Back when David Letterman's position for The Tonight Show hadn't been given to Stephen Colbert, a lot of people thought Jerry Seinfeld was going to take over, and go back to making cable television a better place - though I am pretty stoked to see Colbert at the helm. And although Jerry didn’t get the job, he proved on Friday’s Late Show With David Letterman that he'd most likely excel at it, and bring in a lot of new viewers.

Sitting in Letterman’s chair, and putting the late night host in the hot seat, Seinfeld asked him all the questions you've been yearing to ask yourself. When it came to Letterman announcing he’d be leaving the show, Seinfeld asked, “Why is this a good idea?”

The two also teased each other, with Letterman saying “How am I possibly going to be entertaining with this [comedy] giant looming to my left?” To which Seinfeld added, “With a bad attitude, also!”

The pair also spoke about Seinfeld’s hilarious show, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, which Letterman said is, “genius, because you can do it for the next two years, or the next ten years. It doesn’t make a difference.” He also admitted he’s a big fan of the show.

Wrapping the show up was a hilarious performance from Seinfeld, who performed the original stand-up routine he performed on his first appearance on Late Night With David Letterman.

You can see Seinfeld’s stand-up performance below.
