The Night That "Seinfeld" Had No Competition

There’s no doubt that Seinfeld won in the ratings on May 14, 1998 — the night of the series finale. It was the 5th most-watched TV finale of all time. As a matter of fact, it had absolutely no competition — literally. For the duration of the evening, no other programming aired on TV Land. Instead, there was a shot of a closed office door and a handwritten note that read: “We’re TV fans so……We’re watching the last episode of Seinfeld. Will return at 10pm ET/7pm PT.”
