NEW YORK â€” All the series on NBC’s popular Thursday-night schedule close out their seasons tonight, but the most intriguing finale has to be that of ‘Seinfeld” (9 p.m., WSTM-TV, Channel 3), in which the Rose meets “Rochelle, Rochelle.” Bette Midler (“The Rose”] guests as the star of “Rochelle, Rochelle: The Musical,” a Broadway adaptation of the art-house movie that longtime “Seinfeld” fans will remember as “a young girl’s strange erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
When Midler gets crunched by George (Jason Alexander) in a play at the plate during a Softball game, she is unable to go on stage, and her
understudy (Adelaide Miller) steps up to take over the part. Complicating matters is the fact that the understudy is dating Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), and suspicious minds begin to wonder if Midler’s accident was in fact an accident at all.
