Legendary funnyman Jerry Seinfeld's Oscar broadcast review is in – and he thinks the show was a hit.

"That was the greatest Oscar opening dialogue… that I've seen since I don't know when," Jerry told Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and "The Billy Bush Show" on Tuesday.

"Really?" Billy asked.

"Oh my God! Are you kidding? I was in a room full of a bunch of people," Jerry said, referring to his Sunday night spent at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. "People were just destroyed! Pounding tables."

So what made the funnyman, who currently is promoting his new NBC show, "The Marriage Ref," laugh?

"Great jokes, beautifully delivered," he said. "A very simple, but difficult thing."

"They had a good relationship together," Tom Papa, the actual "Marriage Ref" chimed in. "You don't see comic duos very much any more and to see these two guys just out of the black have this kind of self-deprecating, teasing relationship, they were great."

And the two men agreed there was one joke in particular that killed it.

"I loved the Dame Helen Mirren joke too, that was one of my favorites. I loved the 'Alec gives Steve the flower,' intro and Steve says, 'and Alec Baldwin' — that was hilarious," Jerry said. "And the Christoph Waltz, Nazi-hunting Jews and they gestured to the crowd was another killer."

With all the talk of Oscars, Billy had to ask Jerry if he'd ever consider the hosting gig.

"No," Jerry said flatly.

"Why?" Billy asked. "Too much pressure?"

"Well, I'll tell you what, this is the team that I want to see here for the next five years, first of all. And second of all, it's a very difficult thing to do. That's another reason I was so impressed by it," he said.
