One of the--if not the--very best SNL skits. (You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate it, but it helps.)
Short version: almost all of the cast makes nada. Jerry and Larry are the only ones who get a cut.
Representatives from The Sopranos and The Wire are ranked too low. But the list is impressive for its eclecticism.
35 minute video. I enjoyed The Sopranos and by all the accounts given here, the late Mr. Gandolfini was an even better person than he was an actor.
Jerry reveals a key secret of Seinfeld's success.
"Being famous and broke is a shitty combination." If this is even half true, it's an amazing story.

Made me laugh.
Seinfeld was funny. And it seems as though it was even funnier making it.
I don't know about "soul-searching," but it is amusing to watch some Lefties try to figure out what the Approved Narrative should be.
The ratings were huuuuuge. But she's normalizing Trump! Isn't it cute how she's trying to represent, a little, the deplorables? But she used to be a feminist! But the ratings were huuuuge!
See, for example, "Here's What Makes The "Roseanne" Reboot Work: Can Roseanne still be Roseanne now that its brash, unruly, feminist hero has returned to her progressive, universally lauded television show — as a Trump voter?" and "The ‘Roseanne’ Reboot Is Funny. I’m Not Going to Keep Watching." The latter includes this:
In my book “Bad Feminist,” published in 2014, I wrote about giving myself permission to be flawed but feminist. I wrote about how sometimes I consume problematic pop culture, knowing I shouldn’t, knowing how harmful that pop culture can be. I still believe there is room for that, for having principles and enjoying things that challenge those principles. But in the ensuing years, I’ve also been thinking about accountability and the repercussions of our choices. I’ve been thinking about how nothing will change if we keep consuming problematic pop culture without demanding anything better.
As I watched the first two episodes of the “Roseanne” reboot, I thought again about accountability. I laughed, yes, and enjoyed seeing the Conner family back on my screen. My first reaction was that the show was excellent. But I could not set aside what I know of Roseanne Barr and how toxic and dangerous her current public persona is.
It's a JPE! Made me laugh. (Probably only for fans of The Wire.)
