'Seinfeld' lost episode: Cast rejected gun plot

11 July 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Seinfeld certainly had its provocative moments (see: “sponge-worthy”). So it’s hard to imagine that there was any subject too controversial for the hit comedy. But one topic did manage to cross the line: guns.

The cast and crew refused to shoot what would have been the show’s ninth episode, “The Bet.” The second season episode, written by Borat director Larry Charles, followed the friends making a bet whether or not Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Elaine Benes would purchase a gun for protection. The narrative was inspired by a firearm purchase made by Seinfeld writer Elaine Pope.

Happy 25th Anniversary, Seinfeld! Prepare To Read A Post About Nothing

5 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Seinfeld, the TV show as we know it, started out as a pilot on July 5, 1989 called The Seinfeld Chronicles. After a shaky first episode devoid of Elaine Benes and Kramer (Michael Richards played the part but he was named Kessler back then — it’s truly a bizarro-Jerry thing to watch), the show found its footing and became the pillar of nothingness that we all recognize.

When most TV shows end, they’re mourned and, if they’re lucky, they live on in syndication, but Seinfeld left such an impact on pop culture that there are references that still pop up in daily life that we’re guessing people (kids these days!) don’t even realize came from the show. From skinny mirrors to shrinkage to big salads, here are the things that are just as relevant twenty five years later. This is not comprehensive by any means, so if you »

"Seinfeld" Turns 25 -- See How the Stars Have All Aged!

4 July 2014 10:10 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Close-talkers, Soup Nazis, deadly envelopes and "yada, yada, yada" ... yep, it's time to talk about "Seinfeld."While the show about "nothing" first entered our lives 25 years ago today, famous phrases like "Not that there's anything wrong with that" and "Serenity now" are still used as commonly today as they were back in the early '90s.Starring Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander, the series ran for nine seasons as part of NBC's "Must-See TV" lineup, forever changing the cultural lexicon and ending with one of the highest-rated and most-debated series finales of all time.Regardless of how you felt about the show's ending -- which found the main gang serving a year-long prison sentence for not helping a carjacking victim -- the series is one of the most beloved of our time.From your favorite stars to guest actors like Bryan Cranston and Teri "They're Real and They're Spectacular" Hatcher, »

'Seinfeld' at 25: How the show about nothing became a huge hit

3 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this week, a former NBC sitcom made headlines by improbably returning from the dead, thanks to a website most people didn't even know was in the streaming video business. But the story of how "Community" will live again on Yahoo isn't nearly as far-fetched as the tale of another NBC Thursday sitcom, which few of the executives at the network understood, which was considered too weird and self-referential to ever succeed, and which — unlike "Community," the little cult engine that could — actually turned into the most popular show on television. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Let's look back at some of the key markers on the road from when NBC premiered a pilot called "The Seinfeld Chronicles" — 25 years ago this Saturday, in fact — to when the show that became "Seinfeld" turned into a pop culture-altering smash: * On July 5, 1989, NBC aired "The Seinfeld Chronicles" pilot, starring Jerry Seinfeld, »

Gold Derby Emmy Mvp: 'Parks and Recreation' player Chris Pratt is overdue

30 April 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The word "overdue" is thrown around a lot by awards pundits, but when it comes to "Parks and Recreation" scene-stealer Chris Pratt, there's never been a more fitting description. Shame on you, Emmy voters, for failing to nominate this scene stealer year after year! -Break- As loveable oaf Andy Dwyer, Pratt is the ultimate comedy showman. He excels at physical humor, he sings, he dances, he's a master of delivering one-liners -- heck, even his sneezes make us laugh (watch him in action below). Join the 'Parks and Recreation' chat going on right now in our feisty forum top television sidekicks, Pratt plays a character that doesn't have a lot of smarts. But that didn't stop people like Lisa Kudrow ("Friends"), Michael Richards ("Seinfeld") and last year's winner Tony Hale ("Veep") from claiming vic...' »

R.I.P. Longtime NBC Exec John Agoglia

18 March 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

John Agoglia, the tough as nails head of business affairs at NBC during its Must See TV glory days, died on March 14 after a three-year battle with cancer. He was 76. A Brooklyn, NY native, Agoglia started at NBC in 1980 after a 16-year stint at CBS, working under entertainment chiefs Brandon Tartikoff and Warren Littlefield during NBC’s heady Must See TV days. That was the good news and the bad given that, in those days, networks did not own most of the programming on their primetime schedule, so that when a series became a hit, negotiations to keep the program on the lineup often got extremely contentious, to the delight of trade reporters. Among the well-covered slug-fests in which Agoglia played a key role, were the talks to hang on to Seinfeld stars Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards at the height of that show’s popularity and they were demanding $1 million an episode. »

‘Kirstie’ Creator/Showrunner Marco Pennette Exits TV Land Series

28 February 2014 1:45 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: TV Land’s freshman comedy Kirstie just finished its freshman run on Wednesday. If it gets a second season, it will be without creator/executive producer/showrunner Marco Pennette, who is leaving. The departure is not related to Kirstie or its star, Kirstie Alley, with whom Pennette is a long-time friend. I hear there is a personal issue that makes it difficult for Pennette to perform showrunner duties on a series, which are very physically demanding. He still loves working in comedy and has joined Chuck Lorre’s freshman CBS comedy Mom for a part-time gig as a consulting producer, that is better suited for him at the moment. TV Land is expected to search for a new showrunner as part of its decision-making process on Season 2. Kirstie has not been a breakout ratings or critical hit but it features a dream cast of sitcom stars Alley, Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards. »

'Kirstie' Season 1 finale: Are you hoping for a Season 2?

26 February 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

On paper, "Kirstie" sounded like a coup for TV Land: A Kirstie Alley comeback vehicle that was also a "Cheers" reunion with co-star Rhea Perlman, as well as the TV return of "Seinfeld" legend Michael Richards.

Unfortunately, much of the sitcom's first season was met with a critical "meh." All the comedic talent in the world can't make up for subpar material, it would seem. But where did you land on the series?

Did you enjoy watching Maddie (Alley) reconnect with her long-lost son Arlo (Eric Peterson) while maintaining her Broadway lifestyle? Did Perlman and Richards as her assistant and chauffeur, respectively, inspire hilarity in your household? Are you hoping for a Season 2?

Make your voice heard and vote in our poll below!

Should TV Land renew "Kirstie" for Season 2? »

'Kirstie' preview: Jason Alexander stops by for a 'Seinfeld' reunion with Michael Richards

19 February 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fresh off his Super Bowl moment with Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander scratches another name off his "Seinfeld" reunion list with a guest appearance on TV Land's "Kirstie."

Appearing on Wednesday's (Feb. 19) episode of the Kirstie Alley comeback sitcom as Maddie's (Alley) sleazy agent, Alexander and former co-star Michael Richards share the screen for the first time since HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" mounted its "Seinfeld" reunion in 2009.

Although, as the above preview makes clear, the relationship between Maddie's agent and Frank, her chauffeur (Richards), isn't nearly as friendly as the one between George Costanza and Kramer.

Check out the preview above and be sure to tune in for the special reunion on "Kristie," airing Wednesday (Feb. 19) at 10:30 p.m. Et/Pt on TV Land. »

Jerry Seinfeld: Super Bowl 'Seinfeld' reunion was likely the last

4 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Seinfeld" fans were over the moon when Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) and George (Jason Alexander) appeared during the Super Bowl, having a cup of coffee at Tom's Diner in an extended commercial for Seinfeld's web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." Chances are that's the last time it'll happen, though.

In an interview as part of Buzzfeed Brews on Monday (Feb. 3), Seinfeld admits the stars really aligned on the reunion. "The opportunity was unique -- to be on the Super Bowl is not something that we're ever going to surpass," he says. 

However, then he lays out the sad news no fan wants to hear: "So I may be wrong, but I have a feeling you've seen the final code on that very unique experience."

That's not a definite no, though. After all, who knew two months ago Jerry and George would face down Newman (Wayne Knight) during the Super Bowl? »

Jerry Seinfeld has confirmed that the cast of Seinfeld have got back together for a "secret project" that will appear "very, very soon."

Rumours have been circulating that Seinfeld was planning some sort of return to the 90s sitcom that bears – and made – his name, after he and co-star Jason Alexander were recently pictured going into the Tom's Restaurant diner which was one of the main locations for the show.

'Seinfeld' Reunion: Jerry Seinfeld Spills Details About 'Secret Project'

30 January 2014 9:51 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

So what were Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander doing outside Tom's Restaurant, anyway? Seinfeld isn't saying exactly what the top-secret project is all about, but in an interview on WFAN-TV's Boomer & Carton show on Thursday, he did give away a few more details.

Tom's Restaurant, of course, was used as the exterior of the fictional Monk's Cafe, frequented by Jerry, George (Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Kramer (Michael Richards) in their 1989-98 hit series, Seinfeld. When an image of Seinfeld and Alexander together hit the Internet earlier this month, fans of the long-running show were abuzz with speculation about some sort of reunion.

Jerry Seinfeld Confirms ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion of Sorts

30 January 2014 8:02 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jerry Seinfeld’s “secret project” — the one he alluded to during a Reddit Ama earlier this month — is in fact a reunion of “Seinfeld,” the comedian said today.

Appearing on the “Boomer & Carton” radio show on Wfan on Thursday morning, Seinfeld answered a barrage of questions centered around a photo taken on Jan. 13 of Seinfeld with Jason Alexander, walking into the diner that served as a backdrop for many a “Seinfeld” episode.

Seinfeld said the project was not a commercial or an episode of his hit Web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and while he would not give away much in the way of details, he did say that Alexander was playing his George Costanza character and that other “Seinfeld” characters were involved.

He described the project as “short-ish form,” a “one-and-done” thing involving Larry David in some way that will be made available “very, very soon.”

Jerry Seinfeld's Reddit Ama: 12 things we learned

6 January 2014 3:04 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

First things first: Don’t refer to the Ama that Jerry Seinfeld just did as a “chat about nothing.”

“The pitch for the show” — Seinfeld, that is – ”was we want to show how a comedian gets his material,” Seinfeld explained to fans on Reddit this afternoon. The whole “show about nothing” thing, he continued, “was just a joke in an episode many years later.” To this day, Seinfeld and Larry David don’t get why it’s a phrase people keep using to describe their classic sitcom — “because to us it’s the opposite of that.”

Lesson learned! And this, »

Jerry Seinfeld on how to be funny without sex and swearing

5 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The sitcom star shares the secret of his comedy – and what he can tell about you from your driving

Once or twice a week, towards the end of the day, Jerry Seinfeld leaves the Manhattan office where he spends his afternoons writing, but he doesn't head home to his family. Instead, he shows up unannounced at some minor comedy club in New York or New Jersey, and inserts himself into that night's lineup. Seinfeld reportedly has a private jet, owns more than 40 vintage Porsches and makes at least $32m (£19.5m) a year, in large part from syndication revenue, adding to a net worth estimated at $800m (£487m) in 2010. Having spent a decade making a celebrated "show about nothing", he could easily afford to just do nothing now. But he prefers – or feels compelled – to keep honing his act, trying a new line here, shaving a word off an old one there, »
