Though the title has been sliced from ``The Seinfeld Chronicles`` to ``Seinfeld,`` none of the innovation, charm and sharp humor hinted at in the premiere have been diminished.

Seinfeld, which began tentatively in 1989, is an anomaly, one of those rare step-changes in entertainment that owes absolutely nothing to anything that came before it.

Seinfeld is eager to give you more comedy value for your viewing investment. Seinfeld isn’t laugh-out-loud funny, but it’s one of the most amiable shows on the air.
