Will & Grace and Curb Your Enthusiasm: Two legendary comedies are back, but only one is really surprising

  • NBC revival of Will & Grace has been surprisingly terrific, exceeding all expectations, says Kevin Fallon. Larry David’s HBO comedy, meanwhile, feels like its just spinning its wheels this season. “It’s not that the new Curb is a disaster or the new Will & Grace is brilliant,” says Fallon. “But the latter aggressively tackled a problem that everyone always knew it had, while a latent issue with Curb is only now being exposed because of its timing. Both shows are making us laugh. But only one is really surprising us. With the endless stream of revivals making us glassy-eyed as they pop up one after another, maybe that’s the true measure of success.”
