NBC (National Broadcasting Company) is the television network that originally aired Seinfeld. NBC has been around for decades, but it became popular during the 1990s. This is when they had "must-see TV", including Seinfeld and Friends.

Fictional Story

During the fourth season of Seinfeld, the network was interested in giving Jerry a series. After a long negotiation, the television pilot Jerry aired. However, it was cancelled after the first episode. Later, NBC was interested in making a pilot for Kenny Bania. In “The Finale”, NBC ordered a full season of Jerry, but when the four friends went to jail, the series never came to be.

Fictional Susan Ross worked for and was fired by NBC.


  • NBC cancelling Jerry is a reference to how the real NBC nearly cancelled Seinfeld after the pilot, The Seinfeld Chronicles.
