Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld has revealed the television show he thinks he had the “greatest final moment” ever.

Speaking with GQ, the comedian and actor, 69, spoke about his recent appearance in the series finale of HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm alongside Seinfeld co-creator Larry David.

He also reflected on the ending of his own series, Seinfeld, which ran from 1989 to 1998, and became one of the most popular television shows of all time.

He went onto explain how he, David, and Jeff Schaffer, who worked on several episodes of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, were discussing what they believed to be “great” television show finales.

Seinfeld shared that his choice was the period drama Mad Men. Starring Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss, the series ran from 2007 to 2015 and won a total of 16 Emmys and five Golden Globes.

He said: “I feel Mad Men was the greatest … So satisfying. So funny.”

He spoke about other TV show endings, saying: “A lot of people like the Bob Newhart one. Mary Tyler Moore was okay,” but he reiterated: “I think Mad Men was the greatest final moment of a series I’ve ever seen.”

The Seinfeld finale was watched by 76 million viewers, becoming the fourth-most watched overall television series finale. However, it received mixed reviews, mainly for its controversial ending of having the main cast end up in jail at the show’s conclusion.

Seinfeld admitted to GQ that the finale bothered him “a little bit” but added: “I don’t believe in regret.”

He explained:  “I think it’s arrogant to think you could have done something different. You couldn’t. That’s why you did what you did.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Seinfeld spoke about his upcoming Netflix film Unfrosted and how he believes the film business is “over”.
