NBC won't say season is last one for 'Frasier'

Reports of the demise of "Frasier" may be exaggerated.

There's a possibility the NBC series, widely expected to be in its final season, may be back.

In talk-show appearances last week, series star Kelsey Grammer suggested he would be willing to return as Dr. Frasier Crane for a 12th season.

"If someone called and said, 'We really want you back for another year,' I'd probably figure out some way to make that happen," he said early last week on CBS's "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn." "But that call hasn't come."

NBC, however, has yet to officially deem this the final year for "Frasier." And there's precedent for a resurrection -- NBC's "Friends" was expected to wrap last season but came back for one more year.

"The door is still ajar, and you know what happened the last time I left the door ajar," NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker told Daily Variety.

Network interest may be enhanced by the fact that NBC has had trouble grooming a new generation of sitcom hits, with the recent cancellation of the much-hyped "Coupling."

WQED-FM will air a one-hour special at 7 tonight in memory of Chatham Baroque violinist Emily Davidson.

The special will feature interviews with other ensemble members along with music performances.

Davidson, 36, who was one of the ensemble's founding members and its second violinist, died Nov. 2 after a battle with cancer.
