In 1989 one of the most popular sitcoms, ‘Seinfeld’, aired its first episode and captured the interest of many people. The show starred cast members such as Jason Alexander, Julie Louis-Dreyfus, Wayne Knight, Jerry Stiller, Micheal Richards and of course the stand-up comedian himself Jerry Seinfeld.

‘Seinfeld’ was on the air for nine seasons on NBC and has a total of 180 episodes. The show revolved around Jerry Seinfeld and his friends in New York, in odd situations and a ton of laughable moments. The show was developed by Jerry Seinfeld and his comedian friend, Larry David. When Seinfeld ended in 1998 it was the highest rated show in America.

You may know ‘Seinfeld’ as “the show about nothing”, when it was pitched to NBC by Larry David it was actually supposed to be about how a comedian gets his comedy material but It was called ‘a show about nothing” in one of the episodes and that stuck with the fans.

Another interesting fact about ‘Seinfeld’ is that the opening music was different for every episode, Jonathon Wolff said “As long as he’s creating new material, I’ll do the same thing.” Rosie O’ Donnell auditioned to play Elaine in the show, actresses such as Patricia Heaton and Megan Mullally were also considered for the part, but as we all know Julie Louis-Dreyfus played the part and she played it well.
