last time i checked, seinfeld was wildly popular. at the time of its season finale, it got the highest ratings of any show ever. passions on the other hand was so shitty that it got moved to a special channel on direct TV in lieu of cancellation, and they eventually had to give it up because no one was watching.

so let's not compare one of the greatest television shows of all time to passions. there is no comparison, period. i liked passions, but GMAB. jer and larry david aren't even in the same ballpark when it comes to talented writing.
luv, I'm not trying to compare writing styles. Success isn't measured, frankly, by product. It's longevity and bottom line. If the show met its bottom line for nine years, I don't sneeze at that.

FYI: TV Guide named JER in 2001 one of TV's MVPs. The only daytime writer among David E. Kelley and others. So, maybe not Larry david, but.... :D
