There is no need to curb your enthusiasm, because Larry David’s cringe comedy won’t be cancelled anytime too soon. HBO has renewed his Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show for a 10th season. There was a six year hiatus between the eighth and ninth seasons of the retro-scripted improv series, but that won’t be the case, this time. Production should kick off in the spring of 2018.
A semi-autobiographical HBO comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm stars co-creator Larry David as a fictionalized version of himself. The cast also includes Jeff Garlin as Jeff, Susie Essman as Susie, J.B. Smoove as Leon, and Cheryl Hines as Cheryl, along with Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson, and Mary Steenburgen.
Curb Your Enthusiasm: A Look at the Ratings
The ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm averaged a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.02 million viewers. Compared to season eight, way back in 2011, that’s down by 62% and down by 49%, respectively, but the TV landscape has completely changed. Out of the 22 HBO TV shows we’re tracking, Curb ranks 10th in terms of its demo ratings and ninth when sorted by total viewership.
