By NEAL JUSTIN For nearly three decades, NBC's Thursday-night comedy block has lived up to its "must-see" billing. Half of the shows that have captured the Emmy for best comedy since 1983 have come from its ranks, including "Cheers,""The Cosby Show,""Friends,""Seinfeld" and, most recently, "30 Rock" and "The Office." But for all its efforts, the network has rarely been able to assemble four great programs at the same time, subjecting us die- hard regulars to mediocre fare that looks...

By Guy Adams He's unlikely to miss the money, but Bill Gates is coming to terms with the fact that neither Jerry Seinfeld, nor a $300m (160m) investment, can succeed in making him look cool. The world's richest man has axed Microsoft's bizarre new television commercial, in which he starred alongside the New York comedian, just two weeks after a disastrous launch, when it was described as one of the worst ads in history. Critics panned the sketch, in which Gates and Seinfeld awkwardly...
