Larry asked, “You gave it up, right? You canceled them, they didn’t cancel you.” Jerry responded, “You’re not aware of this? You think I got canceled? Are you under the impression I got canceled? I thought it was pretty well-documented. Is this still CNN? [When] I went off the air I was the number-one show on television, Larry. Do you know who I am?”
Larry joked back, “Jewish guy. Brooklyn.” Jerry said, “The ‘canceled’ bit was just me having fun with his little mistake. Nothing more. Or less.”
