On television, Douglas appeared briefly as Garry Shandling's love interest on The Larry Sanders Show, starred in the series Action with Jay Mohr, guest starred on Seinfeld, Frasier and The Drew Carey Show, and has played a public defender on several episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 2002 and 2003.

She also appeared as Mrs. Ari's sister Marci in the Season 7 finale of Entourage.

In 2006, she starred in the Lifetime TV film Not Like Everyone Else and played herself in Pittsburgh opposite Jeff Goldblum. In 2007, Douglas was added to the cast of Ugly Betty, playing Sheila, an editor for MODE magazine.

At the Walt Disney World Resort in the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park, Douglas plays Aerosmith's manager in the preshow video for the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster attraction. She later appeared in an Aerosmith music video as Liv Tyler's mother.

In April 2011, she was scheduled to begin a potentially recurring role on the CW drama series Gossip Girl as Lily's older sister, Carol, though Sheila Kelley replaced her as Carol due to scheduling conflicts.
