In Case You Need Another Reminder That Jerry Seinfeld Can Afford to Never Work Again, Here It Is

According to Time Warner, Seinfeld has earned $2.7 billion dollars since 1998, when it went off the air. $2.3 billion of that comes from reruns, $380 million from reruns on cable, and, on average, each of the 180 episodes has earned over $14 million. (Really makes the cast's long-ago contract dispute seem like fighting over pennies). Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David have an undisclosed stake in all of this cash. Whatever they're making, it is enough to make us wonder, yet again, Why on earth is Seinfeld doing The Marriage Ref? [NYP]
