Judge Mills Lane disbarred

Paramount Domestic TV sources said Judge Mills Lane will not return
next season.

The court show -- which posted a 1.5 Nielsen Media Research household rating
for the week ending April 1 (equaling its series low) -- has completed
production on its third season. There are enough fresh episodes for Mills
to run through the May sweeps.

Word of the show's cancellation isn't a surprise: It's been expected for
several months, ever since Tribune Entertainment confirmed that it would not be
taking the series for a fourth season.
