Kelsey Grammer on Putting the Bullet in Hank: "It Wasn't Very Funny"

Kelsey Grammer, Boss

Kelsey Grammer, a four-time Emmy winner for his role on Frasier, admits he was eager to try on a dramatic role after his short-lived and critically panned 2009 sitcom Hank.

"With Hank, nobody really liked that, and it wasn't very funny," Grammer, 56, told reporters with a chuckle at the Television Critics Association conference Friday to promote the upcoming Starz political drama Boss. "So we thought we'd do something different."

Is Your Favorite Show in Danger?

Fringe, Eastwick

It's that time of year: The networks are looking ahead to January and their midseason schedules, but some fall shows will have to be canceled to make room for the new stuff. Here's our list of 15 at-risk shows, many of which have posted significant ratings declines. Others are expensive to produce, a little long in the tooth, or just aren't performing as well as their timeslot competition — or even other shows on their own networks. Read about the issues each faces and then weigh in on which deserve to stay — or go.

(We'll keep updating the list of renewals and cancellations at the bottom of the page, so check back for the latest scheduling news.)

Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009

The Middle

The Middle
8:30/7:30c ABC
Originally developed — and shelved — for the 2006-07 TV season with Ricki Lake in the lead, this sitcom was finally given the green light when Patricia Heaton came on board. No offense to Ms. Lake, but with a two-time Emmy winner as the star, The Middle probably has a better shot at breaking out of the pack. The Everybody Loves Raymond vet plays a harried, married mother of three in a quirky Midwestern family that will no doubt be compared with the Malcolm in the Middle clan, but clever dysfunctional slapstick never goes out of style.

Read on for previews of Law & Order: SVU, Hank, Eastwick and Bank of Mom and Dad. read more
