Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee stops by the White House to pick up President Obama

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Season 7 Premieres Dec. 30 @11:30 PM
It’s time for another season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee already, and the new promo, released Monday, shows that host Jerry Seinfeld’s impressive lineup of guest stars. Season seven will kick off with none other than President Barack Obama, with Seinfeld dropping by the White House.

Over the course of its six episodes, season seven will also feature Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Gary Shandling, Kathleen Madigan, and Sebastian Maniscalco, along with a host of interesting automobiles. Seinfeld and his guests will go cruising and stop for coffee, plus other spontaneous side trips. The promo shows Ferrell and Seinfeld playing at a park as well as an incident in which a car appears to have broken down.

To pick up the president, Seinfeld drove a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe, according to Deadline. The episode was filmed at famous first house earlier in December, so it sounds like the comedian and the commander-in-chief may not have actually left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If that’s the case, it makes sense; taking the show on the road would presumably be a Secret Service nightmare.

While Seinfeld and his show are undeniably a draw, the fact that Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee features the likes of the POTUS is indicative of the fact that Crackle, the Sony-owned streamer that hosts the show, is getting bigger. (The service is also home to Dennis Quaid’s The Art of More, a scripted series renewed for its second season earlier this month.) As much as Obama has been hitting the TV circuit more frequently as his final term winds down, his appearances have typically been on major networks, such as HBO’s Vice prison special, which aired in September, and his recent episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls on NBC.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season seven premieres on December 30, at 11:30 p.m.

Where to watch Magic Mike’s Last Dance
Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek stand in a theatre lobby together in Magic Mike's Last Dance.

In 2012, the world of male stripping took center stage in Magic Mike. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Magic Mike stars Channing Tatum as Mike Lane, an aspiring entrepreneur who works odd jobs as a handyman during the day. At night, Mike comes alive as a male stripper, wowing the club with his innate charm and attractive dance moves. With a budget of $7 million, Magic Mike became an instant hit, grossing over $167 million worldwide. The film spawned a 2015 sequel, Magic Mike XXL, which also became a box-office success, grossing $122 million against a $12 million budget.

To complete the trilogy, Tatum graced the stage as Mike Lane one final time in Magic Mike's Last Dance. Originally supposed to be released exclusively to streaming, Warner Bros. opted to give the third film a theatrical release in February 2023. While the film struggled in theaters (it only grossed $57 million), Magic Mike's Last Dance will now get the chance to find another audience on streaming.

The Digital Trends guide to FAST streaming services
Amazon Freevee.

When you talk about the best streaming services, you typically talk about video-on-demand (VOD) services like Netflix. Or Disney+. Or Amazon Prime Video. Or Hulu. And for good reason — they have a ton of paying subscribers. Netflix alone is closing in on a quarter-billion. Disney+ is about halfway there.

And while the numbers drop off a good bit from there, another flavor of streaming should constitute a good bit of the discussion. FAST services — that's the industry acronym for free advertising-based streaming television — continue to grow both in numbers and in popularity. Think of FAST like the streaming version of broadcast TV, or your cable box. Shows are on at the same time for everyone, and everyone is watching the same thing, with ads. Only unlike YouTube TV or Hulu With Live TV, you don't have to pay anything upfront. It's all supported by advertising — you just don't get the "good" channels like you will on the paid services.
