TBS to air 'Seinfeld' episodes featuring Yankee icon George Steinbrenner all week
Jason Alexander’s character on Seinfeld, George Costanza, had many problems: His cheapskate ways caused the death of his fiancée. His parents were nuts. And then there was that shrinkage. But one thing he could always count on (or not) was his job in the front office with the New York Yankees, given to him by The Boss himself, George Steinbrenner, who was played by the Seinfeld co-creator Larry David on the series. And now, with Steinbrenner’s passing last week, TV Guide reports that TBS plans to air 10 episodes that feature the Yankees owner all week long.
The first episode tonight — airing at 7 p.m. ET — centers on George’s first attempt to work for Steinbrenner. Sure, we’ve all seen it before, but a Seinfeld dedication to The Boss is still a home run.
