The show grabbed an enthusiastic cult following, including me, but was canceled before the end of its first season. TV variety...

By Preston Jones, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Texas Jul. 20--DALLAS -- Jerry Seinfeld's beloved sitcom was, famously, "about nothing." Turns out that his stand-up routine isn't about much either -- cellphones, Cinnabon and the agony of children's birthday parties -- yet he still manages to wring some side-splitting observations out of the mundane.
