The 11-year post-Seinfeld slump that has plagued the careers of the show's main stars may finally be coming to an end. Since Seinfeld, the gang has had bad luck in the entertainment business, thanks to canceled shows and unsuccessful efforts to break out of their Seinfeld characters. Today, however, the Seinfeld foursome (and not just Julia Louis-Dreyfus this time) are all working on interesting projects, in TV and film. Dare we say it? Is the curse broken?
What is the deal with marriage? That's a question that Jerry Seinfeld has been asking himself, and will soon be asking everyone else. The comedian is coming back to a regular television project for the first time since Seinfeld went off the air--however, he won't be starring in the new show… nor will it be a regular comedy.

Michael Richards' The Michael Richards Show lasted only seven episodes in 2000. Jason Alexander's Listen Up was bashed by critics in its 2005 22-episode run.

Fox 11 in Wisconsin is taking football fandom to the next level this weekend by actually changing its programming--not to air a sports event, that wouldn't be out of the ordinary--in order to shake up an opposing team's player.
The New York Giants visit the Green Bay Packers this Sunday to play for the NFC Championship and a spot in the Super Bowl, and the local Fox affiliate is doing what it can to ...Read more
For big-time fans of a show about nothing, a superdeluxe collector's edition DVD set of Seinfeld is going to cost something...a whole lot of somethings.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed that the special boxed set, dubbed Seinfeld: The Complete Series, is due in stores on November 6, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That is the same day the final season--season nine--of Seinfeld is released on DVD.
While season nine of Seinfeld only comes with a paltry four discs, the Complete Series pack will come on a whopping 32 platters. However, the Complete Series is for the hardcore (or ridiculously wealthy)--it's suggested list price is $283.95.
