LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor and stand-up comic Jerry Seinfeld is headed back to U.S. television with a show about marriage that he says is silly and impossible to explain but aimed at making people laugh.

"There is no way here today we are going to be able to explain to you exactly what the show is," the married star of the hit 1990s show "Seinfeld" told reporters. "Our entire drive is to try and make you laugh," he said, describing "The Marriage Ref" as a combination of reality show, game panel and comedy with no big prizes for its feuding contestant couples.

Sure, I like Jerry Seinfeld. I'll give it a go.

People don't like things they can't define.

Maybe it's because they still can't help being associated with their characters. That happens a lot with successful shows

No, not my thing.

I might, just to see if its any good.

I will probably watch it. I'm a big Seinfeld fan.

If this show involves real couples having cameras film their lives & panelists judging who should 'win' the argument, I won't be checking it out. I can definitely see the comedic potential but I personally don't think becoming reality TV stars is healthy for any relationship- or any human psyche for that matter.
Its also gotten to the point where the kind of people who seek to be on reality TV tend to be mentally unstable narcissistic douchebags at worst (Mr. & Mrs. Ballon Boy, et al), and at best its too tempting for people not to act naturally in front of a camera so it seems contrived anyhow. I'm just sick of watching trainwrecks, especially when they spill over into the tabloids. I think its kind of sick to be so fascinated by the destruction of someone's family, even if its their own fault. Admittedly I doubt this new show's format will result in that sort of thing.

Naw. Every couple i know including me, that went into relationship or marriage counselling, wound up just breaking up or divorcing anyway.

I saw Larry David on there Thursday night.

It was good stuff.

No. Jerry Seinfeld (as well as the rest of the actors from the show) annoys the crap out of me.
12 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/13/10 - 5:51:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
no. it looks fakey
12 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/15/10 - 9:22:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's pretty stupid - I caught one episode. It's fun to see the celebrities on there but it's really a silly concept.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/31/10 - 1:04:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
He's not very funny.

There's something going on here: I'm either too stupid to appreciate TV, or nearly all of TV isn't worthwhile.

Nah, it's cheap.
