It Happened Today in New York City
On May 31, 1990, the legendary comedy show, Seinfeld, premiered on NBC Television. Nearly a year after a pilot episode called The Seinfeld Chronicles aired to less than enthusiastic reception, the series went back to the drawing board and premiered with a different opener that launched nine seasons of success. Purported to be “about nothing”, the show is considered one of the New Yorkiest comedies ever to air on TV and has received seven Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, winning in 1993.
