  1. Another fun little tidbit – perhaps one of thr famous one of these blocks was the November 3rd, 1994 set of episodes. All 4 shows in the lineup focused their storylines around a power outage in New York (except for Seinfeld, which refused to participate, instead making George eat an eclair from the garbage). In the mid-90s, Must See TV shows were almost all set in New York and enabled a bunch of crossovers.
