And who could forget this incredible moment with Jerry Seinfeld:

It’s official – er, officially possible. Seinfeld has long been seen as the holy grail of potential TV revivals, and its star and co-creator finally concedes that Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer may join the ranks of iconic TV shows brought back for an encore.
Commercials and Curb Your Enthusiasm are about as close to a Seinfeld revival as we’ll ever get, but in an age where new Twin Peaks graces Showtime, anything seems possible. In fact, giving Seinfeld the same eerie teaser as Twin Peaks’ return might just make the best case, in a new parody you have to see.
Seinfeld was no stranger to discarded episodes, but at least a few ideas were probably better off on the scrap heap. Writer-producers David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer reveal a few Seinfeld concepts that never made it past the writers room, including skeletons, a trip to Mexico, and a pretty literal twist on the Soup Nazi.
If you thought Netflix’s commitment to stand-up comedy was big before, between new specials for Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer, read the Sein. Not only has Jerry Seinfeld inked a deal for two new standup specials, but the entirety of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, past and future, will move to Netflix.

The flop sweat starts to gather at the small of your back, and all of a sudden, you regret not taking the bottle of water they offered you backstage. The colloquial turn is ‘choking’ or ‘bombing,’ and it happens to the best of the best. They admit as much themselves in the new trailer for the upcoming stand-up documentary Dying Laughing; all the Emmys in the world can’t protect the biggest talents in the world from an occasional nuclear-class bombing, and the upcoming doc captures all the agony and ecstasy of life in comedy.
Seinfeld is truly the gift that keeps on giving, whether bestowing all its episodes on modarn platforms like Hulu, putting Jerry and Elaine on the road together, or unveiling surprise stories of the past. Latest from the treasure trove is Jason Alexander’s explanation of Heidi Swedberg’s Susan Ross, whom the cast apparently hated working with, and conspired together to kill off.
It's real! The Super Bowl has already brought us some incredible promo spots from the likes of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' but nothing quite so glorious as the long-awaited 'Seinfeld' reunion between Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander. Jerry himself may have told a white lie, as the full reunion spot has emerged as an epi
