Nick at Nite Starts to Air 'Seinfeld'

Nick at Nite will start to air the hit sitcom Seinfeld weeknights between 2am-4am from Tuesday, May 31!

Seinfeld premiered in July of 1989 on NBC, and ran for 180 episodes over nine seasons until May of 1998. The show was created by Seinfeld and Larry David, and starred Seinfeld as a fictionalized version of himself — a stand-up comedian living and working in New York City while trying to find balance in his personal life.

The other stars of the show were Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes, Jason Alexander as George Costanza and Michael Richards as Cosmo Kramer. All four live in New York's Upper West Side in the show, and much of it takes place in their apartments, a nearby diner or other low-stakes situations. Wayne Knight (Catscratch3rd Rock from the SunJurassic ParkHot in Cleveland) played Seinfeld's nemesis Newman. The series was famously touted as "a show about nothing" in its time.

Seinfeld was considered a revolutionary sitcom when it premiered, breaking many conventions of the genre and presenting the audience with reasons to dislike its main characters. The show also resisted the predictable thread of a romance between the main characters — particularly Jerry and Elaine — and undercut emotional and sentimental moments at every turn. This is why shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Workaholics were later compared to Seinfeld.
