New York "Seinfeld" has not suffered from shrinkage.
Seven years after its finale, not only does the classic sitcom air up to two hours a day in some markets, but the reruns remain fresh enough to spark watercooler chitchat about everything from puffy shirts to mimbos.
"Isn't it weird how present it still is on the television landscape?" Jerry Seinfeld wondered during a recent joint interview with Jason Alexander (who played George), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) and Michael Richards (Kramer).
"I hear it all the time, 'We go to bed with you guys. We never miss it,"' says Alexander.
Today marks the DVD release of seasons five and six, a period when "Seinfeld" was at its peak.
