Jerry Seinfeld has three reasons why the lawsuit accusing him of stealing Comedians in Cars is baseless
In court documents filed in response to Christian Charles' lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Seinfeld notes that Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee debuted in 2012, outside the three-year statute of limitations for copyright claims. He also points out that Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has too generic a premise to claim ownership, pointing to similar shows like Carpool Karaoke and Jay Leno's Garage. Finally, Seinfeld notes that he filed the copyright for his pilot episode 10 days before Charles filed his own copyright for Comedians in Cars Going for Coffee.

Louis CK’s episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was initially omitted when the web series joined Netflix
Only 58 of the 60 episodes of the Jerry Seinfeld web series made the jump from Crackle to Netflix on Jan. 5 — and many of the episodes were edited to remove references to “Crackle." As Decider notes, the Louis CK episode was mysteriously missing. But now it has been "quietly added" to the collection. Netflix hasn’t explained the initial omission. Now, the only missing episode is the “George Costanza”/Jason Alexander episode, which Netflix doesn’t have the rights for because it aired on Fox during halftime of the Super Bowl.

Why Conan’s “boring” car ride with Tom Cruise was so hilarious
Conan O’Brien and Tom Cruise poked fun at car-based programming like Carpool Karaoke and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with their dull, 11-minute segment. “It’s an aggressively boring clip that goes on for way too long, which is exactly what makes it so funny,” says Constance Grady. “If Carpool Karaoke exists in a mystical fantasy world where every car ride is the greatest road trip montage ever filmed, full of beautiful people belting out their favorite songs in their gorgeous professional-musician voices while the wind blows through their hair, then Conan’s ‘just drive’ segment exists in the nightmare world of the worst-case-scenario road trip.”
