'The New York Times' Says Jerry Seinfeld Is Failing to Pay It Forward

"Mr. Seinfeld, more than most, could use his show to give a platform to comics needing discovery. Instead, he packs it with fellow stars. They reminisce together about the days when they were nobodies and given glorious breaks, and seem almost unaware that there are nobodies today who could benefit from breaks of that very kind."

- The New York Times in a new piece comparing the "everyman scrutiny" of Seinfeld to the comedian's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which has drawn criticism for its lack of guest diversity.

Jerry Seinfeld on Why Modern Late Night Talk Shows Make Him Sad

The Hollywood Reporter has an excellent, lengthy interview with Jerry Seinfeld out today, and in it, he talks about why modern late night talk shows just aren't the same:

"Most talk shows leave me with a sad feeling, and I don't think that's the goal. When I was a comic in the 1980s, I was on the road somewhere every day, and I'd get back to the hotel and it was Carson and Letterman, and I looked forward to that all day. Those shows made me happy. I'm not quite sure what happened. It's probably just proliferation and fragmentation …

These shows are promotional vehicles for the industry. They're not talk [...]

Watch Chris Rock on the Season Finale of Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

Here's the season two finale of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, featuring Chris Rock. It's pretty great to see these two veteran standups talk to each other.
