Nine years after being cancelled following only one season, Valerie Cherish is back in HBO's The Comeback. The series picks up after Valerie's misfortunes in season one, where she learns that her former boss, Paulie G., has created a new scathing series about her, titled Seeing Red. As luck would have it, the desperate actress accepts the lead role, playing a humiliated version of herself in order to be thrust back into the spotlight.


Entertainment Weekly has named The Comeback one of the ten best shows of the past decade. And they are spot on! This is one of my all-time favourite programs. Packed with hilarious one-liners and a brilliant ensemble cast, this is one television event not to miss this fall. Or as Valerie would say you "need to SEE that!"

Season Two's first episode is now streaming on YouTube, courtesy of HBO:
