TV Tuesdays: Sitcoms that Changed America—Seinfeld

Jennifer Armstrong

In the 30th anniversary year of Seinfeld, Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, author of Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything, will illuminate how and why the show still resonates today through an intimate history full of gossipy details, show trivia, and insights into how famous episodes came to be.

Comedians Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld never thought anyone would watch their sitcom about a New York comedian sitting around talking to his friends. But against all odds, viewers did watch—first a few and then many, until nine years later nearly forty million Americans were tuning in weekly. Fussy Jerry, neurotic George, eccentric Kramer, and imperious Elaine—people embraced them with love.
