WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH 'UPFRONTS'? Seinfeld
Jerry Seinfeld surprised the crowd at Radio City Music Hall Monday afternoon at the NBC Television Upfront Presentation, spouting reasons—including material that seemed ripped from a forthcoming Poconos set—why he's not shown up on a hit sitcom in years. Then he teased an advertiser- and press-heavy crowd with a preview of a project he's doing for the fall NBC lineup.
"Can you believe I'm here?" he opened to audience laughter. "It was 10 years ago—10, exactly 10—that I walked out on stage here at these NBC fall-preview Upfronts to announce that we were coming back with another season of Seinfeld. Does anyone remember me?! I had the number one show! We were the number one network on television. Those were fun times. There was no YouTube. There was UsTube!"
