Seinfeld’s “Marriage Ref,” Vanished in March, Now Set for June 26th
I told you in November that episodes of Jerry Seinfeld’s “The Marriage Ref” had been taped for a second season. I told you then that Regis Philbin, Tracy Morgan, and Susie Essman had taped episodes. Then “The Marriage Ref” went on NBC’s schedule for March 6th. It never aired, and no one ever explained what happened. Now comes word that the show, hosted by Tom Papa, will return on June 26th. Maybe. Who knows? As I reported in November, at least Regis and Tracy are in the first episode. Was this the one taped in November? That’s a long time ago. But classic comedy is timeless. According to a press release, Julianne Moore, Ricky Gervais, Kathy Griffin, Ellen Pompeo, Joel McHale, Rachel Ray, Bill Maher, Patti LaBelle, Seth Meyers, Judah Friedlander, Will.i.am and Ali Wentworth are all scheduled to make appearances. Remember this show is about those guests and not the daffy real life couples. I still refer to the Larry David, Madonna, Ricky Gervais show as moment of actual brilliance. Let’s hope lightning strikes again.
