About the Show

Seinfeld is an American television sitcom created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, with the latter starring as a fictionalised version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment block on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the show features a host of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, including George Costanza, Elaine Benes and Cosmo Kramer.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 5 July, 1989 to 14 May, 1998. There are 180 episodes in nine seasons, including two-part episodes and clip shows.

The series originally aired in South Africa on SABC3 in the 1990s. It premiered on TopTV's Fox FX channel on Saturday 1 May 2010, at 17h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 9 premiered on Fox FX on Saturday 23 July 2011, at 16h00. New episodes broadcast in a double bill daily. There are 24 episodes in the ninth and final season.

Synopsis

Seinfeld was first conceived in the late 1980's by top US stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld with friend Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Saturday Night Live).

Originally titled "Stand Up", the show revolves around a comedian and how he gets his material.

Nothing much happens as far as story arcs are concerned (the cast don't end up sleeping with each other at one point or another), but each episode is crammed full of completely-impossible-and-yet-totally-likely events that could only come from the combined insanity that is Seinfeld/David.

Jerry Seinfeld plays himself, the comedian.

A regular character is George, Jerry's best friend. George is neurotic and a complete misfit, who understands human interaction like Saddam Hussein understands diplomacy.

Jerry's neighbour, Kramer, is possibly the most well-rendered character in the history of television, with his trademark door-opening technique and unmanagable hair.

Jerry's ex-girlfriend Elaine rounds off the cast.
