LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actress Claire Danes, who plays teen-ager Angela Chase on ``My So-Called Life,'' is mourning the apparent demise of the critically acclaimed but little-watched ABC-TV drama.

``It doesn't make any sense to me. I mean, I don't know how the Nielsen system works and you know, I can't help but take it a little personally because we work so hard on something,'' Danes said in a recent interview.

``My So-Called Life'' leaves the air after Thursday's episode, and ABC won't decide until later whether it will return. The show has been scheduled against NBC's highly rated lineup of ``Mad About You'' and ``Friends.''

“And, you know, with your hair like that? It hurts to look at you.”
