When the Seinfeld show debuted, it was called "The Seinfeld Chronicles" and NBC was so unenthusiastic about it that the network gave the creators just a four-episode order. Most new pilots at the time got at least a 13-episode order. If the show doesn't perform out of the gates, that order is reduced or the show is canceled. Jerry Seinfeld still has that letter from NBC with the four-episode order. It hangs on his wall ... probably next to all the awards the show won in its nine years on the air.
