Midler May Not Return Next Season

Bette Midler may not return for a second season of her CBS sitcom, regardless of whether CBS decides to pick it up,'s Roger Friedman reports, citing Bonnie Bruckheimer, who is partnered with Midler in All Girls Prods. Echoing some of Midler's own recent remarks on late-night talk shows about the difficulty of turning out a weekly sitcom, Bruckheimer told Friedman, "You have to have a new script every Monday morning! Do you know how hard that is? It's impossible."
