LOS ANGELES - Ian Abercrombie, 77, the British character actor who played Elaine's demanding boss, Mr. Pitt, on "Seinfeld," died Thursday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said his friend Cathy Lind Hayes. He suffered complications of kidney failure. As the eccentric Justin Pitt, Abercrombie appeared in seven episodes opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Elaine Benes in the high-rated sit-com. "I was a pain in the neck. I was a hypochondriac. I was many things, and I just made her life so miserable," Abercrombie said in a 1998 CNN interview.

A Wisconsin appeals court yesterday reversed a $25 million jury award to a Miller Brewing Co. executive who was fired after a coworker complained that he had harassed her by discussing a racy episode of Seinfeld. Jerold Mackenzie was fired in 1993 for "poor managerial judgment" five days after recounting a scene in which Seinfeld's title character tried to remember a girlfriend's name that rhymed with a part of the female anatomy. Mackenzie then sued, alleging that being fired for merely discussing the episode was unfair and that Miller executives had been looking for an excuse to fire him from his $95,000-a-year management job. The 1997 jury award of $25 million came after Mackenzie, now 56, argued that the company had downgraded his position 10 years earlier without notifying him and that by the time he was fired he was too old to find comparable employment elsewhere.

Seinfeld has given us more than curmudgeonly characters, complex plots, and the indelible memory of Mr. Costanza in a "manssiere. " It has given us a language - a rich stew of neologisms, catch-phrases and of-the-moment slang. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) Want to master the domain of Sein language? Read on. Atomic wedgie. Humiliation that the young George Costanza endured in high school. Bosco. George's ATM code, which he refused to reveal - not even to save a dying man.

The people at Entertainment Weekly have been watching lots of Seinfeld episodes and keeping score. In what's billed as "The Ultimate Seinfeld Viewers Guide," the magazine has amassed a ton of trivia about the show. For instance, Jerry and company have gathered at Monk's Cafe 229 times, Kramer has made 252 of those bizarre entrances into Jerry's apartment, and the Seinfeld refrigerator has been opened 103 times. There have been 28 scenes in either a doctor's office or a hospital, and 95 in a car, but only eight on subways and one on a bus. There have been 11 references to Hitler or Nazis, and 10 to the Kennedy family.

Come back, Elaine! We miss you. And we miss hearing you bad-mouthing all your friends every week on Seinfeld. OK, you've been off minding your kids for two years, but isn't all that diaper duty and meal-planning blunting your carbon-steel tongue? Julia Louis-Dreyfus, whose tongue seems as soft as a marshmallow on this hot and sunny Los Angeles day, couldn't care less. "It's fabulous to be a full-time mom," she says. She has two sons, Henry, 7, and Charles, 2, with TV producer husband Brad Hall.

The first three words of Joel Wingard's new college textbook ask, "What is literature?" His answer, which takes 1,756 pages, might seem a little unusual. Under drama, for instance, you'll find Sophocles, Shakespeare - and Seinfeld. The lyrics of a Tom Petty song, "Mary Jane's Last Dance," are praised for their narrative value. Short stories cited are by such authors as Anne Tyler and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The essay section features the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham City Jail.

When everybody is done with Seinfeld, CBS hopes Everybody Loves Raymond. First, however, people have to meet Raymond, as in Ray Romano, the star of the critically praised CBS sitcom based on his family-focused stand-up comedy act. Introductions are taking place, gradually. Romano's show, CBS's top-rated sitcom in the latest Nielsen ratings report, is now ending its second season. It has been thriving this year on Mondays, where it ranks 35th in the Nielsen ratings and often beats the competition.

One of the best things that could happen to TV this fall would be for JJ DiMeo to become just another sitcom character. The oldest child on ABC's Speechless , which premieres Sept. 21 between The Goldbergs and Modern Family (and is previewing early on ABC.com ), JJ is, like many TV teens, good-looking and a bit of a smart-ass. Like his mother, Maya (Minnie Driver), he challenges authority. Including hers. And like Micah Fowler ( Labor Day ), the actor who plays him, JJ has cerebral palsy.

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.

Seinfeld on autism spectrum Jerry Seinfeld 's sitcom character isn't the most socially adept person, but was he really autistic?
