This is without a doubt the most exciting news I’ve heard in months … my beloved show The Comeback is returning to HBO as a limited series this fall with six new episodes featuring the one and only … Valerie Cherish (aka Lisa Kudrow)! HBO dropped the joyous news earlier today, I literally shrieked out loud, I can’t even believe The Comeback is really having its very own comeback with Michael Patrick King and Kudrow joining forces once again. Back in 2005 when HBO foolishly canceled the series after just thirteen (extremely delicious) episodes, I was beyond outraged. I did all I could to try and save the show (my efforts eventually culminated with actually meeting Lisa and talking to her all about The Comeback at a party), so now nine years later, I’m feeling vindicated, I knew we hadn’t seen the last of Valerie. Thankfully I managed to hold onto the URL ValerieCherish.com, which I will be putting to good use again, as we’re finally going to have our Valerie back!
