Jeers: Seems Like Old Times?

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander by Monty Brinton/CBS

Jeers to The New Adventures of Old Christine for blowing a Seinfeld reunion. It was great to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander together again — but if you blinked, you could've missed it. The ex-costars had only two brief scenes together, at the beginning and end of the CBS sitcom's third-season finale. Couldn't they have written a better (or at least bigger) role for Alexander than Louis-Dreyfus' gynecologist? I hate to say it, but this bit of stunt-casting was much ado about nothing. • For more Cheers & Jeers, check out the new vodcast.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

"Let's just say it's a good possibility," she said.Romano may also be coming back with his own TNT sitcom. Though he couldn't give many details, the show is "about men in mid-life. It's, 'Write what you know, and write what you cry about.' That's my philosophy," Romano said.Television funnywoman Estelle Harris, known mainly for her role as George's mom on Seinfeld, got to share some screen time with her former television son Jason Al... read more
