Episode 402 of 578 episodes

In this Pop Culture Happy Hour extra, Linda Holmes and Glen Weldon discuss the return of the HBO comedy The Comeback. They'll talk about how Lisa Kudrow's turn as Valerie Cherish isn't a depressing take on a middle-aged actress, why the show shares DNA with The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and why Paulie G is the worst villain on television.
