During the second season of ‘Seinfeld’ – on Wednesday, December 12, 1990, to be more exact – the cast sat down to read through the script for what would be the fourth episode of the season and only the ninth episode of a series that would go on to produce a total of 180 episodes. The episode was titled ‘The Bet.’ Sets for the episode had been built. Guest characters had been cast. ‘The Bet’ would never air.
In 1991, The New England Journal Of Medicine reported that Entertainment Tonight host Mary Hart's voice triggered epileptic seizures in women!! It was later spoofed in an episode of "Seinfeld".
