How so? I never really watched Curb but only show I can think of that would be a rip off is Schitz Creek which is a Canadian show that Pop shows in the US. Other than that Pop shows old shows from 90's and a couple reality shows on 90's stars and soap reruns with the occasional movie.

How are they a copy of Curb though. What things about them just scream Curb rip off?

Celebrities playing exaggerated versions of themselves engaging in social inappropriate behavior.

I guess Creek doesn't fit but every other show I could totally substitute Larry David in for some of the characters and it would work.

Not sure Curb created that format but I see what you are saying. Exaggerating oneself and engaging in bad social behavior is Reality TV 101.

With that logic though, every show you named including Curb is just ripping off Seinfeld.
