As a die-hard fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm, I'm thrilled that TV Guide Network has the opportunity to air it for our viewers. There was always, of course, the concern that some of the series' more R-rated material would have to be edited for basic cable. As any Curb buff knows, the show is like a fine garment—you can't just cut into it. If we were going to show Curb Your Enthusiasm, we wanted to do everything in our power to preserve its integrity. Larry David liked the sound of this.
Syndicated series that run over 20 minutes are often chopped down to fit the traditional half-hour format, but we wanted to air Curb in its entirety.

But if you think the similarities between the two shows begin and end with Larry David, think again. In anticipation of Curb's TV Guide Network debut, we look at just a few of the connections between the two shows...
Cheryl Hines has an awesome responsibility on Curb Your Enthusiasm: She not only has to bring to life her character, Cheryl David, but also to represent all the women in the world who say they, too, are married to a man like Larry David.
