"No Seinfeld For You!"

Get Out!

That (minus the shoving) pretty much sums up my reaction to the news that WLUK is pulling an episode of "Seinfeld" at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday because New York Giants Quarterback Eli Manning enjoys reruns of the show. The thought from general manager Jay Zollar is that they don't want Manning to feel too comfortable in the Frozen Tundra before Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

We here at Channel Surfing are not exactly immune to the green-and-gold madness sweeping through the area, and, hey, it's more entertaining than yet another silly bet on the outcome of the game between the mayors, senators, governors or secretaries of state involving cheese or vegetables. But, come on, why couldn't Manning's favorite show be, I dunno, "Judge Mathis?"

Plus, if Eli's room has cable - which I suspect it will - he'll still be able to catch not one, but two back-to-back episodes of the show about nothing on TBS at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Oh, sweet irony.

Wow ... I can't believe these are the crucial decisions executives are paid tens of thousands of dollars to make. I'm pretty close to positive that deciding whether to push the cinnamon raison or sesame led to more significant consequences for Kramer while employed at H&H Bagels than letting Seinfeld run on Saturday would yield.

We're already known as a city where there is nothing to do. Now you take away the show about nothing in the city where there's nothing to do. Wait, I just confused myself.

If i had to pick between Eli watching Seinfeld or reading his playbook, I think I'd choose the rerun.
