1. The infamous Jerry Seinfeld interview
Jerry Seinfeld appeared for an interview with Larry King and in one of the most controversial segments, became angry with the host. They were discussing his television series “Seinfeld.” King asked all of the right questions including the length of the series, to which Seinfeld responded that it was a nine-year run with 180 episodes. It is when King innocently asked if the series was cancelled or if Jerry had just given it up that the problems started. Seinfeld was obviously upset as he went on a tirade about it. He emphatically stated that he was the one that called it quits and the show was not ‘cancelled.’ Although a few days later Seinfeld claimed that he was not upset, it was obvious that he felt extremely defensive and his words were slurring as though he had been drinking.
2. “What Dan Bilzerian really thinks of women | Larry King Now”
