Sarah Palin visited Late Night With Seth Meyers to talk Donald Trump, Syrian refugees and Louis C.K. In the interview, Meyers circled back to the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special in February where – during a question-and-answer portion – the former Republican vice presidential candidate asked Jerry Seinfeld how much Lorne Michaels would pay her to run for president. She then sweetened the pot so SNL could have more comedic fodder: Donald Trump would be her vice president pick. Fast forward to November and Trump is now the Republican frontrunner.

“The Art of More,” which premieres Thursday, isn’t Crackle’s first original series. But it represents a major step forward for the Sony-owned streaming service. Crackle is best known for the Jerry Seinfeld interview show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but “The Art of More” — which stars Dennis Quaid and Kate Bosworth and takes place in the world of high-end fine-art auctions — represents a major move into the premium-drama space that has been ruled by HBO, FX, Netflix and the like. Until now, the digital network has dabbled in scripted programming with a handful of lower budget, less ambitious. »

Five years ago, there was no House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black. Amazon was shipping products, not signing Woody Allen to make television. Nobody thought Jerry Seinfeld, creator and star of one of TV's greatest series, would make a show for the Internet. Around that time, I was hired as THR's chief television critic, and I would like to think that I knew big changes were coming to the industry — but maybe not this

Last night, our pals at Grub Street caught up with Jerry Seinfeld and his wife Jessica at the Baby Buggy Gala to get his thoughts on Per Se mastermind Danny Meyer ending tipping in his restaurants. Turns out the comedian, who was once a waiter and is married to a former waitress (Jessica Seinfeld, who was terrible at that job, according to her), would be deeply sad to see the practice end, not just for the sake of the servers but because there's something intrinsically funny about the shame and secrecy of watching your friends try to do math in their head and out-generous each other. "Comedy-wise, I really like tipping," he told Grub. "I like the arguments. I like the weirdness. I like the whispering — there's no tipping without whispering. How much should I give? It's always done like it's illegal for some reason ... like if you »

Break out your special Daryl Dixon-themed calendar, 'cause it's time to mark down some premiere and return dates. Winter schedules were recently released for multiple networks, including AMC, Bravo, Crackle, Starz, and WEtv. On the AMC side, you'll get the 2016 return date for "The Walking Dead" Season 6, after its midseason break.

Mulaney was cancelled by Fox earlier this year, but the cancellation did not force comedian John Mulaney into retirement. He is back with a new comedy special on Netflix, and he is opening up about the cancellation of his comedy series.
He spoke about the end of Mulaney with Vulture, and he knew the show would be cancelled after only a few weeks on the air. The final episode of the series aired on the same night that Saturday Night Live aired its 40th anniversary special, and he wrote the Seinfied Q&A for the broadcast. This gave him some time with comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
He revealed what he talked to Seinfeld about during the night.
"No one knows this, but the last episode of that show aired the same night as the 40th. The 40th did better. But, of all »
A little more than a year ago, comedian John Mulaney was in a very different place. He was still the new comedy boom's Comic Most Likely to Succeed, a title reinforced by his acclaimed 2012 Comedy Central stand-up special New in Town — which was enjoying a phenomenal second life after its release on Netflix — and his unusually publicized stint as a writer at Saturday Night Live (it helps when you co-create Stefon). He was being compared to Jerry Seinfeld, favorably; and it was fitting, then, that his career was about to culminate with the impending early October release of the eponymous multi-camera Fox sitcom he created. Then reviews started coming out for Mulaney, and the comic was once again being compared to Jerry Seinfeld — but this time unfavorably. When the ratings ended up equally underwhelming, Fox reduced the episode order. Though the show wasn't officially canceled until the spring, the writing »

Ever wanted to take a ride with Norman Reedus? It’s your lucky day! The Walking Dead fan favorite, 46, just got his own nonfiction AMC series greenlit by the network. Ride With Norman Reedus will debut in 2016 and will be made up of six one-hour episodes, following the actor and “biker enthusiast” as he rides to different destinations. Similar to Jerry Seinfeld’s web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Reedus’ show will feature a “riding companion — a fellow actor, musician, friend, or local chopper fanatic who [...] »
As if we needed another reminder of the vast pay gap between men and women, Forbes just released their list of Highest-Paid Comedians and not one woman is featured on it. Yes, despite it being the "Year of Amy Schumer" in which she dominated almost every avenue of comedy, the top 10 list for 2015 is entirely composed of men. Jerry Seinfeld, who racked up $36 million, topped the list with Kevin Hart coming in second at $28.8 million. Meanwhile, a lucrative Vegas residency put Terry Fator in third at $21.5 million. Jeff Dunham and Russell Peters tied for fourth at $19 million, and Aziz Ansari bumped Louis Ck from the 6th spot by a mere $500K. The list continues with Gabriel Iglesias, John Bishop and »
Nearly two decades after his sitcom went off the air, Jerry Seinfeld is still laughing all the way to the bank. Seinfeld, who currently stars in the digital Crackle series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” tops Forbes’ list of Highest Paid Comedians, which was published Wednesday. According to Forbes, Seinfeld hauled in $36 million from June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015. It attributed the haul to “Seinfeld,” which Hulu purchased the rights to for $160 million, as well as his touring and “Coffee” revenue.

Jerry Seinfeld still reigns supreme in the land of funny people, at least in terms of financial earnings for the year.
According to Forbes’ list of the world’s highest paid comedians, Seinfeld pulled in $36 million between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015. Hulu’s recent acquisition of the streaming rights to “Seinfeld” for $160 million certainly provided a jolt to Seinfeld’s earnings, in addition to the money he makes from standup tours and his Crackle series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
Kevin Hart came in second on the list with $28.5 million for the year. His movies, including “Think Like a Man Too,” “Get Hard,” and “The Wedding Ringer,” plus his sellout arena tour, helped propel him from fifth place, which was his position when Forbes last ranked comedians’ earnings in 2013.

'Do you want to see something really scary?' Those are the immortal words whispered by Dan Aykroyd in Twilight Zone: The Movie. And even though his ambulance driver has surely seen a lot of horrifying things in his life, nothing could have prepared him for this! 80sTees, which traffics in novelty T-Shirts and pop memorabilia, sent out its Halloween newsletter this past week, and on the cover were a couple of very frightening costumes. No, it's not what you're thinking. There are no zombies, aliens or vampires here. These costumes bring four average New Yorkers together, and if you don't have enough friends, this ensemble just isn't going to work.
The scariest part about these costumes may just be the people wearing them. When seen on their own, it looks like people. Nothing special about it. Except these models all look like they escaped from the insane asylum. It's »
Forget coffee shops - a new web series has celebrities hanging out on the golf course. It’s called Celebrities in Golf Carts, it’s created by the Southern California Golf Association (Scga), and it is essentially the web series you get when you bring Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee to the links.
In each episode of Celebrities in Golf Carts, host Mark Willard plays nine holes with his celebrity guest before stopping in the clubhouse for a post-round beer. Two episodes of the series have been released at launch, with four more to come. Here’s the first one, featuring The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar.
YouTube may seem like an odd place for a leisurely golf web series, but the Scga believes Celebrities in Golf Carts will connect well with its target audience “We’re thrilled to launch Celebrities in Golf Carts, a web »

When the Los Angeles Dodgers kick off their postseason push Oct. 9 at Dodger Stadium, not everyone in showbiz will be rooting for them.

The showdown is a rematch of an Nlds matchup in 2006,
