“Curb Your Enthusiasm” Finale Jumps 56% in Total Viewers to Highest Night in Four Years


The end of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was a hit.

HBO says the total number of viewers including Max streaming and extra terrestrial fans came to 1.1 million. Maybe they’re right!

But the total linear viewers on the HBO channel with two showings on Sunday night came to 530,000. That’s a 56% jump from the previous week. The key demo rose a whopping 120%. That’s the best single night for this show since 2020.

I know a lot of young people have cut their cables and watch these shows with tin foil or something, but right now the only measured rating is linear. So anyway, the show was a success. It was certainly a critical success, definitely worthy of an Emmy award or two. It will have many nominations. Congrats!
