Flicking through the channels for post-holiday entertainment tonight, you'll come across the sixth-season premiere of In Performance at the White House (Channel 12, 9 p.m.) and a sitcom pilot starring comedian Jerry Seinfeld, The Seinfeld Chronicles (Channel 3, 9:30 p.m.). In Performance at the White House is a sort of televised command- performance from the East Room for the President and a group of guests. The tradition began during the Carter administration, and tonight marks the first In Performance during George Bush's presidency.

This Jerry Seinfeld is a very funny fellow. Which Jerry Seinfeld? The one starring in NBC's aptly titled "Seinfeld," one of a handful of new shows the networks will use to sweeten the long drought of summer. A sample edition aired under the title of "The Seinfeld Chronicles" last year. "Seinfeld" airs on four consecutive Thursday nights, right after "Cheers," beginning 9:30 tonight on Channel 3. Jerry Seinfeld has been a frequent visitor to the Johnny Carson and David Letterman shows for more than a decade.

Donald Trump's success as a presidential candidate is both surprising and easily explained. He's questioned the heroism of a former POW and standard bearer of his own party. Fought Fox News and its most ascendant star, including questioning her menstrual cycle. Picked a fight with the pope over immigration. Mocked a disabled reporter. Incorrectly cited a Bible verse while courting evangelical Christians. Promised to be an honest broker in the Middle East instead of reflexively siding with Israel.

Say it ain't so, Seinfeld. Say that the reports were all wrong, and the strongest, funniest sitcom of the '90s won't end this season. What's America to do Thursday nights without the self-centered bickering of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer? These superficial, unadmirable New Yorkers somehow wormed their way into America's heart. Kramer, the windblown bon vivant with an eye for the ladies and the other eye on his next scheme. George, a loser's loser and a lousy liar. Elaine, with her so-so jobs and terminal romances.

Thirty million regular viewers of the sitcom Seinfeld won't soon get over the news that the show is closing at the end of this season. Day-to-day existence will never be the same without the weekly exploits of Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Elaine Benes and Cosmo Kramer. By playing himself, Jerry Seinfeld taught us that something about nothing could be hilarious and thought-provoking in the same instant of laughter. We learned that the ordinary and downright mundane were freighted with extraordinary comic potential - that zany faux pas lurked in every imaginable circumstance.

About 10 years ago, a focus group watching the pilot of what was to become "Seinfeld" basically told NBC not to waste its money on the program. If NBC had listened, how big a mistake would that have been? Ohhhhh, about $2.5 billion - give or take a few hundred mil. That's how much the now nine-year-old TV classic has generated through the years for all involved, which, besides NBC, includes producer Castle Rock, series star Jerry Seinfeld and his co-creator, Larry David, and the supporting cast.

Jerry Seinfeld may have the most-watched sitcom on network TV, but in reruns, it's Tim Allen's "Home Improvement" that reels in the viewers. Despite an onslaught of media attention, reruns of "Seinfeld" generally draw a smaller audience than the repeats of "Home Improvement," according to an analysis of Nielsen ratings for the 1997-98 season. That difference, in part, is the result of stations double-running "Home Improvement," while they are contractually limited to only one "Seinfeld" a day. Based on Nielsen's weekly syndication ratings, which factor in the multiple telecasts, "Home Improvement" has beaten "Seinfeld" in all but one week, where the shows tied.

Seinfeld on autism spectrum Jerry Seinfeld 's sitcom character isn't the most socially adept person, but was he really autistic? The comedian tells NBC's Brian Williams that in real life he may suffer from a mild form of autism. "I think, on a very drawn-out scale, I think I'm on the [autism disorders] spectrum. " For one thing, he says, "basic social engagement is really a struggle. " Seinfeld, 60, who stars in the Web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee , says, "I'm very literal.

"Sweetie," Don Rickles says, welcoming us to his sumptuous Spanish villa near Beverly Hills. "Can I get anything for you, dear?" This is the comedian known as the Merchant of Venom, the Insult King from Queens, Mr. Warmth (as in precisely the opposite). But not once in a convivial afternoon will he lob an insult, the sort he hurls at friends and fans alike, the latter paying handsomely for a dose of Rickles ridicule. At one point, he takes our left hand, bows his bullet head, and, in the custom of an Old World courtier, bestows a kiss.

NEARLY 30 years ago, the writer Art Buchwald sued the makers of Eddie Murphy 's Coming to America " over his too-small share of what everyone believed was a very profitable film. The studio contended the film had lost money. Thus continued a long running joke about Hollywood accounting practices. Yesterday, deadline.com reported that Rebel Entertainment Partners had filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against CBS over the syndicated legal shows Judge Judy and Hot Bench . Rebel is the talent agency that packaged Judge Judy more than 20 years ago. Rebel claims it has been denied contractually obligated payments since 2010 because Judge Judy has been "losing money.

During a recent interview Drew Carey, the former sitcom star, was asked why he doesn't do stand-up anymore. "It's too much heavy lifting," Carey admitted. There are former stand-ups who, like Carey, graduated to TV and never looked back, and then there are such entertainers as Jerry Seinfeld, who performed over the weekend at the sold-out Borgata. Seinfeld, 61, capped his hour-plus concert noting that he felt compelled to return to stand-up after his nine-season Seinfeld run. But the explanation was superfluous.

IF YOU'RE looking to make some money, becoming a surgeon was a good way to go. But with health-care costs out of control and malpractice insurance through the roof, being a surgeon may still be better than being a fast-food worker, but the real money is in playing a surgeon on a hit TV show. Now that Patrick Dempsey is splitting with both "Grey's Anatomy" and his wife, Jillian Fink , the couple are putting their Frank Gehry -designed Malibu home on the market.

IF YOU'RE WALKING along the Las Vegas strip tomorrow night and the lights dim, don't panic. It's just a thoughtful tribute honoring the late Jerry Tarkanian, the former head coach of UNLV who died last Wednesday at age 84. According to the Associated Press, the tribute will take place at 10:30 following the Boise State at UNLV game. The gesture puts Tarkanian in good company. Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Elvis Presley and Ronald Reagan are among those who have had lights dimmed on the Strip after their deaths.
