The double positive that’s bred a negative that may evolve into a positive sign of a clearer picture to come to the liking of a certain show’s fans…?
’90s sitcom hit Will & Grace is back on NBC and it’s already been renewed for a second season. That’s the first positive. The next positive is that this second round of success for the original cast, writers, directors and crew members of Will & Grace is forcing its fellow “Must See TV” shows of yester-decade to think about a comeback, however brief.
Enter Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander from a very recent interview.
Yes, we (and the cast and writers) know all the complaints about the infamous Seinfeld series finale. Cognizant of this reality, Larry David wrote up a clever non-reunion reunion of Seinfeld on his second hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO several years ago. It was fantastic, which begs the question as to why the famous four-some (well, five-some) would risk their successful redo for the unknown on NBC? There’s no serious reason to do a reboot. However, Larry David’s comedic stock is at an all-time high right now…
A return to network primetime for Seinfeld, in whatever capacity, wouldn’t be nothing.
Prediction: If the seemingly impossible happens and Seinfeld returns to NBC, ladies and gentlemen, expect the Soaring Nineties to make a comeback like it’s never been imagined before.
Except by NBC. Because, you know, that pesky thing called “ratings.”
