Trivia

Michael Patrick stated that the only thing they changed from the pilot is that Valerie and Mark's sexual life is intense. They did change it because they thought that among everything bad happening around her a dead end sexual life would be too brutal for the character. They wanted the audience to know that "the character had love but was choosing to walk in front of a train instead". See more »

Quotes

Valerie Cherish: Well, this is it, this is my It-wall. Used to be bigger, but then I got married and you know, you have to share. So... Um, let me show you this. *This* here is my people's choice award, that I got for I'm It. And it means a lot to me because it's from the people. So... and right here is my Leno. There it is.
Jane: Talk more about that.
Valerie Cherish: What is there to say? There was a monkey on my head and he pooed! You know - it was a real water cooler moment, you know, the whole next day everyone was... you know. ...

I'm proud of Hbo for this...
7 June 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I have not been too happy with some of the shows portraying people in the business. They have usually been SO over the top that it sucks the jokes right out of it. Having seen THE COMEBACK tonight I'm very happy to say that this one is right on the money! It's funny and has a fresh take on what it means to be in this business and Lisa Kudrow is quiet Genius in her delivery (the way comedy should be!) A mockumentary should be just that...making fun without hitting us over the head with the punchlines. I think HBO has delivered yet another first rate show that of course I'm already hooked on. Thanks! and I can't wait for the next episode.
