The idea behind Carol’s Last Act is that a middle-aged woman retires from one job. Then, rather than just enjoying retirement, she embarks on a completely new career as a doctor. Patricia Heaton, who stars on the show, could undoubtedly retire after nine-season stints on both Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle, but she told us she doesn’t think she could handle having that much free time, so she’ll just keep working.
