Kelly Ripa Gets Raunchy in 'Live' Thanksgiving Gadget Segment (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 23rd 2011 1:15PM
Over the past few years, Kelly Ripa was often Regis Philbin's voice of reason, reeling in the old cad when he went too far off the deep end. But now that he's gone, Ripa's letting it all hang out. In a 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) segment spotlighting some wacky Thanksgiving gadgets, Ripa donned a red-wine-filled bra and joked about a possible alternate use for a Robo-Stirrer.

As resident technology expert David Pogue introduced the Robo-Stirrer, which can robotically stir a pot as it simmers. "Once you take off the soup, it makes a "darn fine back-massager," he said, to which Kelly jokingly replied, "Allright ladies, well I think we all know what's that code for." Pogue was horrified, yelling out, "Oh my god!" and even Jerry Seinfeld seemed taken aback. All the comedian could muster was, "That's the first time someone in Manhattan has said 'darn fine,' but let's keep going."

Seinfeld Tells Kim Cattrall That Samantha Was 'The Kramer' of 'Sex and the City' (VIDEO)

When Kim Cattrall stopped by 'Live With Kelly!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Kelly Ripa ask her the obligatory 'Sex and the City' movie question. Even though the latest film was panned by critics, Ripa spoke for die-hard 'Sex and the City' fanwomen everywhere, who are still clamoring for another installment in the series. Cattrall joked that the actors "are always the last to know," but said she'd love to do another movie, because she has so much fun making them.

That's when guest-host Jerry Seinfeld cut in, and pointed out some similarities between 'Seinfeld' and 'Sex and the City.' "I always felt like there was a certain similarity ... and I mean this in a good way ... Sarah Jessica and I were kind of like the hub of the wheel, and then you had these other eccentric characters, and you were kind of the the Kramer of the show."

Jerry Seinfeld Asks New Yorkers Who Should Replace Regis (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 21st 2011 5:30PM
Today began a new era in daytime TV, as 'Live With Regis and Kelly' became 'Live With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) in the wake of Regis Philbin's retirement. Kelly was joined by Jerry Seinfeld, who's serving as her temporary co-host. "I feel very honored that you invited me ... to be the first person to be part of Operation Smooth Transition," he said early in the show. And although Regis' absence has left 'Live' with an identity crisis, Seinfeld, at least today, capably filled the void.

But the question of Kelly's permanent co-host still needs to be answered. Jerry took to the streets, hoping the people of New York might have the answer, but everyone he asked suggested he take the job permanently. "Who that we could afford?" he quipped. When the next person insisted that he would be a good fit, Jerry jokingly caved. "Alright, I'll take it."

It's Regis Philbin's Last Day on 'Live!' -- Now He Wants to Host 'SNL'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 18th 2011 7:45AM
Today is Regis Philbin's last day co-hosting 'Live! With Regis and Kelly,' but it seems as though thoughts of retirement are still far from the 80 year-old's mind. Talking to reporters after Thursday's show he said "I feel pretty good," but he did admit that he may not feel quite so good next week when the show carries on without him.

"I wasn't looking forward to this moment," said Philbin. "You never are in your life when you're leaving a success that you worked your tail off to make." However, the hardest working man in television won't be idle for long. He's embarking next week on a US book tour to promote his new memoir, 'How I Got This Way,' and he's already been toying with the idea of making his own reality show.

However, he told 'The New York Times' that what he'd really, really like to do is host 'Saturday Night Live.' Saying it would be "irresistible" if he got the call, Philbin quipped "It's come up in my mind, but not theirs. I think the audience for that show would rather have some young guy playing a vampire somewhere."

Jerry Seinfeld, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Just like Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, reportedly used therapy to encourage gay people to go straight, Jerry Seinfeld came on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to use therapy to help Jon Stewart not crack jokes at Bachmann's more effeminate traits.

And he used the most abrupt and startling therapy methods known to modern medicine ... and barbaric medicine as well. He slapped sense into Stewart when he couldn't control his urges to crack jokes about Bachmann's dance moves or his speaking voice.

Former 'Marriage Ref' Contestant Blames Show, Jerry Seinfeld for His Divorce (VIDEO)

Howie Kohlenberg claims 'The Marriage Ref' ruined his marriage on 'Good Morning America''The Marriage Ref' is supposed to settle disputes between married couples, but according to former contestant Howie Kohlenberg, it broke his marriage apart. Kohlenberg appeared Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) and blamed the show and its creator, Jerry Seinfeld, for his divorce. After getting a taste of fame from appearing on the show's debut episode, Kohlenberg said that his then-wife's Christine's behavior began to change for the worse.

"They were saying how Christine looked so great and her lips were beautiful and all of a sudden she's getting a really big head, she's doing some Botox, she wants to do Playboy," said Kohlenberg. After the show, she left Kohlenberg and their four-and-a-half-year old son to go to Hollywood, he said.

Seinfeld's reaction to the story, which was quoted in the Daily News, was a less-than-apologetic "Love it!" The couple initially went on 'The Marriage Ref' to get publicity for their spa business, which, like their marriage, is now defunct.

'The Marriage Ref' Is Back With a New Format and Giant Pumpkins (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 27th 2011 5:50AM
'The Marriage Ref' season premiere'The Marriage Ref' (Sun., 10PM ET on NBC) returned with a slightly tweaked format this season. Now, the couples are brought into the studio, and the audience gets to pick which person was the most right and that person will get a billboard in their hometown telling everyone they were right. Oh, and they'll also pocket a cool $25,000.

The most memorable of the three couples was definitely the Johnsons. The wife was frustrated because of her husbands obsession with all things pumpkins, including growing gigantic ones and even naming them.

The celebrities were on his side, though Jerry Seinfeld told him to do something about how ugly they look when they get so big.

Hamm and Seinfeld Will Talk 'Curb' on TV Guide Network

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 8th 2010 6:01PM
'Curb Your Enthusiasm'The TV Guide Network seems to be really trying to increase their original content, and they seem to be doing it the right way. And I'm not saying it because I've appeared on the channel. No, it's because they're really trying to go beyond just having listings scroll on the bottom of the screen and presenting red carpet arrival specials. They're acquiring shows, treating them right, and adding value to them.

Take the case of the network's acquisition of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' Not only did the network decide to run each episode in its entirety in a one-hour timeslot, a good move considering that Larry David would have tore what's left of his hair out trying to edit them, they've decided to fill the hour with panel discussions that relate to the "issues" brought up during the episode.

Among the announced panelists are going to be Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Hamm, Seth Green, Rob Zonbie, Taraji P. Henson, Adam Carolla and Patti Stanger (yes, the 'Millionaire Matchmaker' herself will weigh in on 'Curb's' issues). The panels will be hosted by Susie Essman.

Lunatics Running The Asylum: 'The Marriage Ref' Could Use a Real Coach

by Mark Wigmore, posted Mar 26th 2010 8:41PM


For nine seasons, NBC and Jerry Seinfeld successfully dominated the ratings with the self-proclaimed show about nothing. According to producers, the rules of the ever-popular and manically-rerun 'Seinfeld' series were simple – no hugging, no learning. Who knew that Seinfeld could accomplish all of these goals all over again with his new series, 'The Marriage Ref'?

Now nearing half a dozen episodes, 'Ref' attempts to solve the little squabbles plaguing married couples, pegging one against the other in a win or lose contest. The show found a home on NBC thanks to the tragedy that was 'The Jay Leno Show,' the 10 pm-slotted experiment that went horribly wrong.

The Seinfeld-produced reality/game show was fast-tracked into the open Thursday position. 'Ref' features stand-up comedian and long-time pal to Jerry, Tom Papa, as the so-called Ref. According to his website bio, he has no experience in the field of couples therapy or any other professional credit in the field. That's why we decided to talk to a real psychotherapist, someone who actually dispenses advice to warring couples.

Thanks to Larry David, Last Night's 'Marriage Ref' Was (Almost) Good

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 12th 2010 2:02PM
Larry David, Madonna, and Ricky Gervais on 'The Marriage Ref'
I don't know why I keep watching 'The Marriage Ref.' I hated the smugness and the idiocy of the premiere, and the second episode, with Tina Fey, Eva Longoria and Jerry Seinfeld passing judgment on couples' arguments, was even more painful to watch. But I wanted to watch last night's episode before I dismissed the show completely.

Why? Maybe I like rubbernecking when I see smoking wrecks like this, whether they're on the highway or on my TV. Maybe I'm a masochist. But I'd like to think that my patience with this show was due to the high-powered panel that Seinfeld had coming up for the show's third episode: none other than Ricky Gervais, Larry David and Madonna.

My patience was rewarded... somewhat. What this episode showed me was that, with the right panel, the show can be entertaining and the smugness level can be tolerable, especially if the celebrities spend as much time ripping on each other as they do the hapless couples on the show. And with the self-loathing David around, you knew that there was a pretty good shot of that happening.

"I appreciate it perhaps more now, because then I was so busy," Trump said, referring to when he had children at an earlier age. "I'm still just as busy, but I think I appreciate ... the children maybe a little bit more."

Seinfeld explained that Ripa has been incorrectly telling one of the jokes that she appropriated from him. "That's why it fell flat," she said.

Jerry Seinfeld Riffs on Pop-Tarts on 'Letterman' (VIDEO)

David Letterman, Jerry SeinfeldPop-Tarts are great fodder for stand-up comedians. If you haven't heard Brian Regan's bit on the toaster pastry, hop over to YouTube and check it out. It's hilarious.

Jerry Seinfeld did a pretty good bit about the fruit-filled pastries on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). It makes perfect sense that the toaster companies were in on it from the beginning. And NASA! It's all coming together now.
