'Seinfeld' bosses, ranked

25 August 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a couple of weeks, TV (The Book) will be in stores (though you can pre-order it now), featuring my and Matt Zoller Seitz's top 100 list of American TV shows and essays extolling their greatness. Most of the book was assembled with a Talmudic level of thoroughness. But scattered throughout are some shorter, sillier lists, which we assembled more on instinct and/or what made us laugh in the moment, on subjects like TV's best spies, best mustaches, and most important articles of clothing.

"I swear to God I had something for this." (Episode Summary)Hired to protect a priceless diamond necklace — elegantly named the "Zarina" — the employees of The Figgis Agency go undercover to a "no-shit-black-tie-Hollywood gala," only not everyone gets to gown it up. Pam, Cyril and Ray pose as waiters while the rest of the crew put on their best dinner party attire in order to blend in among the friends of Academy Award-winning director Ellis Crane (John O'Hurley), aka the Hollywood elite. Queen of the ball is none other than Veronica Deane, who's wearing the Zarina in order to impress her ex-husband — or so it's implied. About halfway through the party, what can only be described as an actual insane clown posse shows up, specifically looking for the Zarina. Earlier, after Cheryl mentioned they should hire a clown to liven up the dead party, Robert Shapiro (Patton Oswalt) made a »
