Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

Classic satire about late-night TV host Larry Sanders, a neurotic (when he's not being self-obsessive) performer. The show boasted celebrity guests unafraid of poking fun at themselves; hilarious behind-the-scenes bits skewering the bloated egos (and insecurities) of the rich and famous; and delicious love-hate business involving Larry, producer Artie and sidekick Hank (`Hey now!'). Its memorable finale featured Jerry Seinfeld, Sean Penn, Carol Burnett, Warren Beatty and David Duchovny.
Creator: Garry Shandling
