NBC is thisclose to a deal that will bring The West Wing back for a seventh — and possibly final — season. But according to Variety, producer Warner Bros. is prepared to give NBC a huge discount on the show in exchange for the renewal, slashing Wing's $6 million per-episode license fee in half. So don't be surprised if independent candidate Pauly Shore pulls an 11th-hour upset over Jimmy Smits or Alan Alda in the upcoming election.
