Jerry Seinfield On Larry King?

Larry King asked Jerry this Question " You Quit Jerry, You weren't cancelled right?" Jerry Seinfield was like very upset and started talking abou how his show was #1... First of all Jerry Seinfield wasn't serious was he about being upset if Larry asked him if his show was cancelled? and second of all I don't know about you, but I didn't think Seinfield was that great of a show anyways? What do you think?

Update:

I'm not knocking the show... I always thought Kramer was funny when he use to run into the house and slide and he was a weirdo...

George was just different...

Elaine wasn't really funny....

Jerry well he was to plain...

So it was like just a dull show sometimes...

    I didn't watch Larry King, but read about the interview, and Seinfeld did his usual knee-jerk reaction. He still thinks his SH** doesn't stink, and he's also upset right now because someone said his young wife plagiarized a cookbook. The only way she got it hoisted by Oprah is that Oprah and Jerry are friends.

    I watched his show maybe a total of 6 times in all the years he was on, and my reaction was always that it was highly overrated. There were many shows better than Seinfeld's.

    Just viewed that clip. It looked and sounded like he was very upset. He kind of put Larry down. I Wasn't much on Seinfield, I watched off and on but Jerry was being a jerk. I think Larry was a bit upset that Jerry acted that way towards him. Not everyone is a Seinfield fan. Grow up Jerry you are not a god.

    He seemed annoyed... some points it seemed as if he was trying to cover it up. I mean... you gotta have a little pride in what you do... the guy was number one and to have it suggested by one of the greatest on air personas ever in Larry King that he might of been cancelled had to of been a bit of a blow... like woah, shouldn't you know this ...you ARE the news. I just think it caught him off guard because I don't think that anyone has even suggested to him that he could of been cancelled. And when I was like 11-12 I didn't think the show was funny... but as I got older and matured a little more I started to understand and enjoy the Seinfeld humor VERY much.

    I loved Seinfeld in my teens. I'll still watch it if it's on. But it was an ensemble cast, and Seinfeld was only part of that. Also, I don't care how good your show is or was, or how many people watched it, how long it was on, or how many episodes there were. Larry King is generally quite a well-regarded interviewer and Seinfeld should not have spoken to him so rudely and arrogantly (and I believe he was only half joking when he was so indignant). What a pompous ***.

    I can understand his reaction--I thought Jerry Seinfeld went on a little too long about it. It was obvious that Larry King didn't bother to do any sort of research on Jerry or his show because had he done so, he wouldn't have asked that stupid question.

    We watched Larry KIng last night and thought Jerry sounded like a big pompous bore. My husband commented that without the other cast members, he'd never have made it!

    Yes, he was geniunely upset, lol. If he wasn't then he never let up, which most comedians will do if they're joking...anyway, the show was not canceled but many thought it started to go downhill towards the end. I liked Seinfeld, it was one of my favorite 90's shows.

    Well I could see why he would be upset. There is a really BIG difference between canceled, and quit.

    But I am with you I was never a Seinfield fan.

    I'm sorry, BUT, anyone I have ever known who did not "get" Seinfeld show humor, or really didn't think it was funny was pretty much socially retarded, especially Kathy M. @ Soundings. Loser. The reason why people didn't think it was funny is because they are "dim-witted", not "quick-witted". Seinfeld was all about a show of things that people always do that they shouldn't do, pretty much...so, the people who didn't get it are in essence "IDIOTS".

    Seinfeld is a classic. One of the best. Jerry was acting mad for sure. That's his personality. :) HOpe this helps.
