Four Episodes Left!! Learn How The Third Season Of ENTOURAGE Ends!!

I am – Hercules!!

“Entourage’s” third season ends this month but, as fans of the Howard Stern Show know, HBO is already shooting another season for us with Leslie Bibb and Artie Lange. In the meantime, does Vince want to put on a wig for a big-screen biography of The Ramones?

The season finale is titled “Sorry, Ari.”

Episode #31: "Vegas Baby, Vegas!"
Debut date: SUNDAY, AUG. 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) Other HBO playdates: Aug. 8 (3:30 a.m.), 9 (10:30 p.m.), 10 (midnight), 11 (11:30 p.m.), 12 (10:00 p.m.) and 26 (10:15 p.m.) HBO2 playdates: Aug. 7 (9:00 p.m.) and 8 (8:00 p.m.)
The guys head to Vegas for a much-needed break, and a $100K promo appearance for Vince (Adrian Grenier). The appearance turns out to be more than they thought it would be, with Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) reaping the benefits. Eric's (Kevin Connolly) jealous side is brought out by Seth Green's insinuating comments about Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui). Vince and Ari (Jeremy Piven) partner at the tables, but Ari freaks out when Vince's luck wavers. Drama (Kevin Dillon) pours compliments on his masseur, leading to an awkward misunderstanding. Written by Doug Ellin; directed by Julian Farino.

It's the day of Turtle's record-deal signing, but Saigon is MIA, sending Drama and Turtle on a hunt to track him down. Ari plays "matchmaker" by dumping old-school producer Bob Ryan (Martin Landau) on Eric. But sequestered in Ryan's mansion after hours, Eric finds what may be the perfect next project for Vince. Meanwhile, Vince spends the day with a girl he meets in a bookstore and becomes smitten, only to find out he was on her "list." Written by Doug Ellin & Lisa Alden; directed by Julian Farino.

Eric, Ari and Bob Ryan pitch the Ramones project to the studios, but Ari and Bob clash when both vie for the driver's seat. Turtle covets some limited-edition sneakers and Vince helps him work every possible connection to get a pair. And it's finally the first day of shooting on Drama's new pilot.

    i thought

    by amievil

    i read somewhere that they were doing what the Sopranos did...showing part of the season now and then finishing it up next are they really considering that another season or is this really only like the "mid-season" finale?

  • Aug. 6, 2006, 2:17 p.m. CST


    by Kungfumanchu

    Unless I missed it, which Ramone is he trying to play? Surely not Joey. Dee Dee maybe?

    Werent we getting 20 Ep's this season?

  • Aug. 6, 2006, 4:10 p.m. CST

    I thought the same thing, Giz.

    by zool43

    I had even heard it was 22. This really pisses me off. When does the second half of the season air?

  • Aug. 6, 2006, 4:12 p.m. CST

    There are 20 eps this season

    by BankyFan

    but they are doing a Sopranos-esque back 8. They're going to premiere when the Sopranos does, the idea being that HBO is passing the torch to what'll be its new "it" show.

  • Aug. 6, 2006, 4:50 p.m. CST

    So it is 20 something epsiodes?

    by Kevin Bosch

    I heard 18 and I heard 22. I definitly did not hear 12, since last season was 14, and I was sure this season would be more. If they're doing the split season, thats fine, that way we wont have to wait till next june for more shows (and then a shorter wait till next season). But this season better not be over in four episodes, cause not enough stuff has happened, and dammit, i wanted 18/20/22 episodes!

    Howard Stern is a hack

    by JorEl214

    "as fans of the Howard Stern Show know, HBO is already shooting another season for us with Leslie Bibb and Artie Lange." he still does a show? I didn't know that.

  • Aug. 6, 2006, 10:37 p.m. CST

    What only 12 episodes?

    by TheDoctor73

    There are only 12 episodes? Last season was 14.

    But Vince isnt' pasty enough to play one of the Ramones...Gabba Gabba Hey....

    A Vegas strip club with no naked chicks...W T F???

    by Rupee88

    They've cut the balls off of this show because they are whoring for syndication money down the road. Why have a strip club and no titties??...just absurd and fucking sad.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 7:20 a.m. CST

    the key to playing a pasty-faced ramone?

    by Trader Groucho 2

    make-up. and lighting.

    Great writing this season

    by Trader Groucho 2

    Vince, Eric and Ari are taking turns fucking up Vince's career. Meanwhile, Drama gets a pilot and Turtle's on his way to becoming Suge Knight. Green definitely got the best line this ep. It's the kind of line they probably wrote for Piven and gave to Green since he's the guest star. And it didn't once occur to me that I would want any of THOSE strippers to take off their tops. Anyone who wants to see uncovered breasts that badly can find them on the Net within a couple of mouse clicks, so what's the big deal?

    Crap writing this season

    by mrandrew

    seriously this season blows. even though the same people who wrote last season are credited for writing this season i can't help but think they had interns do everything. the show has lost all the tension that made it great with ari vs vince and co. there is no subtlety anymore either. last nights show has drama talking all brokeback to his massuese all episode and then, surprise!, the massuese thinks he wants to have gay sex with him! wow, didn't see that coming. last season was awesome. this season is so painful it pisses me off.

    by rightarm4Rosario

    as far as the writing ... say what you will, but its better than just about anything on network television these days. I enjoyed/enjoy SMALLVILLE when I get a chance to watch it, but it is fast-approaching hackery. The writers of Entourage are at least trying new things, even if they lay an egg here and there. BTW, when the hell are they going to have a Rosario Dawson cameo (have they already?) - I'm pretty sure she would do it. Hell - how about a Comic-Con episode??

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 1:24 p.m. CST

    rightarm4Rosario, are you kidding?

    by DanielKurland

    Season two had an episode that revolved all around Comic-Con. In regard to the quality of the writing, I don't know if I agree or not. Season 1 and 2, I watched consecutively on DVD, and obviously now, when you have to wait a week for an episode, it's less good, so I don't know if the writing itself has lost momentum, or if I were to watch all of season three back to back, if there'd still be a noticeable difference.

    I Love You Drama-Cakes!

    by topaz4206

    Oh man the Drama stuff was amazing! The joke was not that the masseuse went gay, the joke is how oblivious Johnny is to the fact that he's gay for his masseuse. "I don't want those hands touching anyone else tonight" lol. I love when Doug Ellin writes an episode by himself

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 3:13 p.m. CST

    So what ever happened to these plotlines.

    by HellKing

    Carla Gugino would play an agent that steals Chase away from Ari... Lloyd we find out is a part of the gay mafia... Lloyd becomes an agent... All of these were supposed to be a part of this season.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 3:49 p.m. CST

    Don't know if Vincent Chace is hard enough

    by beefywhore

    to play any Ramone... I'm not even sure he is hard enough to play a pool boy named Ramone....

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 5:37 p.m. CST

    I stopped watching this season...

    by andrew coleman

    Becuase of the writing but maybe I was too harsh on this show. I'll give this season another chance on dvd.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 6:50 p.m. CST


    by ennui

    this season has been a letdown, and the latest episode was symbolic of the rest. The brokeback drama, ari freaking out during a losing streak and the strippers were so cliche, obvious and boring that I rate this the worst episode ever done........but then the jackson pollack line nearly saved it.

  • Aug. 8, 2006, 12:54 p.m. CST


    by Rupee88

    And it made no sense that Ari wanted to gamble more...he would be too smart for that and know that the odds were they would give more money to the casino. It was just some forced writing...not a terribe episode but pretty substandard. And having a Vegas strip club with no nudity was just the icing on the crappy tasting cake. The masseuse bit was overdone...but Drama is too over the top for me most all the time, so nothing new there.

  • Aug. 9, 2006, 6:01 a.m. CST

    I don't know what some of you are talking about,

    by Samuel Steamer

    that was possibly the best episode of the series!

  • Aug. 9, 2006, 9:23 a.m. CST

    So E beat the crap out of Seth Green?

    by cookylamoo

    Awesome! And look at Turtle go. Don't mess with that Fatboy.
