->''"Hi! We're Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza and we're the stars of NBC's hit show, Seinfeld. We've been on the air for 21 years, and, well, coming up with ideas and writing the show is hard. That's all. Enjoy our new episodes!"''
-->-- "Jerry Seinfeld" and "George Costanza"

->''"Dat's it Jerry.... I'm DONE WITH BEANS!"''
-->-- "George Costanza", [[http://vimeo.com/12071239 "Beans"]]

[[http://www.seinfeldcomedy.com The Jerry Seinfeld Program]] is a 2010 webseries which has resurrected the [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} classic sitcom]] as a series of minute-or-so long episodes, updated every couple days. If you thought the TV show was about nothing, you truly haven't seen "nothing" yet.

----
!!This web original provides examples of:

* ActorAllusion - In one short, "Jerry" completely breaks character and claims to be Dan Klein, the actor playing him, for the rest of the episode.
* AdaptationDecay - Intentional
* AffectionateParody
* ArcWords - "Well now that's.... usin' your bean!"
* BlackComedy - Increasingly so towards the end of the series.
* BriefAccentImitation - "Jerry" has inexplicably slipped into German and South African accents for a few words in certain episodes.
* CerebusSyndrome - Intentional.
* ChromaKey - How the series appears to be set in the real apartment from Seinfeld.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome - Seemingly everybody in the ''Seinfeld'' universe except for "Jerry" and "George", most glaringly Elaine and Kramer. Lampshaded twice.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}} - "Jerry Seinfeld"
* CreatorBacklash - It would almost seem like "Jerry" and "George" hate the show, and want it canceled. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Nah]].
* DarkerAndEdgier
* EasyEvangelism - In episode 2, ''God''.
* FourthWallMailSlot - Done twice, both times causing George and Jerry to have existential crises after they learn what their audience really thinks of them.
* FranchiseZombie - Tends to happen somewhere down the line once your sitcom loses half its cast and outlasts ''Gunsmoke''.
* TheGhost - Kramer and Elaine. In fact, in their only mention to date, "Jerry" claims to not even know who they are.
** A viewer asks what happened to them in the first [[FourthWallMailSlot fan-mail episode]], but "Jerry" claims he [[ShrugOfGod doesn't know]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners - Just ''barely'' heterosexual life partners. The "Penis Size" episode certainly crosses the line.
* [[spoiler: KillEmAll]]
* LongRunner: ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', which has been [[AlternateUniverse running for the past 21 years]].
* MinimalistCast- You can count the number of characters that appear who aren't "Jerry" or "George" on one finger.
* MoodDissonance
* NoFourthWall - The last line of almost every episode is addressed to the viewers at home. In certain episodes, a joke bombs and "Jerry" yells at the studio audience in response.
* ObligatorySwearing - Here and there, out of nowhere.
* [[SpinOff Online Spin Off]]
* OverlyLongGag - Many, like "Clapping".
* [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech The Reason You Suck Letter]] - See SeasonalRot on the [[YMMV/TheJerrySeinfeldProgram YMMV Page]].
* ScrewedByTheNetwork - Once a hit show and the pride of the network ''Seinfeld'' now survives as a series of poorly made web shorts with half of its original cast missing. Confusingly they've also renewed the show through a 26th season.
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny - Just one example is Jerry's comedy act falling apart and the laugh track disappearing in "I Love You".
* TalkativeLoon: Jerry in "Chacabi".
--> '''Jerry:''' Chacabi! Chic..a-bi! Chic-a-bi! Chic...a-boo!
--> '''George:''' What are you talking about?
--> '''Jerry:''' I don't know...([[BreakingTheFourthWall pointing at audience]]) do you?
* VulgarHumor - Taken to the extreme in the in-universe OfficialFanSubmittedContent episode "Whores".
* XMeetsY - ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' meets ''{{Stella}}''.

--> '''Jerry''' (reading Carol's letter): Dear Seinfeld, you guys suck. What the hell are you doing to this show? It should have been cancelled 10 years ago! Now its just you and George standing there talking about the dumbest shit. Have you noticed there hasn't been a single joke on the show? You're sad and disgusting!

* HoYay - Played hard in "Penis Size" where the conversation drifts from "Jerry" pointing out that the two have are very close friends, to the two acknowledging that they love eachother to wanting to see and measure eachother's penises.
--> '''George:''' I love you now and forever Jerry! I wanna tell the whole world!
--> '''Jerry:''' You sayin that you want to make it public?
--> '''George:''' I do!
--> '''Jerry:''' First we gotta make it (points at downward) ''private''.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Briefly taken to a nearly BeyondTheImpossible level InUniverse despite obviously having its budget slashed to oblivion, losing half of its cast, low ratings and being cut down to shorts NBC has kept the show going for 21 seasons and in episode 18 Jerry mentions that apparently they still have ''five'' more seasons.
This list shows the last 10 events of 23. Show all.
