They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

We already knew that Garry called 911 and was found unconscious when paramedics arrived at his home, but we didn't know the actor showed physical signs of concern the night before his death.
While the late actor knew about his health problems, as he opened up to fellow comedian Jerry Seinfeld on Comedians In Cars Grabbing Coffee, he apparently had some serious concerns Wednesday night and even made plans to go to the ER.
Sources close Shandling revealed to TMZ that on Wednesday, the actor
This is incredibly eerie!
As we reported, revered comedian Garry Shandling died from a heart attack at the age of 66.
Earlier this year, the star of The Larry Sanders Show did an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee where the two drove around Los Angeles in a 1979 Porsche 930.
In the segment, the legendary actor talks about his declining health, the death of his friend Robin Williams, and his own funeral.
What's even more unfortunate is that the episode is called "It's Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive." Yikes!
In the clip, the stand-up talks openly about his various ailments.
Jerry Seinfeld just cleaned out his garage in a major way!
The Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee host sold 17 of his collectible cars over the weekend — and managed to bring in $22,244,500 in the process!
The highest seller? The 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder that went for $5,335,000!
Chump change, are we right??
The 61-year-old actor made an appearance at the auction house, which certainly helped get the crowd excited to bid.
The comedian previously said that he loved his cars but time and space are forcing him to sell:
"[T]he reason I wanted to bid these cars farewell in this way is really just to see the look of excitement on the faces of the next owners who I know will be out of their minds with joy that they are going to get to experience them."
What other hot rods found new homes?
The list includes: a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK, which sold for $2,860,000; a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR, $2,310,000; a 1990 Porsche 962C, $1,650,000; a 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, $1,540,000; a 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau, $1,017,500; a 1998 Porsche 993 3.8 Cup RSR, $935,000; and a 1963 Porsche 356 B 2000 GS/GT Carrera 2 Coupe, which went for $825,000.
Not to mention the 1960 VW Beetle that went for $121,000.
There was one car leftover, though: a non-drivable Carrera GT concept car. Apparently it's only one of two in the whole world — but it didn't make the minimum of $1,500,000.
Worth a shot!
Sounds like a pretty successful weekend to us!

After all these years, we finally have a reunion episode of Seinfeld — thanks to the star of That 70s Show!
Thanks to the seventh season of Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, which centers around a fictional Seinfeld comeback, Topher was able to get enough footage and sound of Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, etc. to create a version of the reunion that never was.
And it's… kind of about nothing…
We guess he did a good job! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the vid — and his intro (below)!
Is Steve Martin going back to his roots!?
The comedic legend surprised the audience at New York's Beacon Theatre on Thursday when he served as the warm-up act for Jerry Seinfeld's new monthly show!
Though his set was short, it was also historic — because it marked Martin's first time performing standup in 35 years!
The funnyman's last standup performance was back in 1981, when he walked away from the mic despite being one of the top stand up comedians in the country.
And to kick off his 10-minute set on Thursday, the 70-year-old addressed why he returned to the stage after such a long hiatus, quipping:
Doing what he does best!
Seinfeld is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time.
While we didn't get a full comedy special from the comedian, Seinfeld did perform a HIGHlarious tight five where he ranted about donut holes, buffets, and Swanson meals.
CH-ch-check out the legendary comic return to his comedic roots as he reminds us he is still as funny as ever (below)!
What a good sport!
Season Seven of Jerry Seinfeld's hilarious webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee kicked off on Wednesday, and in honor of the premiere they managed to wrangle a pretty huge get.
As in, the leader of the free world himself, President Barack Obama!
Barack may not be a comedian by trade, but he's made quite a few one-liners during his presidency, so we think he's more than qualified to take part in the Crackle show.
Specifically, the pair was not allowed to leave the White House premises on account of safety! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the most historic episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee ever (below)!!!
