Seinfeld was a TV show that ran from 1989 to 1998. It has often been described as “a show about nothing.” Here is the definitive ranked list of all 172 episodes.

I found 35 different lists of the “best” or “favorite” episodes of Seinfeld. Then I averaged them in Excel to create this master ranked list of every Seinfeld episode. See my Methodology page for the research process that was used, including links to all 35 lists that were averaged. Below is the full ranked list. Links all go to the Seinfeld Fandom website.
