Larry King Slept Through the 90s

Larry King forgot that Jerry Seinfeld signed off when he was on top

I've always been a fan of CNN's Larry King, but the host of "Larry King Live" has been making a lot of mistakes lately including calling his guests by the wrong name. Interviewing the living Beatles, he confused Ringo Starr for George Harrison and George Harrison for George Hamilton. Then last week, former CIA agent Valerie Plame-Wilson became "Flame Wilson." Larry King has admitted that he doesn't prepare for interviews and just wings it.

On his November 1st show, Larry King interviewed Jerry Seinfeld about his new movie "Bee Movie" in which Larry King makes a cameo appearance as "Bee Larry King." In what is now a famous exchange, Larry King asked Jerry Seinfeld if his TV show was cancelled when it went off the air in 1998. The transcript is available on the CNN website and here is a video clip:
