List of Seinfeld episodes

This is an episode list of the United States sitcom "Seinfeld", created by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. "Seinfeld" was a "show about nothing", [cite web|url=http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3664/is_199807/ai_n8791306|title=Editorial: Good-bye Seinfeld|author=Miller, Patrick D.|publisher="Theology Today"|date=July 1998|accessdate=2007-05-17] similar to the self-parodying "show within a show" of fourth-season episodes "The Pilot, Part 1" and "Part 2". Jerry Seinfeld was the lead character and played as a fictionalized version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment block on New York City's Upper West Side, the show features a host of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, which include George Costanza, Elaine Benes and Cosmo Kramer, who are portrayed by Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards, respectively.

The series debuted on July 5, 1989, on NBC as "The Seinfeld Chronicles". [cite web|url=http://www.sonypictures.com/tv/shows/seinfeld/episode_guide/?sl=episode&ep=101|title=The Seinfeld Chronicles episode at Seinfeld Official Site|publisher=Sony Pictures|accessdate=2008-03-23] The pilot episode met with poor reviews, as a result, NBC passed on the show. However, NBC executive Rick Ludwin believed the series had potential. He therefore gave "Seinfeld" a budget to create four more episodes, which formed the rest of season 1 which began airing on May 31, 1990.

[cite video|title=Seinfeld Seasons 1 & 2: Notes about Nothing - "The Contest"|medium=DVD|publisher=Sony Pictures Home Entertainment|date=2004-11-23] During its nine-year run, 180 episodes of "Seinfeld" were produced. The count includes both halves of three one-hour episodes, including the finale, and two retrospective episodes, each split into two parts: "The Highlights of 100", covering the first 100 episodes; and "The Clip Show", also known as "The Chronicle", which aired before the series finale. On November 25, 2004, a special titled "The Seinfeld Story" was broadcast. This marked the first appearance of "Seinfeld" on NBC since its series finale in 1998.
