If you know anything about modern television programs then you know that “Seinfeld” is one of the top sitcoms ever made. The program aired from 9 seasons on NBC from 1989 to 1988. The show ended on top; although the ratings still very good it was decided that the show would stop production. Viewers can still get their “Seinfeld” fix because the show is aired several times a day in reruns on cable and local television. Its popularity is still high, and it is proven by a Vanity Fair survey.
CBS and Vanity Fair conducted a survey about comedy that asked several questions. One of the question asked was “Which of these sitcoms do you think is the greatest?” Those that participated in the survey could select from the following sitcoms: “Seinfeld,” “The Honeymooners,” “Friends” “Cheers,” “Arrested Development,” “Mary Tyler Moore,” and “30 Rock.” Of course you are probably curious about why your favorite sitcom was not included in the choices. I am not sure of the reasoning as to why one comedy was included as one of the choices while another was left out. One part of the survey that is known is that it was done via phone with 1,132 random adult participating. With some factors changed, such as the choices included, the results may have been different, but then again Seinfeld may still have made it to the top. Some other great comedies that come to mind are: “The Cosby Show,” “The Andy Griffith Show,” “I Love Lucy,” and “The Big Band Theory.” The list can be very subjective. But no matter what, I cannot argue that “Seinfeld” definitely belongs on that list.
