Did Jerry Seinfeld regret 'Seinfeld?'

Jerry Seinfeld is best known for his role

Jerry Seinfeld is best known for his role as himself in the eight-year long "Seinfeld" series. Although most of his gigs include appearances on TV shows, Seinfeld has arguably not fizzled out, and we'll tell you why. According to Forbes, the show "still generates substantial ad revenue for cable." (Credit: AP)

A new series called “Inside Comedy” bows on Showtime Thursday and one of the inaugural guests is Jerry Seinfeld, who tells host David Steinberg that he was deeply uncomfortable with “Seinfeld's” success. Says he, success is a very “dangerous” thing for a comic, while the term “comedy star” is mutually exclusive.  

Watch and you begin to think Jerry regretted the whole ride. And: Don Rickles has an interesting story about Frank Sinatra. Check 'em out.
