TV's Kramer apologizes for racial slurs

On Friday, former Seinfeld star Michael Richards spewed racial obscenities to hecklers as he performed stand-up at Los Angeles comedy club The Laugh Factory. By Saturday, video footage of the actor's breakdown was all over the Internet.

The comic actor also performed Saturday at the comedy club, but gave no comment to CNN and other news outlets. Friend Jerry Seinfeld released a statement saying, "I'm sure Michael is...sick over this horrible, horrible mistake. It is so extremely offensive. I feel terrible for all the people who have been hurt."

Now, Seinfeld will appear tonight as a previously scheduled guest on Late Night With David Letterman, and he comes bearing a videotaped apology from Richards.

"I lost my temper onstage," Richards says in his statement, portions of which ran on tonight's CBS Evening News With Katie Couric. "I was at a comedy club trying to do my ...

Seinfeld DVD set to cost $280

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.

Almost $300 gets fans all 180 episodes of the show, as well as a bunch of extras, including a 226-page Seinfeld coffee table book that even Kramer would love. Other bonuses include a DVD featuring a roundtable reunion with ...

Comedian and sitcom legend reportedly in talks to return to NBC in a Curb Your Enthusiasm-style show.

Seinfeld yada yada new NBC show yada yada

The one main cast member of Seinfeld who hasn't really tested the "Seinfeld curse"--the idea that television shows are predestined to bomb if they star the actors who portrayed Jerry, Elaine, George, or Kramer--is Mr. Seinfeld himself.

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. Before finding solid ground with The New Adventures of Old Christine, Julia Louis-Dreyfus tried Watching Ellie in 2002-2003, but viewers didn't and it only lasted a dozen episodes.

Now, a decade after Seinfeld bowed out, it appears Jerry Seinfeld is ready to give television another shot. A report by Page Six says the New York native is in discussions to star in a ...

The End of the Post-Seinfeld Slump?

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?

This is a show about nothing; however, for a show about nothing, this show has many complex plots, sub-plots, is very well written and put together. So much so that until the public caught onto the series, the television critics were responsible for helping to keep it alive. The critics further went on and made the series victorious in every category it was eligible for in the 1st Annual American Television Awards. Seinfeld has also won a few Emmy Awards, the George Foster Peabody Award for 1992 and many more. Many of the early episodes were based on the life experiences of series co-creator, Larry David. Stories such as The Stock Tip and The Jacket really happened, as did many others. Across the hall from Larry lived a man named Kenny Kramer, who aside from the physical comedy aspects, lives the life of TV Kramer. Find out all about him at the real Kramer's web site. Some aspects were based on Jerry's life. Jerry's real address in NYC when he was struggling comic was 129 W. 81 St., this is the address used for his building in the series. In the series, Jerry lives in apartment 5A, Kramer in 5B. Viewer Jason Dean Vaupel notes that in a couple of episodes of the second season, Jerry lives in apartment 3A. And Newman's apartment has usually been 5E, but viewer Jeff Holland notes that it sometimes is 5F and that 5E was rented out to someone else as already noted in the episode, The Conversion. Their building is called The Shelley according to viewer Kipp Teague whose discerned that from the awning on the building. However, that building is actually located in Los Angeles, the building at the real address in NYC is much different. Jeff Holland also notes that The Shelley has no visible fire escapes, but there is one outside of Jerry's window. Other aspects are composite of both lives. For example, Elaine's character is half based on Jerry's ex-girlfriend Carol Leifer. Carol joined the production staff in the 5th season. An ex-girlfriend of Larry David's, named Monica Yates, whose father was a noted writer in the other half of the Elaine equation. Larry David once wore a suede jacket that got wet while meeting her father. Another viewer, Bobby Bank, notes that a tribute to Jerry's father is seen in occasional episodes. Jerry's father, named Kal, worked in the sign business, so occasionally in the background you may see a sign that says Kal's Signs. Bobby stated in a trade magazine for the sign industry called Signs of the Times that he... Quote: had the pleasure of meeting and working with Kal in the early 70s when we were producing Jewelite (Bobby's company) letters for him. I remember Kal saying, 'Bobby, you should meet my son Jerry. He's a real funny guy.' Viewer Robert Buchanan also reminds me that it is ironic that Jerry's father's name is Kal, and Superman's real Kryptonian name is Kal-El. Most every episode takes place in Jerry's apartment; however, there are (of course) a few exceptions: The Chinese Restaurant, The Pen, The Parking Garage, The Subway, The Limo, The Airport, The Movie, The Hamptons, The Merv Griffin Show & The Dealership. While no activity occurs there, an empty apartment is shown in The Puerto Rican Day.
