HBO Announces Premiere Dates For Curb, True Blood, And Entourage
While network television will be all over re-runs and tentative pick-up shows, HBO will be tossing out some of its tried and true formats. Set for summer release are Curb Your Enthusiasm, True Blood, and Entourage. Entourage’s eighth season release will be especially bittersweet—after a short eight-episode run, the station favorite will officially finish its run.
HBO’s summer programming will kick-off on Sunday, June 26, with the release of season 4 of True Blood at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series, created by Alan Ball, will run for 12 episode. Two weeks later, the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will air on July 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Because of its short season, Entourage will be the last to air on July 24 at 10:30 p.m ET/PT.
All that remains to be seen is whether the Entourage, the Mark Wahlberg-produced catchphrase generator, will go out with a bang or a whimper. I would put money on the former. The plus side of only running eight episodes is even the longtime fans who gave up at some point will likely turn out to send Vinnie Chase and the boys out in style. Whether they’ve earned it is another matter entirely.
