Those who subscribe to the familiar adage "Dying is easy, comedy is hard" have not been hanging around lately with Ray Romano. The star and inspiration behind the hit family comedy "Everybody Loves Raymond" has discovered something far more difficult than comedy or sustaining a hit network sitcom. It's developing his Act 2. Romano is grappling with the demands of being the creative force behind TNT's "Men of a Certain Age," his first TV venture since 2005, when "Raymond" ended its nine-year run on CBS. Toning down his familiar everyman comic persona, he is leaping from the plush neon flashiness of network TV to the less glossy and more frugal regions of cable, and with a risky concept.
