Last week's shocking news that Garry Shandling died at 66 got us all thinking about The Larry Sanders Show. The HBO program about a fictional late night talk show never got a ton of press or attention, but it was one of the funniest shows of the decades and it paved the way for The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm and countless others. We may be living in a Golden Age of Television now, but The Larry Sanders Show was just one of many amazing comedy programs of the 1990s.
