Would you want Jerry Seinfeld to give you marital advice? He's banking on it, as he readies the premiere of his new primetime show, "The Marriage Ref" for NBC (airing this Thursday at 10 PM).
Seinfeld sat down with "Extra" to chat about the show and how he came up with the idea. "I was having an argument with my wife and I just thought this is just... if there was one third person here this could end right now. Any reasonable person would come in and see that I'm right and she's wrong," said Jerry.
"Extra" has learned what star power will be joining funnyman Jerry Seinfeld on his new show, "The Marriage Ref!"

Larry David reunited the cast of "Seinfeld" for an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" -- and he tells "Extra" that the show will touch on Michael Richards' comedy club blowup.
"He wanted to," David explained when asked if Richards felt comfortable addressing the drama onscreen. "He made a terrible mistake." David added that Richards deserves a second chance after being shunned in Tinseltown the past three years.
The show's star, Jerry Seinfeld, tells "Extra" that he believes that the reunion episodes will please fans. "It's a very good show. I think the audience will like it."
"Curb Your Enthusiam" premieres Sunday night on HBO.
