A blog about nothing

Ten years ago tonight, "Seinfeld" ended its 9-year run as one of the greatest shows on television.

The show's finale concluded with Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer in a jail cell after being prosecuted and sentenced to one year in jail for violating a "Good Samaritan" law in a fictitional Massachusetts town. A parade of characters who were the butt of the quartet's snide remarks throughout the series testified against them in court.

More than 76 million people watched the episode, the third-most in television history.

After the one-year "sentence," fans hoped the gang would return to prime time, or at the very least a "Seinfeld" TV movie. However, 10 years later, "the show about nothing" just lives on in reruns.
