Helen Hunt has announced that this will be the last year of her sitcom "Mad About You," which has been slipping in the ratings. She added that producers are already preparing the final episode, according to WNBC-TV News in New York. In related developments, NBC is moving "Mad" to Mondays at 9 and the struggling "3rd Rock from the Sun" to Tuesdays at 8 as part of a massive reshuffling of its Monday through Wednesday schedule, starting Dec. 14. The changes mark the first significant programming decisions made by NBC's newly installed entertainment president Scott Sassa.
