Now you have two options for giving the Gift of Nothing. This one in a box, and this one in a book. Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything tells the story of what some say is the best, and others the worst, sitcom ever made.

If you watched Seinfeld when it aired from 1989 to 1998, you already know this tale of nothing; Jerry and George pitched it to NBC as their characters in a storyline on the show. Jerry, of course, plays himself, and George Seinfeld's real-life collaborator, Larry David. Following their journey from two comedians sitting around talking about nothing, to two comedians suggesting NBC make a show about two comedians sitting around talking about nothing, to NBC accepting a show about two comedians sitting around talking about nothing...but burying it in the "TV dead zone of summer," Seinfeldia lays out the path towards 40 million viewers.

Neither Seinfeld nor David wrote Seinfeldia, TV historian and entertainment writer Jennifer Keishin Armstrong did. If you're curious whether or not she does the Soup Nazi, man hands, marble rye, and puffy shirts justice, check out How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything. If you hate it, you can always re-gift it to your friend Cornelius.
