Is it Jerry Seinfeld's fault that Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has "finally run out of gas"?

"What’s next in lazy, car-based, non-comedy?” Zach Galifianakis asked teasingly to Seinfeld on his Comedians in Cars episode. But Galifianakis was asking a pretty good question. When it premiered in 2012, Comedians in Cars featured relaxed and impromptu conversations where insight and promotion weren't the goal, says Hank Stuever. "Now," says Stuever, "the show plays as if Seinfeld has belatedly realized he’s part of a terrible surplus of chitchat, a narcissistic loop of elite gab. A project once meant to illuminate the mutual regard comedians have for one another now plays like one more task they add to their list of appearances on multiple platforms, from the full-glam, late-night appearance to lowly garage-set podcast. In expensive, collectible cars that mainly emphasize the wealth gap between Seinfeld and the audience, celebrities are hopping in with Jerry and finding they have nothing much to say anymore. They’re talked-out. The current season features a surprising degree of disconnect and even boredom with the idea — one dud ride after another: Ellen DeGeneres looks exhausted, almost as if she had the date wrong on her calendar but decided to go ahead and get it over with. John Mulaney, usually so quick on the draw, seems more interested in shopping for a hallway rug than engaging in any sharp interplay with Seinfeld."

Portia de Rossi says she's done with acting after Arrested Development Season 5
The actress tells wife Ellen DeGeneres she actually decided to quit acting 18 months ago after Shonda Rhimes wrote her off Scandal. But Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz convinced her to do Season 5 of the Netflix series. “I called Mitch Hurwitz, who’s the creator of Arrested Development and I said, ‘If there is a season 5, I won’t be doing it because I quit acting. And he seemed really understanding and he totally got it," de Rossi recalls. "We had a great conversation, and then he wrote me into five episodes. Don’t know how it happened, but yes, I am on Season 5.” Ellen says de Rossi is quitting acting because she didn't like doing press and talk show interviews. De Rossi, who turned 45 in January, adds: “I was approaching 45 and I just kind of … was wondering is there something that I could tackle now that I’ve never done before that would be really challenging and different. I kind of knew what acting would look like for me for the next 10, 20 years, so I decided to quit and start a business."
