Jerry Seinfeld did a Reddit AMA today to promote the third season of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and he dropped some hints about a new project he's working on with Larry David. "We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can't reveal what it is at this time," Seinfeld teased. "All I can do is tell you is that it's big, huge, gigantic."

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 [...]

Jerry Seinfeld Talks About What the 'Seinfeld' Gang Is Up to Now

The Hollywood Reporter just put out their Emmys portfolio featuring interviews with a bunch of people like Tina Fey, Mitch Hurwitz, and Hank Azaria. Here's one with Jerry Seinfeld, who's nominated for his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he talks (at the end) about what the Seinfeld characters would be up to now. "It's never going to happen," he says about a reunion special (although the gang did a faux-Seinfeld reunion as a Curb Your Enthusiasm story arc in 2009). On the characters' lives in 2013, Seinfeld says, "They're gonna be somewhat dysfunctional, as we remember them. I imagine there'll be some kids, some [...]

"My first four years on the show were rocky," Seth Meyers tells Jerry Seinfeld in the latest episode of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. "Like, 'Oh, I might be of everybody here the worst one at it. I might be the worst at impressions. I might be the worst at accents. Maybe I should just be a writer on the show. Maybe I just don't belong in this cast." In addition to Meyers reflecting on his early struggles at SNL, the episode also contains some good stories from him about Rodney Dangerfield, Liberace, and his parents' reactions to his SNL work.

'Late Show with David Letterman's Most Memorable Moments, Year by Year

After NBC chose Jay Leno to become the new host of The Tonight Show, David Letterman launched Late Show with David Letterman on August 30, 1993, changing the late night television landscape forever. On the verge of becoming the longest tenured host in late night history next year, Letterman has proven that his ironic and cantankerous sense of humor could work and be allowed to evolve at the earlier hour. While he continues to believe that he is living in his shadow, he's the contemporary equivalent of what Johnny Carson used to be, the standard and implied influence for all current and fast approaching late night talk show hosts.

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.

Jerry Seinfeld and Some Ventriloquist Top the List of 10 Highest Paid Comedians

Forbes put out its list of the "10 Highest-Earning Comedians," and Jerry Seinfeld topped the list, followed by some ventriloquist who won America's Got Talent six years ago. To be fair, though, the list only includes comedians who make the bulk of their income from live performances, so that takes everyone who has a lucrative TV or movie career out of the running, making the list significantly less meaningless than it otherwise is. Check out the mostly-depressing list below. There are some good people on it, and at least Jeff Dunham isn't #1 like the last time Forbes made one of these lists in 2010.
