LOS ANGELES - The curse of the Jerry Seinfeld cast continues as Mr. Seinfeld's latest offering The Marriage Ref has been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, intentional grounding, encroachment, and failure to be funny.
The network of the peacock has cancelled the show after only one week. Critics from Bangor, Maine, to Bakersfield, California have panned the show as being a total and complete mess.
Highly respected television critics said that they truly felt embarrassed for the three celebrities who appeared on the first show Jerry Seinfeld, Kelly Ripa, and Alec Baldwin.
It is truly amazing how the 'confused trio' spent more time laughing at what was going on between themselves than the stupid remarks of the dysfunctional couples on the screen. It was almost as if the viewer was watching a live 'laugh track' and a cheap 'laugh track' at that.
It was a total waste of time. And as Detroit critic Yudell Washington said, "Man, I could have spent my time removing graffiti from my ex-wife's trailer during a blinding snowstorm and I would have had a much better time."
Another critic Troy Fizzbox of Philadelphia compared watching the horrible show to going to the dentist and having a wisdom tooth removed...through one of your ears.
It was pitiful, it was pathetic, and it was pure unadulterated baby cereal was the way TV Clickerworld Magazine's Carrie Landscapelli put it.
She went on to say that the host Tom Papa (pronounced PAB-Lum) who also serves as the referee strangely sounds 98% like Jerry Seinfeld, with his boring sing-song, nasally whining delivery.
NBC definitely struck out on this prime time loser and dozens of TV critics are asking if the three peacock letters stand for New Boring Crapola. Hopefully they can salvage the time slot by replacing it with reruns of I Dream of Jeanie, Survivor: Dusty Nights in Baghdad, or UpChuck - The For Real Biggest Loser.
For more on this show, never mind, you need not even bother because the goose (or actually peacock) has been cooked.
In other news. Vice-President Joe Biden told Larry King that last week he did not go to his White House office once. Biden laughed and remarked that no one even noticed.
