Alright, CBS, the ball's in your court. Everybody Loves Raymond exec producer Phil Rosenthal hinted Monday night at a Museum of TV & Radio event in New York City that he and Ray Romano may return next fall for a Friends-esque shortened ninth season, TV Guide Online has learned. He added that the decision now rests in the hands of financial execs (including, we presume, CBS' Les Moonves) who are trying to determine whether doing a partial season would be economically feasible. We're going to go out on a limb and predict it would be, but there's no official comment yet from CBS.
