TBS celebrates #Seinfeld25 this week with special broadcasts, new clip-sized clips!

Seinfeld first aired on NBC on July 5, 1989, as The Seinfeld Chronicles.

Yada, yada, yada and all of these 25 years later, it has raked in more than $3 billion just in syndication! Vulture broke down the math, figuring co-creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David earn $400 million apiece, each time the syndication rights renew.

Speaking of syndication, though. TBS will run the 25 most classic episodes of this vaunted juggernaut in sitcom history throughout the next six nights. The TBS Seinfeld25 week schedule is below.

But first, some great moments in Seinfeld history, newly chopped up and redistributed via TBS to you via the tubes!
