1998: 76 Million Viewers Say So Long to 'Seinfeld'
May 14, 2012  | By Christy Slewinski
 
On this day in 1998, NBC's "show about nothing" came to an end. More than 76 million people tuned in to see the Seinfeld finale, making it the third most-watched series finale in TV history (behind M*A*S*H and Cheers, respectively).

The two-part event — during which Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer were put on trial for failing to come to the aid of a crime victim — featured cameo appearances by many of the most memorable characters from the series' nine-season run, ranging from Marla the virgin to the Soup Nazi.

Prior to the finale, NBC presented a retrospective that walked viewers through the show's most memorable moments. Later that night, the show's stars — Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards — appeared as guests on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
