Boston Legal: Did That Have to be the Last Episode?

December 9, 2008
After five seasons, Boston Legal said goodbye last night. As you might expect, the David E. Kelley series went out in its own quirky fashion. Did it really have to end? Boston Legal, a spin-off of The Practice, revolves around the staff of Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Alan Shore (James Spader) is the office's most controversial lawyer who takes on the most outlandish cases. His best friend is Denny Crane (William Shatner), a once-legendary litigator who exhibits outrageous behavior due to the advancement of Alzheimer's. Other partners include Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen), Paul Lewiston (Rene Auberjonois), Carl Sack (John Larroquette), and socially-inept Jerry Espensen (Christian Clemenson). Other ongoing characters have been played by Mark Valley, Julie Bowen, Gary Anthony Williams, Tara Summers, Henry Gibson, Constance Zimmer, Monica Potter, Rhona Mitra, Saffron Burrows, Meredith Eaton, Taraji P. Henson, Justin Mentell, Ryan Michelle Bathe, Betty White, and Craig Bierko. The "dramady" debuted on October 3, 2004 on ABC. Spader and Shatner won Emmys for their guest work on The Practice and they and several others went on to win awards for Legal. For its first season, the show averaged 12.5 million viewers. The ratings slowly declined each successive year and last season, Legal averaged 9.8 million. Though that's still a decent audience, ABC announced that season five would be the final one.
