You know who ruined the Seinfeld finale? The liberal media!

Bill O'Reilly bookI read Bill O'Reilly's new book, A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity, over the weekend. The title comes from something a nun called him when he was a kid. Besides finding out how much of a great guy he is (I found this out from O'Reilly, not from friends or associates), I also found out why the series finale of Seinfeld was so bad. It was the liberal media's fault.

That's right, the FOX News host says that Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David are so cynical that they "tanked the final episode on purpose." They wanted to go out on such a low note that they made purposely made the last episode bad.

I have a lot of problems with the episode. It wasn't particularly funny, I don't think that even the self-centered foursome would let a guy get carjacked without doing anything, and I hated the fact that they brought back dozens of old characters for the court trial, especially when we had already seen those characters in the clips show that aired right before the finale. It was like a mini-clips show within the episode itself (and the whole trial was silly - doesn't David understand that these four were already punished in almost every episode for nine years?).

Speaking of that clips show, O'Reilly doesn't even know they did one. His suggestion to Seinfeld and David is that they should have done a clips show instead of the finale. The clips show ran immediately before the finale, and was seen by approximately a gazillion people (except O'Reilly, apparently). In fact, to get technical here, Seinfeld did a clips show for their 100th episode too.

Great fact-checking. I wonder if he has the same standards on The Factor?

Seinfeld's last show wasn't bad, they all were BAD!!
Larry David's show is the worst...HBO has had some of the greatest shows, and some of the worst ever.

Is O'Reilly implying that he thought that the Seinfeld characters were likable to the point that if they were real, they could've been his friends?

Oy, vey.

"Bob Sassone said...

Oh and you aren't a comedian either so stop pulling out collective legs. I suppose you think you are a moderate or an independent.

"the FOX News host says..." instead of the host of the O'Reilly Factor says...

"I also found out why the series finale of Seinfeld was so bad. It was the liberal media's fault..."
If you weren't putting a political spin on your story why word it like that? It obviously was not a quote from the book.

You can not write a story about an obtrusively political figure like Mr O'Reilly and claim it is only because he is a TV personality talking about TV.

No, the biggest "douches at the douche factory" are the activist judges who refuse to protect children from child predators. I like O'Reilly because he calls them out. Is he arrogant? Maybe so, but then again that distinction can be attributed to lots of people, or douches if you prefer.

You can catch Bob's review of Mad Men at http://www.cliqueclack.com/tv. A lot of the writers from here are posting news and reviews over there too. It looks like they're just getting started over there and it looks great so far. I think AOL is about to shut this puppy down. And for the record, I hate all politicians equally. They are either a crook or in the closet, or both. And I'm sick of hearing about Bill O'Reilly. He's the biggest douche of all the douches at the biggest douche factory.

Where did Bob mention conservatives in his post? He only mentioned O'Reily and what he said. So why are the conservatives getting offended?

But Bob, you still haven't answered where the Mad Men review is. Unless it has since been posted and I just haven't scrolled down far enough

Where is this week's Mad Men review? The experience of watching the show seems incomplete without being able to hear everyone's ideas about the episode.

I probably should have revealed this earlier, but here goes: I'm not a liberal. Just because someone doesn't like Bill O'Reilly doesn't mean he's a liberal. If I were to say I dislike Michael Moore (which I do), would you say I'm a conservative?

This was a post about a TV celeb, Bill O'Reilly, and his opinion about one of the biggest TV shows in history and my opinion of both. Nothing more needs to be read into it.

I'm a liberal that can't stand O'Rilley... but i still would have preferred reviews of Mad Men, Fringe, Entourage, TDS, or Bones over this.

...and please try and stop being so knee-jerk offended about these posts. I'd say just don't read Sassone's stuff if you're worried about getting some liberal on you, but it really doesn't seem like the post was read before complaints were lodged... "Besides finding out how much of a great guy he is (I found this out from O'Reilly, not from friends or associates)" and "Great fact-checking. I wonder if he has the same standards on The Factor?",
are hardly liberal red meat. If you're offended over that, imagine how we feel about the Sarah Palin pick.
jeez.
