List of Seinfeld episodes

Seinfeld is an American television sitcom created by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. Seinfeld is a "show about nothing",[1] similar to the self-parodying "show within a show" of fourth-season episode "The Pilot". Jerry Seinfeld is 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.[2]

The series debuted on July 5, 1989, on NBC, as The Seinfeld Chronicles.[3] The pilot episode met with poor reviews, and 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 and began airing on May 31, 1990.[4][5] The first season is considered the smallest sitcom order in television history.[6] 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.[7] All nine seasons are available on DVD and, as of 2015, the show is still rerun regularly in syndication.[8] The final episode aired on May 14, 1998.[5]

This list is arranged in the order the episodes were originally broadcast, not in the order of production. Every episode title, with the exception of "Male Unbonding" (the first episode produced after the pilot), begins with the word "The".
