    For the question about the non-athletes who appeared on the show as themselves, David Letterman was not mentioned as an answer but he is acceptable – he appeared in the end-tag of the episode where George got smarter and Elaine got dumber from no sex and bumped Jerry from his show. Jerry never calls him “Dave” but he’s wearing a LATE SHOW jacket – it’s meant to be David Letterman.

    I think when the finale aired it started at something like 10 minutes before the hour. From what I remember, the clip show was not a full hour (i.e. started at 8pm and ended before 9pm). In fact, the finale’s length (as I prepare to watch it) is 55 minutes (without commercials) so with commercials it would be more than 1 hour, so that means it would have started about 8:50pm and ran until 10pm (pretty sure E/R was not delayed and started on time). That night was billed as a “2 hour finale” so they probably made the finale whatever length they wanted it to be and then adjusted the clip’s show length accordingly so the entire thing would total 2 hours.

    “Self-loathing nerd” – I hate when Mom and Dad (aka Rob and Akiva) fight.

    Also, I was surprised that Rob didn’t have intro/outro music for the clips, like in the RHAP clip shows. Considering every clip was of Rob and Akiva talking, and the non-clip parts of this episode were of Rob and Akiva talking, it would have helped to have some sort of music sting to let us know when the clips started/ended. Maybe a snippet of the Seinfeld theme music could have been used?
