The sitcom may be an endangered species--only six are launching this fall. The broadcast nets will show less than 20 live-action, 30-minute sitcoms, half as many as five seasons ago. One reason: none
has finished in the top 10 since "Everybody Loves Raymond" in 2005. With just six new comedies being launched, the fall TV season doesn't appear to be much of a laughing matter. Fox has one, "Back to
You," starring Kelsey Grammer of "Frasier" and Patricia Heaton of "Raymond."
