To celebrate Seinfeld's 25th anniversary, TBS will add an extra hour of nothing to their programming block as they air the 25 most famous episodes from the sitcom's nine-season run between June 30th and July 5th, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Episodes will air in two-hour blocks each night, starting at 6 p.m. (as opposed to Seinfeld's typical 7 p.m. rerun slot on the network) and will include such classics as "The Serenity Now," "The Chinese Restaurant" and "The Shower Head."
As Variety notes, on July 5th, starting at 5 p.m., TBS will commemorate the exact day the show debuted in 1989 with a marathon featuring the five most seminal Seinfeld episodes: "The Contest," "The Outing," "The Junior Mint," "The Puffy Shirt" and "The Yada Yada." The network is also urging fans to chime in on Twitter with the hashtag #seinfeld25.
Despite ending production in 1998, Seinfeld remains one of the most popular sitcoms on TV. Earlier this year, rumors ran rampant when Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Larry David were spotted filming at New York City's Tom's Restaurant — more famously known as the cast's old haunt, Monk's Café. The mini-reunion turned out to be a Super Bowl spot for Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which Jerry — in vintage form — chastises George (Alexander) for ruining their chances of getting invited to a Super Bowl party because he cheered too loudly last time.
