Lisa Kudrow Says Jerry Seinfeld Took Some Credit For The Success Of ‘Friends’

Jerry Seinfeld was all too comfortable to take some credit score for the success of “Friends,” in accordance with an anecdote from Lisa Kudrow. Fortunately, Kudrow appears to agree with the comic.

Kudrow opened up about sharing time with the opposite iconic collection of the ’90s, and instructed The Every day Beast in an interview printed Wednesday that she didn’t really feel aggressive “at all” with “Seinfeld.” The truth is, she defined how the collection truly helped increase scores and contribute to the unbelievable success of “Friends.”

“Not to take anything away from the writing on ‘Friends,’ or the cast, or how good ‘Friends’ really was, but the first season our ratings were just fine,” Kudrow mentioned.

“We held onto enough of [sitcom] ‘Mad About You’ and starting building, but it was in the summer when we were in reruns after ‘Seinfeld,’ where ‘Seinfeld’ was our lead-in, where we exploded,” she added, earlier than recalling an anecdote that screams Seinfeld.

“I remember going to some party and Jerry Seinfeld was there, and I said, ‘Hi,’ and he said, ‘You’re welcome,’” Kudrow mentioned. “I said, ‘Why, thank you … what?’” And he mentioned, ‘You’re on after us in the summertime, and also you’re welcome.’ And I mentioned, ‘That’s precisely proper. Thanks.’”

However not like “Friends,” which scored large with its HBO Max reunion in 2021, “Seinfeld” continues to be holding off on getting the solid collectively ― for now.

When the interviewer on the time advised the “Seinfeld” solid and crew may put collectively one thing like “Friends” did for his or her reunion particular, the comic joked, “I don’t think you win Emmys for that stuff.”
