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.

Jerry Seinfeld talks Steve Bannon, and how he sometimes regrets the Seinfeld series finale
In an interview Saturday at the New Yorker Festival, Seinfeld said he had no idea that the former Trump advisor and current Breitbart boss Bannon made money off Seinfeld. "I mean there are dozens and dozens of investors and people you don't know about," he said. As for the series finale, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in May, Seinfeld said: “I sometimes think we really shouldn’t have even done it. There was a lot of pressure on us at that time to do one big last show, but big is always bad in comedy.”

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.”

On Netflix’s Jerry Before Seinfeld, the retro humor works — until it doesn’t
Jerry Seinfeld’s nostalgic comedy special is “bespoke comedy, perfectly tailored for Seinfeld to deliver,” says Kevin Fallon. “Only, now that he can afford the finest designer tuxedos, it’s disappointing to see him recycling bargain Brooks Brothers material. All these years later, and all that money richer, Seinfeld is still doing comedy about nothing. The question is whether that still works today when <i>everything, even Jerry Seinfeld jokes, is mandated to stand for something.”
