  • As Kramer became more popular, his entrance applause grew so prolonged, that the cast complained it was ruining the pacing of their scenes. Directors subsequently asked the audience not to applaud so much when Kramer entered.
  • Jerry Seinfeld turned down an offer from NBC, that would have made him one hundred ten million dollars for a tenth season of the show.
  • Before the show was set to air, Jerry Seinfeld asked Jason Alexander what he thought their chances for success were. Alexander said he thought they “didn’t have a chance”. When asked why, Alexander responded, “Because the audience for this show is me, and I don’t watch TV.”
  • Jerry says “Hello, Newman” sixteen times in the entire series.
  • Jerry Seinfeld is the only cast member to appear in all one hundred eighty episodes. Jason Alexander comes in a close second, missing only one episode, “The Pen”.
