TBS will air a week of 'Seinfeld' to honor the show's 25th anniversary

Too long relegated to sad, dusty obscurity, the mostly forgotten ’90s comedy gem Seinfeld will finally resurface on TBS later this month. In a press release, the network encouraged the series’s network of few-and-far-between fans to tweet with the hashtag #seinfeld25 as they discuss episodes of the critically acclaimed show about a New York comic and his quirky gang of friends. Perhaps now Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer will get the recognition and the exposure they always deserved.

From June 30 through July 5, TBS will air 25 of Seinfeld‘s most famous episodes—including “The Chinese Restaurant,” “The Serenity Now,” “The Puffy Shirt,” and “The Contest”—culled from the series’s immensely successful nine-season run (1989-1998). Episodes will air in two-hour blocks each night, concluding with a five-episode insta-binge on Saturday. Seinfeld is widely regarded as one of the greatest sitcoms ever, and the show’s stars made news earlier this year for appearing in a Super Bowl commercial.

Hopefully new initiates to the ’90s sitcom will be able to follow the famously dense and intricate plotting of the “show about nothing.” If not, though, they can also catch reruns on TBS literally any weeknight during any given week.

What’s the best way to settle a marital spat? Communication and compromise? Sure, but that’s boring and private. Why not plead your case to a bunch of celebrities on TV? On June 26, NBC will kick off the second season of  The Marriage Ref, featuring a panel of famous guests that includes Jerry Seinfeld (who serves as executive producer), Ricky Gervais, and Julianne Moore. “You put Jerry and Ricky together, and it’s like taking two fourth graders and telling them to behave,” host Tom Papa tells EW. “Then you have Julianne who’s like the smart girl in class who also has that sly look in her eye, pushing them into more trouble.”

And trouble will find them. READ FULL STORY

Judge throws out lawsuit against Jerry Seinfeld

A New York City judge has closed the book on a lawsuit filed by an author who claimed Jerry Seinfeld had damaged her reputation during a 2007 interview on Late Show with David Letterman. Missy Chase Lapine — who had accused Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica, of plagiarizing her idea for a kid-centric healthy cookbook (Jessica Seinfeld released Deceptively Delicious in 2007) — filed a lawsuit saying Jerry Seinfeld had hurt her reputation by calling her a “wacko” on the late-night show. According to the Associated Press, Justice Marcy Friedman threw out the case Friday, saying it was clear Seinfeld was joking and citing the comedian’s first amendment rights. Seinfeld’s lawyer released the following statement to EW: “Today’s decision is a complete victory for Jerry — and also a victory for the First Amendment and the right of comedians to tell jokes. The decision also vindicates HarperCollins and Jessica Seinfeld yet again, confirming what the two different federal courts have already ruled: Jessica independently created her bestselling book, Deceptively Delicious.”
