Patricia Heaton’s new show, Carol’s Second Act, is about a woman who — facing an early retirement from one career — decides to pursue an entirely new line of work rather than slipping into a more sedentary life of retirement. Heaton, of course, is certainly in a position where she could afford to rest on her laurels (and her residuals) and enjoy a life of leisure. But that’s just not in her DNA, she told us, saying that even a short break from work leaves her antsy to get back to it. (Click on the media bar below to hear Patricia Heaton)
Carol’s Second Act airs Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
