Ratings: “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Having Difficult Final Run, Ties Season Low


HBO is having trouble with the final season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Sunday night’s episode dropped 31.1% from the prior week. The episode tied the season low — the second episode — with just 257,000 viewers.

That’s down from 373,000 the week before — that was right after actor Richard Lewis died. The audience interest was up. This week also suffered from being up against the Oscars. They would certainly overlap in audience.

This week, Lori Loughlin was the guest star. But “Curb” does no previews, so no one knew the actress who went to jail in the college scandal was going to be on screen.

There are just four more episodes til the end. After that, HBO will depend on the return of “Hacks” in their comedy lineup to get some ratings. Let’s hope it’s as good as its own previous seasons!
