I had the pleasure to talk to and ask Larry King a question on his defunct radio show nearly twenty years ago. I was ten at the time and Larry was already a dinosaur. It is often debatable if the folks at CNN just roll Larry out there and prop him up to throw softball questions at the celebrities that arrive on his program to promote their project or cause.
Jerry Seinfeld sorta/kinda lost it on King’s ‘Larry King Live’ on Thursday night. King asked Jerry if ‘Seinfeld’ was canceled which didn’t please the comedian too much.
On Thursday’s “Larry King Live,” the King asked Jerry if “Seinfeld” was canceled back in the day, and Jerry seemed genuinely shocked that Larry (his “Bee Movie” co-star) didn’t know. “You think I got canceled?” Jerry shot back. “I was the number one show on television, Larry … 75 million viewers in the last episode.” Clearly, Larry is not master of his domain.
As Larry played it off and went to commercial, Jerry threw in one last zinger: “Can we get a resume in here for me for Larry to go over?” Zing!
Cut him some slack Jerry. Larry could have been one of the 200 million people who did not tune in for the final episode.
Seinfeld should get back on TV with something new, but he knows that no matter how good it might be, that it would never come close to the massive success that ‘Seinfeld’ enjoyed.
