Seinfeld still makes a ton of money, even though they’re all reruns!
It's been nearly two decades since “Seinfeld” brought the world laughter, smiles, and class-A entertainment while providing absolutely no storyline whatsoever.
It turns out that even in recent times, Jerry Seinfeld's show still brings the laugh—and the money. He's still one of the top ranking comedians in terms of earning.
The show's 180-episodes still brings in a lucrative $3 billion in syndication royalties!
The show was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld himself. It ran for 9 seasons, originally airing on July 5, 1989 and the final episode airing May 14, 1998.
It was critically hailed as a top comedy and a cultural phenomenon. It led the Neilson ratings in its 6th and 9th season and finished in the top two every year from 1994 to 1998.
It was even heralded as the greatest television show of all time by TV Guide in 2002.
It's no wonder that running the show again, even in this new era of reality shows and award-worthy dramas, the show still makes a ton.
