NEW YORK, June 19, 2015 — The busiest man in TV this week may have been Matt Lauer. At the very least, he drew enough attention with two high-profile interviews to appear twice in this week’s rundown of my five MediaPost TV blogs — Tuesday’s blog about Lauer’s interview with race masquerader Rachel Dolezal and Friday’s blog on Lauer’s interview with Brian Williams. Also this week: “Seinfeld,” Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. Read all five of my MediaPost TV blogs for the week with the links below:

Monday, June 15: ‘Seinfeld’ Repeats On Hulu: Much Ado About ‘Nothing’

Tuesday, June 16: Politics Of ‘Self-Identification’ Takes Center Stage In Lauer-Dolezal Interview

Wednesday, June 17: Stars For A Day: Trump, Jeb Bush Take Over TV For Most Of Tuesday

Thursday, June 18: NBC’s Decision On Williams: Send Him Down To MSNBC

Friday, June 19: Williams’ Interview Was Painful To Watch, And Also Unnecessary
