Kelsey Grammer's big news is that he yanked Hank

On October 14, Kelsey Grammer was telling the media to tune in to his ABC sitcom Hank because the show was getting better and better. More funny, he said. Well, now that Kelsey has accepted the fact that Hank is dead and buried -- except for whatever episodes ABC burns off down the road -- Kelsey's may be singing a different tune.

Kelsey pulled the plug on Hank because it wasn't funny. That's according to an interview he did in which he claims that after the Thanksgiving episode, he returned to work and the show was just not getting any laughs. "Honestly, it just wasn't very funny ... We finished and I was like, 'Oh boy, there wasn't a laugh in the house on this one.' And I called the president of Warner Brothers ... and I said, 'Listen, when can we put a bullet in this thing?'"

Assuming that the story is accurate, it sounds a lot better than the version in which WB and ABC delivered a pink slip to Kelsey. Although considering Grammer's stature in the business (he'll show you his Emmys), it may be true that he called them before they called him.

Yeah, it's true. The interview was on Jay Leno on Friday.
