Seinfeld Reruns Make BANK!

Serious bank!

The reruns of the super successful Seinfeld have made $2.7 BILLION since the show went off the air 12 years ago!

Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David have an undisclosed ownership stake in the show that provides them with millions each year — but it looks like the other co-stars didn't hold out for that in their contracts so they don't receive any syndication money.

Bummer!

    Seinfeld is my all time favorite show! I never get tired of watching it.



  2. 2

    I am a big big fan of this show and not surprised to know it has made BILLIONs!



  3. 3

    wow its raining jews



  4. 4

    I can understand Julia-Louis Dreyfus not getting herself a cut of the syndication money, she doesn't need it - she's heiress to a billion dollar fortune - but the other actors' agents should've known better!!



  5. 5

    YEA DOUCHE… THE OTHERS WERENT LISTED AS CO-CREATORS OF THE SHOW. MAYBE THAT'S WHY THEY DIDNT HOLD OUT FOR IT. MORON!!

    12 YEARS AGO?????? doesn't seem that long ago, soo old. BUT, why should actors They got paid the first time for their work, they get paid for some reruns. It should not go on forever. THAT is NONSENSE. Seinfeild and David created it, they owned it, that is different. It is like renting something. I hate when actors b*tch on and on about their stuff being on and not making money on it-YOU GOT PAID THE FIRST TIME. You could use the same arguement when someone makes say a table. The person gets paid for it. Thats it. Should they get paid everytime someone uses it???? NO! BUT, if someone else OWNS IT and RENTS it out, the owner gets paid RENT MONEY. Actors have to look at it like that. and they can be remembered for great work and keeping their name in the public

    I love Seinfeld! It's a shame that Jerry didn't think of his coworkers livelihood and was set on ending their financial security so that he could go out with people wanting more! I really think the show could have worked without Jerry it was Elaine,Kramer and George that made that made the show. Even Neuman was more interesting than Jerry!

    Seinfeld was the last truly funny sitcom on the air. When it left, I quit watching network t.v.

    Twelve years gone and Black people STILL aren't watching this overrated crap. I feel sorry for the people across our country who think that the NYC demographic looks anything like what was presented on this show.
    And such an unattractive cast, just like on "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Fugs.

    I NEVER get tired of watching the show, it's the ONLY show I actually watch! There are very occasional times I'll still catch one I barely remember and I know there's like 1 out there I haven't seen! But it doesn't even matter, they're fricking funny over and over again! Best show ever!!!!!!!!



  11. 11

    that show is a classic! i have yet to see a sitcom funnier than seinfeld. one of the other posters above me was right, network tv just isn't the same anymore..



  12. 12

    What are you gonna do???? THey are jews, they love their money and no like to share.

    Hey whats the difference between a jew and a bottom feeder???
    Ans: ones a fish.

    Larry David deserves every penny, and Kramer, George and Elaine ought to be getting a big payoff (I mean, Jason Alexander is hawking Jenny Craig, how sad is that). But Jerry Seinfeld himself, well, he just got too damn lucky.

    Re: caroaber – Oh, come on, the show is good. The only low points were when LD left and JS took over (you can see how the quality went down) and when LD returned for that abomination that was the series finale.



  15. 15

    Re: caroaber – Guess you're outnumbered here. I've never heard anyone say that before about Seinfeld… A little paranoid? So there are no shows where everyone was black? I loved In Living Color to name JUST ONE. You should really look into that problem you have. I'm guessing you see the rest of the world from that sad stand point.



  16. 16

    Jerry's kid's kid's kid's kids will be receiving royalties…



  17. 17

    Julia-Louis Dreyfus' father controls a family fortune of about $2.9 BILLION; lucky girl.



  18. 18

    So who does get the money? The studio?

    Re: shittin_condoms – A**hole.

    Re: JackWad – No, I don't see the world from a sad standpoint. I do believe in the Nielsens, and they consistently showed that "Seinfeld" was a low-rated show in Black U.S. households. (Nor has it done so great in the international markets.)
    I was born and grew up in NYC, and y'know what? We're far more than just the Upper West Side, m'kay?
    I know that the show has many fans, many diehards. But what I saw was a dearth of Black actors, Kramer stomping on the Puerto Rican flag, and a bunch of self-absorbed whites who were arrogant and living within a solipsistic circle. A bunch of 30 and 40-somethings with no children and dubious jobs who managed to have great apartments. Not my cup of tea, but, of course, you are entitled to your own opinions.
    But I was not so shocked when Michael Richards revealed his poisonous racism at that L.A. comedy club.



  21. 21

    Well of course, it's only the BEST SHOW EVER MADE!!!!!



  22. 22

    It is a catch 22 with getting on a hit show. Most contracts even 12 years ago stated that they would not get more than three years residues on shows , even when they re-run for years and years. And you can't "hold out" for the perk…they will just hire another actor over you. It has happened show after show…you would think there would be some law enacted where your likeness (even as an actor) MUST be compensated every time your face is on camera! What is fair is fair….but that seems more fair to me than never seeing a dime for your shows being run over and over….

    Re: caroaber – Michael Richards meltdown had NOTHING to do with that show, and I heard the rest of the cast was horrified. Are you unaware that Wanda Sykes is good friends with Larry David and appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm as a regular? They address this very issue in that show, how ironic! Michael was VERY wrong and OBVIOUSLY having some low self-esteem induced episode but let's not forget the people who were fucking HECKLING him to begin with. Are they simply let off the hook? Did he not apologize? Did it matter to you that he went into hiding in another country out of shame. Let it go…anger can bring out the worst in people- people go into freaky rages when their reaction isn't indicative of how they are as a person. You might speak of A LOT of black people but my black friend Kinetta loved the show and I'm willing to bet you've never really watched 2 whole episodes in your life, you're just looking at show that is racially "dated" in the sense that during it's time of production, what was the population of minorities in America at that time? What is it now? 15 % of the population? I've never come across this kind of hyper-conspiracy regarding race and Seinfeld before. One of my favorite shows was "Living Single" and yet I didn't even NOTICE there barely apeared a white person on that show. I thinks it sad, you apear to be LOOKING for this kind of thing.
