Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Suppose they did a show and nobody watched? Jerry Seinfeld has he answer to that. NBC gave him a new series and a quick hook.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that was definitely a far cry from the old days when his sitcom ruled the ratings.
However, Sokolsky adds, this new Seinfeld seemed to be in trouble from the very beginning.
That was evident when critics given preview tapes were warned that several people in those episodes were being replaced and would not appear in the show.
Sokolsky says Seinfeld does not seem overly depressed by the situation. After all, he notes Sid Caesar, Lucille Ball and Milton Berle, among many others, had shows that failed when they attempted comebacks.
