A little piece of me died this morning when I read the Variety headline NBC passing on ‘Legally Mad.’ Not because I’m the world’s biggest Kristin Chenoweth fan, but because I wanted to see if David E. Kelley’s scripts would be even crazier when he had the word mad right there in the title. God I miss Boston Legal….But then I read further, and saw that “insiders” told the trade that Lauren Graham’s ABC comedy “is believed to be dead” after the pilot, which cast the Gilmore Girls alum as a self-help guru obsessed with her ex-boyfriend, reportedly screened to crickets. If true, this is the passing that would hurt me the most. Or at least as much as if CBS doesn’t pick up either the medical drama starring Alex O’Loughlin or the medical drama starring Jeremy Northam.
