The Meta-Meta Sitcom

Former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow has signed to star in a new sitcom for HBO. In the show, called "Comeback," Kudrow will play an actress coming off a hit sitcom who attempts to resurrect her career, while everyone recognizes her as her old character.

Which is great, except the exact same idea was discussed two years ago on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," as the premise of a potential post-"Seinfeld" sitcom for Jason Alexander- the same episode containing Alexander's classic argument with Larry David over whether or not George Costanza was a loser. How many different levels of "meta" is this?
