Taking inspiration from a recent clip of Family Feud edited to only include actual gameplay, a Reddit user recently edited out all the jokes from episodes of Seinfeld, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory, and the result is an interesting glimpse at how all three sitcoms approach plot, punchlines, and the relationship between the two. Unsurprisingly, the Seinfeld episode clip from "The Junior Mint" is the longest at 3:02 (and still manages to be pretty funny) while The Big Bang Theory couldn't even make it to the 1:30 mark.

It seems safe to assume that the reunion will in fact [...]
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."
The last big project Seinfeld and David did together was Seinfeld playing himself in a Curb Your Enthusiasm arc about a Seinfeld reunion, but that was entirely written by David. Whatever this new project [...]
It's strange that there are so many billboards for Seinfeld syndicated airings in big cities in 2013, and The Onion has a great article about the phenomenon today called "Billboard Alerts Drivers To Existence Of Situational Comedy Starring Stand-Up Comedian Jerry Seinfeld." Here's the best part:
