Watch: Jerry Seinfeld compares his sitcom to Sex and the City

When you think about it, Seinfeld is a lot like Sex and the City: they're both about a clique of neurotic singletons, they're both set in Manhattan, they both premiered in the '90s.

Jerry Seinfeld himself has noticed the connection, pointing out to Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall that her infamous character, sex-having-a-lot-of-it publicist Samantha Jones, is more or less the equivalent of Seinfeld's eccentric neighbour Kramer (Michael Richards).

"I always felt like there was a certain similarity, and I mean this in a good way," said Jerry during his recent guest-hosting stint on the US breakfast show Live with Kelly, where Kim was appearing.

"Sarah Jessica [Parker] and I were kind of like the hub of the wheel," Jerry explained to her, "and then you had these other eccentric characters, and you [Kim] were kind of the Kramer of the show."

"You're right!" laughed Kim, happily accepting the comparison.

That leaves Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis — aka Sex and the City's Miranda and Charlotte — to fight over which one gets to be the George and which one gets to be the Elaine (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus)...
