Jerry Seinfeld's Next Show Takes Tedium to a Whole New Exhilarating Level

Have you folks seen much about Jerry Seinfeld’s new web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”? The title pretty much says it all: Jerry Seinfeld and a host of his friends jump in one of the many $200,000 cars from his classic car collection and drive to a coffee shop, where they have … coffee. Besides the fact that I don’t give a shit how obscenely wealthy old white men spend their leisurely afternoons (which is all of them), the whole premise rubs me the wrong way. It’s one thing to make a show about nothing, but this is Seinfeld almost literally doing nothing and attempting to financially gain from it. Also, what kind of narcissistic asshole thinks that there’s a whole universe of people that want to watch the man drive to a coffee shop with his friends.

I’ll give it this much, though: At least there’s no contrived drama, unless Jerry purposely dropped that coffee mug.

Here’s the extended promo for the show, which begins on July 19th.
