Return to Television?

A report that Dave Chappelle might be heading back to the small screen is "absolutely untrue," Carla Simms, Chappelle's rep, tells Entertainment Weekly.

The online paper The Daily reported earlier Thursday that he planned a new show aimed for a paid subscription service like Netflix, Crackle or Hulu. But Entertainment Weekly also quotes sources close to the comedian as saying he would likely go on a bigger platform than a niche subscription service if he did return to television.

8 Great TV Quitters

It's been a great week for quitters. Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater went out big by quitting over his plane's intercom, grabbing some beers, and sliding down the emergency chute. Then a young woman's quitting via dry erase board made the online rounds, though she turned out to be an actress named Elyse Porterfield (whose name also sounds too good to be true). In honor of these disgruntled employees, real and fake, we salute eight of TV's greatest quitters — real, fake, and both.

8. Amanda Bynes: The All That and Amanda Show star announced in June that she was retiring from acting at the age of 24. A month later she changed her mind and announced her... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Reggie Watts Up!

Cheers to Reggie Watts for lighting up the small screen.

The incandescent comic/musician — who's like the love child of Zach Galifianakis and Jack Black, plus a giant Afro — tore down houses as the opening act for Conan O'Brien's just-concluded "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour." He made his network debut on O'Brien successor Jimmy Fallon's Late Night and performed one of his breakout tunes, "Big-Ass Purse," in TBS' recent special Team Coco Presents: Conan's Writers.
