Seinfeld doesn’t think much of Kimmel’s gesture of showing a rerun on Dave’s final night, comparing it to eating half a cupcake. “Why not put up a test pattern if you really want to respect the guy?” Seinfeld tells Access Hollywood. “I think TV Land put up a test pattern on the night of my (‘Seinfeld’) finale out of respect. That was a very nice gesture.”

True Detective dropped the “secret occult history” stuff from Season 2
“There’s definitely bad men and hard women,” says creator Nic Pizzolatto, “but no secret occult history of the U.S. transportation system (as he earlier promised). That was a comment from very early in the process, and something I ended up discarding in favor of closer character work and a more grounded crime story. The complexity of the historical conspiracy first conceived detracted from the characters and their reality, I felt, and those characters are ultimately what have to shape the world and story. So I moved away from that.”
