Transcript A Farewell to "Seinfeld" A Show About Nothing Jesse Launtz If events planned around Thursday night's "Seinfeld" conclusion on NBC were any indication, 76 million watchers in the nation paid tribute to a sitcom that began life as a scheduling afterthought and is leaving nine television seasons later at the forefront of the American consciousness. There were viewing parties, look-alike contests, online memorabilia auctions, TV homages and hundred's of webpages dedicated to the show. Cable's TV Land channel programmed an hour of dead air from 8 to 9 p.m. eastern time Thursday, in tribute to the series about nothing. As people all over the country assembled Thursday, May 20 to watch and celebrate the television show "about nothing." The media-fueled going-away party for the top-rated NBC comedy series, which aired its final original episode, spilled out of living rooms, into restaurants, bars and public squares. There were parties, protests over the episode which involved the characters of Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine being put on trial for their "criminal indifference" when witnessing a carjacking of a fat guy. They all wound up in prison together for an entire year. Reaction to the show was mixed. Matthew Bussa, a engineering major said, "It was the best show ever. It combined all the shows into one grand finale. I don't know what I'm going to watch on Thursdays now." "I didn't like it; I was very disappointed," said Sarah Urdiales, a communication disorders major. "It threw everything into one episode. It just didn't work." In an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," star and series co-creator Jerry Seinfeld acknowledged that even he had been overwhelmed by the media coverage associated with the show's finale, which joins such historic programs as "I Love Lucy" and "The Andy Griffith Show" by signing off while still atop the ratings. The show has won many awards in the past. An Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, the prestigious Peabody Award for Best Television Entertainment, a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Series or Comedy/Musical, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Ensemble Performance in a Comedy Series. Truly Jerry Seinfeld is the "master of his domain." "It was the best show ever. It combined all the shows into one grand finale. I donf« know what I'm soins to watch en Thursdays iow*" Hatthew Bussa HO Hay
