    curb your enthusiasm is like another seinfeld. It has the same creator. But I dont think anythings as funny as Seinfeld can be.

    There is no show that can repeat the success of Seinfeld with the same formula.

    Sure, other sitcoms have been and are successful but not in the same way that Seinfeld was.

    I don't know, MASH did it before them, but it was and is a different era now - the internet age. There are so many channels with so much to offer, not to mention my favorite past-time, video games. It is unlikely that we will see another show that will surpass Seinfeld, but who knows.

    From 2000 to 2008? All I can think of is Scrubs. Of course, Scrubs is really no where near Seinfeld in terms of leaving a legacy behind.

    Scrubs has already with less running time more fans than Seinfeld. And I have better expectations for it than a "new Seinfeld", not only because is totally different. I hope it leaves a bigger legacy behind.

    Scrubs is better. And not only I say that.

    No doubt it was better. Too bad it was only 3 short seasons.

    Well the ratings show differently. I guarantee, Scrubs doesn't have nearly the following that Seinfeld garnered, let alone all of the different sayings and lines that came from Seinfeld. Bottom line: Seinfeld > Scrubs

    "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is as great as seinfeld, and in some aspects it goes even further in the insanity! Is the best Sitcom on Tv in these days.

    I never made an accusation on which show was better, I was simply saying that Scrubs is not going to be leaving behind the same type of legacy that Seinfeld left.
