THEY'D BE MAD TO LEAVE

The demise of "Mad About You" was greatly exaggerated.

The NBC sitcom will be back for its seventh season, after show stars Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser renewed their contracts Monday.

The network refused to divulge what Hunt and Reiser would earn per episode, but Media Week reported earlier this month it would cost $1 million-plus to woo Reiser, and about $1 million to get Hunt, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress on Monday night.

Whatever the price, industry analysts felt it crucial for NBC to hang on to the show after losing its top-rated comedy, "Seinfeld," whose star decided to call it quits.
