When Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, rolled onto our streaming screens, little did we know that the once king, of a ‘show about nothing’ had pitched his new show about coffee and cars to many, who just didn’t get it, including the brand Starbucks. However, online distributor of original web shows Crackle did and so did presenting sponsor, Acura.
Eight seasons since its original 2012 airing, the American comedian, Jerry Seinfeld – who invites other comedians for a cup of coffee and a ride along in a classic car – finds the show receiving a third Emmy nomination a first in the variety talk series category.
As Crackles makes an appearance among Netflix’ 54 nominations, the web category is a contender to take seriously. On Emmy night, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will see how it fares among its nominated contemporaries.
- Jimmy Kimmel Live
- Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
- The Late Late Show with James Corden
- Real Time with Bill Maher
- The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
