TBS to air a bunch of great 'Seinfeld' episodes this week
We have no idea how we missed this, but better late than never, right?
Now through July 5, TBS is airing 25 of the most famous Seinfeld episodes, in honor of the sitcom's 25th anniversary. Yep, that's right, that Show About Nothing debuted on July 5, 1989. If that doesn't make you feel old, well, you probably weren't even alive in 1989!
So tune in this week to revel in the hilarity of episodes like “The Chinese Restaurant” (where they wait forever for a table!), “The Puffy Shirt” (Jerry wears a really puffy shirt!), "The Strike" (the one with Festivus!) and “The Contest" (description not appropriate for a family newspaper).
