ABC seems to be acknowledging what we've all known for some time: The Practice stunk last season. At the TCA press tour, the network's entertainment president Susan Lyne told reporters that the show's creator and executive producer David E. Kelley will take a more hands-on role this coming season. In other ABC news, NYPD Blue which unlike The Practice, experienced a creative resurgence last year will launch its 10th season on Sept. 24 with its 200th episode. A one-hour retrospective will air at 9 pm/ET, leading into the season premiere at 10 pm/ET.
