'Curb' pits Larry David against... Michael J. Fox?

It's been quite a season for Larry David: getting divorced (and I gotta admit, I really miss Cheryl Hines); relocating to New York; getting into multiple fights with – and then saving the life of – Ricky Gervais; and infuriating Susie on a regular basis (some things never change).

Monday night's season finale saw him shushing his upstairs neighbor, Michael J. Fox, in a restaurant, after which he mistook (or did he?) a Parkinson's shake for Michael looking upset about being shushed.

Next thing you know, Larry was getting shaken up bottles of cola from Michael, and hearing stomping upstairs. Larry believed that Michael was messing with him, but Michael insisted it was Parkinson's.

Ryan Gosling: Fans wish I was Ryan Reynolds

Hard as it may be to believe, Ryan Gosling says fans approaching him are usually after another famous Ryan.

“I do get a lot of disappointed, 'You're not Ryan Reynolds’ [reactions]," the actor tells CNN.

Of course, the star of the ultimate chick flick (“The Notebook”) gets plenty of female attention on the streets, but Gosling swears it’s not meant for him.

'Boardwalk Empire' wins 7 at Creative Arts Emmys

The Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 18, but for now we're focusing on the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys, which were handed out over the weekend in L.A.

HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" walked away from the ceremony with seven awards, including Emmys for outstanding casting, outstanding makeup for a single camera series (non prosthetic) and outstanding art direction for a single camera series.  (HBO is owned by CNN's parent company.)

Gwyneth Paltrow's frequent stops by "Glee" weren't in vain, either: The "Contagion" actress picked up an outstanding guest actress in a comedy series Emmy for her portrayal of substitute teacher Holly Holliday. "Glee" also won the award for outstanding casting for a comedy series.

'Breaking Bad': Jesse bugs out

After focusing so much on pulling the threads of the figurative (chemistry teacher) sweater to reveal what was underneath, the past few weeks on "Breaking Bad" have been violent.

That’s not to say last night was light on the storytelling. For one, we finally found out the cartel’s question: Will you give us your meth recipe? Before deciding to give them the math behind the meth, though, Gus made a grand spectacle in the middle of a firefight to prove he was no folding coward.

With the reckless abandon of season 1-era Walter White, Gus walked straight into the cartel’s sniper fire. In the face of such badassery, the gunman flashed a respectful smirk and disengaged, natch. Though Gus was unscathed physically, his pride surely took a hit when he decided it was time to share that secret Pollos Hermanos recipe.

JT doesn't care if you don't take him seriously

He’s been focused on films for a while now, but Justin Timberlake assures fans in a recent interview that he's not leaving the music scene for good...although he admits his pop stylings aren’t exactly deep.

But, as the 30 year-old star explains in an interview with ShortList, he “never cared about being taken seriously as a musician."

"I do pop music,” says Timberlake. “I’m not saving the world." (Thank you, Captain Obvious.)

The end of 'Entourage'

The end of 'Entourage'

Earlier this week I found myself bugged by two very pressing questions. The first was whether Don Julio Jones is the right name for both of my fantasy football teams, and the other, more pertinent question had to do with "Entourage's" series finale.

When "Entourage" says goodbye for good, where will the finale rank among the likes of greats like “The Sopranos,” “The Wire” and “Sex and the City”?

Fortunately, I had the pleasure of speaking with a guy who might know a thing or two about answering that question: Jerry Ferrara, aka Turtle.
