'Seinfeld'

Should TBS Have Pulled

Suicide Episode?

Almost a week after "Seinfeld" star Daniel Von Bargen attempted suicide by shooting himself in the head, an episode of the show entitled "The Suicide" -- during which Jerry Seinfeld jokes about people who try and commit suicide, but fail (see above) -- aired on TBS.

The episode originally aired in 1992 and Von Bargen, who played Mr. Kruger, didn't begin his stint on the show until years later. The episode aired again last night. TBS had no comment.

So we gotta ask ...

No one is going to pull all of the crack head jokes about Whitney,and she is gone.A site like TMZ should be the last to ask the question how they laughed @ her expense the second they came on the air.(HARVEY!)

Jewish comedians always can get away with Filth, Trash and Decadence == Hollywood sees to that, since they OWN and RUN everything there- Its been going on for ever-- They Own the Oscar BS-- More Jews win Oscars than anyone else!!!

All of these shows in syndication are now just showing a tight loop of the same episodes over and over. I doubt there is any human interaction in the programming, its just a cycle. So the episode showing was just bad timing and to pull it would have cost a few dollars of actual people involvement and they cant allow that.

If it was aired in 1992, it should be able to be aired now.
People commit suicide thwn and they commit suicide now. I don't understand why they would retroactively take it off the air. People need to stop being so sensitive.
