NEW YORK, June 7 (UPI) -- U.S. sitcom "Seinfeld" has earned $2.7 billion since it ended its 9-season run in 1998, said Time Warner, the show's owner.

The New York Post called the series -- starring Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a group of neurotic friends living in Manhattan -- the most profitable 30-minute program in TV history.

The show's earnings since it ended have come from syndication rights and DVD sales, with the sitcom's co-creators Seinfeld and Larry David alone having made hundreds of millions of dollars from the airing of "Seinfeld" reruns, the newspaper noted.
