Seinfeld, Fallon, and Kimmel Lead This Week’s Top 5 Viral TV Clips on 5by

5by
In this week’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery and messaging platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.
For background on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

Netflix released the House of Cards season 3 teaser, and even though it’s only 12 seconds long, the powerful Frank Underwood characteristically breaks the 4th wall, giving us an air date for those HoC fans, eagerly awaiting Frank’s return. Jerry Seinfeld’s new season of Comedians in Cats Getting Coffee kicked off this week with Youtube sensation Miranda Sings. The full episode was released on Miranda’s Youtube channel, breaking the 500,000 view mark in a matter of days.

Jimmy Kimmel teamed up with The Killers for their annual ritual of creating a new Christmas Tune. ‘Joel the Lump of Coal’ may be the next ‘White Christmas’ (probably not, but still… well done). Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams slow Jam the news this week, making you realize that if all news was done like this, you’d probably pay more attention to what was going on in the world.

Finally, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were revealed as this year’s Golden Globe hosts for the third year in a row. If you can’t remember their hosting brilliance, the NBC clip showcases their talent for poking fun at fellow celebs.

Veteran comedians shined this week on 5by’s TV channel, with Jerry Seinfeld gearing up for a new season of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ and Jim Carrey prepping for another stint as SNL host. For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

Jim Carrey is up to his old shenanigans in this week’s SNL promo, and we couldn’t be happier. Bring on the Ace Ventura. Jerry Seinfeld has begun promoting season 5 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and Michael Richards is there to help out. Always great to see these two reunite. John Oliver shines light on the uncomfortably awful circumstances around immigration for translators aiding America.

Halo released the official trailer for their new series ‘Nightfall’, to be released on Xbox One. The first episode, directed by Battlestar Galactica’s Sergio Mimica, will be shown on November 10th.
Finally, a clip from the latest Simpsons Halloween special, breaks new viral ground and racked up over 10 million views in under a week.

Seinfeld Participates in Facebook Q&A to Promote ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

comedians-in-cars-getting-coffee-597x325Jerry Seinfeld’s eponymous show ended in 1998, and, “yada,yada, yada” he now stars in one of the most successful web series of all time.

To promote ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ (CICGC), Seinfeld dropped by Facebook’s New York office last week to take part in a Q&A with fans on the CICGC page. In January, he did a very successful Reddit AMA. During the Facebook Q&A, he answered fan questions about his first car, road rage, and his sneaker collection, among others.

When asked whether he “enjoyed working with Crackle more than going through a traditional network,” Seinfeld replied: “Yes, Crackle has been heaven for us. They only support and never interfere and that is an artists dream.”

Showrunners and actors are expressing this sentiment more and more since Netflix introduced its paradigm-shifting ‘House of Cards.’ Of course, ‘House of Cards’ is not a web series, but it can certainly be attributed with opening the flood gates for successful examples of original content outside of linear.

Below is a selection of Seinfeld’s best answers from the Q&A, including a hint that hit guests may be returning in the future and that ‘Napolean Dynamite’ is his favorite comedy movie of the past 15 years. Read more

Seinfeld enters the social TV conversation via Reddit AMA
