I don’t find myself thinking a lot about Kelsey Grammer (unless I’m channel-surfing, stumble onto a Frasier rerun, and check immediately to see if it’s the episode The Ski Lodge). But apparently, I do miss him. I just read that he’s got a pilot at ABC, to be written by Everybody Loves Raymond alum Tucker Cawley, and I was psyched. According to Variety, Grammer will star as “a corporate tycoon who reconnects with his family after being downsized out of his powerful job.” What do you think, PopWatchers: Greenlight or red light?

It gives Grammer, last seen on the small screen on Fox’s Back to You, pictured, a chance to play haughty — which he does best — and it’s timely. I’m going greenlight. And you?
