[1989-1998]
 


Seinfeld, the Emmy Award-winning comedy series, stars Jerry Seinfeld as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York city is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life's most perplexing, yet often trivial questions. Seinfeld, described as "the show about nothing", explores the mundane situations in life which provide humour when viewed from afar: things like waiting in line, searching for a lost item, or the trials and tribulations of dating.

"NBC asked if I had any ideas for a show, and I said no. They sent me away to think about it. Then, a month or two later, I bumped into Larry David (co-creator/executive producer/writer) at one of the clubs in New York and I was telling him about the meeting. We were walking around near one of those little Korean fruit stands that they have in New York, buying some late night groceries, and we were making fun of some of the products there. Larry said, "You know, this is what the show should be: just two comedians making fun of stuff, walking around talking. That was the premise we started with." – Jerry Seinfeld on the birth of Seinfeld.

The pilot of the show called "The Seinfeld Chronicles", written by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, began in 1989. It ran on NBC for the year on Thursday nights after the hit TV show "Cheers". Since 1990 was the last season of "Cheers", and the producers at NBC had to find a new show to replace the popular time slot of Thursday nights at 9:00, the NBC producers decided that "Seinfeld" would be a big enough hit to be able to take the spot of "Cheers". After being renamed to "Seinfeld" in 1990 so then it wouldn't conflict with another TV show title, it ran right up until the end of the show in May of 1998 at 9:00 on Thursday nights.

In the summer of 1997 Jerry Seinfeld announced to NBC and to the world that the 1998 season would be the last ever season of the show. People were shocked about the announcement. Many thought that it was too early to end the show. But in Jerry Seinfeld’s mind, and in the minds of the rest of the cast, it was time to end it. The main reason given by Jerry Seinfeld for ending the series is that he wanted to "go out in style" and end the show when it was still popular. He didn’t want to end the show at a time when it wouldn’t be remembered, and the 1998 season was a season that was just as popular as the rest which would definitely be remembered.

The final episode of Seinfeld aired on May 14th of 1998. It was the most long awaited sitcom finale ever, with the largest number of viewers of any other sitcom finale ever. Beating out other popular finales such as Cheers and MASH, with over 50 million viewers. The people involved in the taping of the final episode had to sign an oath to say that they wouldn’t speak of the show at all until it aired.
