"I found out about it in USA Today," Alexander told The Associated Press recently.
"That show had a sizable audience and a loyal audience and it wasn't a runaway hit but it wasn't a runaway miss," said the 46-year-old actor.
"We did better in our first year than the `Raymond' show did in their first year, but there was a time that a network would allow a show to grow. Those days are gone."
Alexander, who played Jerry Seinfeld's friend George Costanza on the long-running '90s comedy "Seinfeld (search)," starred in "Bob Patterson" in 2001, which quickly flopped.
But he isn't ready to give up on television just yet.
He recently sold a pilot to the USA network that Alexander describes as a "dramedy" with a detective element. The series, written by the same team that wrote "Moonlighting," will focus on two guys and a girl.
