"Meet The Blacks," A "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Airs
Meet the Blacks is the premiere episode of the 6th season of the cable comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm.
It originally aired on HBO on September 9, 2007.
The episode opens with Larry and Cheryl's sleep getting disrupted by the nagging blare of a smoke detector's "low battery" alarm in the middle of the night. They decide to split up and search the house in order to silence it. Larry follows the ringing and finds that it is the kitchen alarm. Unable to silence or deprogram the detector in any way, Larry retrieves a baseball bat and smashes it to pieces. He and Cheryl head back to sleep.
Curb Your Enthusiasm is an Emmy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning American comedy series starring Seinfeld writer, co-creator, and executive producer Larry David as himself, and produced and broadcast by HBO. The series was inspired by a 1999 one-hour mockumentary titled Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm, which David and HBO originally envisioned as a one-time project. Six seasons of the series have been produced and aired on HBO between 2000 and 2007. A seventh season began production in December 2008. As of late 2008, HBO has been promoting the upcoming season for Fall 2009.
