LATEST: Actor Ted Danson is elated to learn his once-cancelled TV show BECKER has now been revived by network bosses.

Just last month (MAY03), the former CHEERS star was hit with the devastating news the show failed to make it onto CBS' autumn 2003 schedule.

But executives at the TV network confirmed on Monday (16JUN03) that they have ordered 13 episodes for the next season.

The news marks a double celebration for Danson - his wife Mary Steenburgen recently learned her drama JOAN OF ARCADIA will be picked up by the same network.
