Oy vey. Where to begin? The fourth season of Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" officially came to a close on Thursday, July 17, but I only caught up with it ... let's say, "about a week ago." The episode featured Jon Stewart and two different cars: The 1968 AMC Gremlin and the 1978 AMC AMX. They went to the Tick Tock Diner. Stewart wore a baseball cap. Some people laughed. Others wondered why he or she couldn't get the final 30 seconds of the episode to play on his or her ... read more

Funny thing: I've been on a Howard Stern kick lately. Not a watch-the-show-online-religiously kind of kick. Rather, an oh-these-are-interesting-interviews-to-listen-to kind of deal. I'm now pretty much over it, as the kids would say. But, for a day or two, I would pull up the audio on YouTube from interviews featuring famous heavy-hitters such as ... well ... Mario Lopez (??) and Jonah Hill (?) while making dinner or tidying up around the apartment. Yeah, I know. I cringed, too. Ahh, but wait. ... read more

Well, this is fun. Amid the snow, the best rhythm and blues of 2013, a brand new podcast and a love letter to "Ugly Betty" was this tiny tidbit of Great (with a capital "G") news: On the second day of 2014, this blog's favorite 15-minute comedy web-series about nothing, "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee," will return to an Internet near you.

"White House Down" and "After Earth." Remember them? One's a movie about an attack on the Leader of the Free World. The other was a Will Smith vehicle that approximately 49 people saw. In addition to being strong contenders for Oscars this coming awards season (yeah, that was sarcastic), the two films helped lead Sony Pictures to a $181 million operating loss ... in only the second quarter of this year. And yet people who make only the minimum wage can't support a household in this country. ... read more

Catching moments on television these days that stick with us can be rare. In my case in particular, I have two hurdles: 1) "The Wire," "Arrested Development" and "In Treatment" all cease to exist these days, and shows like "Mad Men" or "Breaking Bad," while good, mostly never offer up a single defining moment that leaves viewers both inspired and inquisitive, ready to yell from the mountain tops how wonderful they feel said show is (though, to be fair, the moment when Peggy leaves SCDP on the ... read more

Two big names recently officially began their latest foray into Internet television when both Tom Hanks' "Electric City" and Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" premiered online, and let's just say the response to one of them has been luke warm. Maybe even cold. Maybe freezing. Maybe ... Anyways, first to the one I can't get enough of, Seinfeld's "Comedians." It's only one episode in, but those 13 minutes with Larry David are priceless if only for how candid the footage feels. ... read more

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee: Coming to a computer near you

The curious case of Jerry Seinfeld. He picks his spots. He comes and goes. He has cameos. He puts his name on ill-fated television projects (hello, "The Marriage Ref"). He loves cars. He notes how every single episode of "Seinfeld" paid homage to the recently deceased Andy Griffith. And most importantly, he released "Comedian," a 2002 documentary about how hard it is to be a stand-up comic and how much he has struggled (however much a guy who has enough money to buy Maine can struggle, I add parenthetically) ... read more
