by Courtney Henley - Jul 31, 2015

I'm gonna make this nice and simple: if you're not watching the HBO comedy series THE COMEBACK, you should be.

It's genuinely hilarious and full of heart – and boasts an extensive list of guest stars, to boot (I'm looking at you, Sean Hayes and Seth Rogen). If you don't believe me, maybe you'll listen to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which just recognized the series with an Emmy nomination for Lisa Kudrow for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.  (more...)
