Help Me Help You aired from September until December 2006 on ABC.
Dr. Bill Hoffman ( Ted Danson) was a famous and narcissistic New York therapist (" I have 12 degrees on the wall!"), and the author of several definitive psychotherapy texts, whose own life, predictably was a mess.Thrown out of his suburban home by his ex-wife Anne ( Jane Kaczmarek), and irate that his psychology-student daughter Sasha was dating a much older man, he spent his time counseling a small group of patients who were almost as screwed up as he was. Inger ( Suzy Nakamura) was a 25-year -old self made millionaire with no social skills or love life; Darlene ( Darlene Hunt), a sex addict who was also a therapy addict; Michael ( Jere Burns), an angry, disdainful businessman in court-ordered therapy but always on his blackberry; Jonathan( Jim Rash), a wiry, balding gay man in denial about his sexuality; and Dave ( Charlie Finn), a suicidal nebish who had jumped out of an office window only to land on his boss.

Danson goes 'au naturel'
Scott D Pierce
Published: July 28, 2006 12:00 am
PASADENA, Calif. — Ted Danson is going au naturel in his new ABC series "Help Me, Help You." He's not wearing a hairpiece, and he's not coloring his hair.
He's not completely bald, of course. But he is completely gray, a look he never had on either "Cheers" or "Becker." A look he went to some lengths to hide when he was on those shows.
"My hair became a topic of conversation in the beginning of 'Cheers,'" said Danson, who said he had a small bald spot when that show began, which he'd hide with brown coloring "and comb my hair over it."
"And then the tabloids said that I'm wearing a huge hairpiece. And I couldn't go, "No, no — 'I just color it in.' "
After "Cheers" was about five years into its run, "I indeed did have to wear a little divot hairpiece for Sam Malone. ... And then one of the tabloids airbrushed my entire head and said that I'm one of the people who is totally bald.
"And I, once again, couldn't say, 'No, no, I just wear this little ... "
At the behest of the networks involved — NBC for "Cheers" and CBS for "Becker" — Danson also colored his hair for the runs of both those shows.
Now that he's at ABC, "I'm out of the closet. It's very nice not to sit around with a bunch of ladies with silver things in my hair getting dye jobs. So I'm happy to be gray."
WITH TWO SUCCESSFUL SITCOMS under his belt, you'd think that Danson could pretty much sit home and not have to work anymore. But, at 58, he's not ready to retire.
"Yeah, I enjoy going to work. I really do like that," he said. "I love that process. And I have, like the rest of the world, mortgages to pay. There's a reason to work for me."
But, he said, his main motivation to take on "Help Me, Help You" — in which he stars as a therapist with lots of his own problems — is because he enjoys it so much.
"I love going to work and, as a group, trying to find out what's true about something, and then tilting it a little bit and being ironic or funny," Danson said. "I love that as the preoccupation of my day."
This time around, though, it's going to be a bit different. "Cheers" and "Becker" were both filmed on a soundstage in front of a live audience — on a schedule that actors love. But "Help Me" is filmed on location, with long, hard days.
The earlier shows "were three weeks on, one week off, 9-to-3 jobs. That's hardly a job," Danson said. "That's not a workaholic. That's a dilettante.
"I think I'm now about to earn my keep. ... We are doing 14-hour days and no weeks off."
DANSON HAD MET one of the creators/executive producers of his show, Jennifer Konner, although he didn't know it.
And, in the middle of the news conference, Konner piped up with, "He won't remember this, and this is actually the first time I'm telling (Danson) this, because I had to appear serious, but I was an intern on 'Cheers' for a month and a half when I was 16 years old."
"Was I nice?" Danson asked.
"You were so nice," Konner said.
"Ah, thank God," Danson said.

Darlene - Darlene Hunt
Michael - Jere Burns
ABC's development this year does its fair share of recycling, from "Men in Trees" channeling "Northern Exposure" to this in-need-of-therapy sitcom owing a debt to "Newhart." Therapy groups have long been fertile comedic ground, as has the notion of a counselor who can't follow his own advice, with Ted Danson filling those shoes here. Yet while his old-pro timing gives the show a modest lift, "Help Me Help You" provides more of an incentive to get off the couch than to plop down on one.
Series rifles through the various members under the care of Dr. Bill Hoffman (Danson), who pays lip service to all the usual self-help homilies but still pines for his ex-wife (Jane Kaczmarek, a part-timer on the show), who has hooked up with their car dealer. Bill's daughter Sasha (Lindsay Sloane), meanwhile, is keeping company with a much older fellow, adding to Bill's existential tsuris.
As for the group members, they run a fairly predictable gamut from the obviously gay guy (Jim Rash) in denial about his orientation to the fellow with anger-management issues (Jere Burns) to a multi-symptomatic sex addict (Darlene Hunt) to a suicidal office worker (Charlie Finn) who leaps out a window and lands on his boss.
Each is shown trying to put Bill's advice into action, with the best sequence involving Inger (Suzy Nakamura), a woman utterly lacking social skills with serious problems connecting with men. Asked why she's been surfing an Internet dating site that caters to Jews, she deadpans, "Because I'm not attracted to them."
Alas, that's really the show's only laugh-out-loud moment, and the supporting players are almost by definition such archetypes it will be difficult to get invested in them, putting most of the weight on Danson's shoulders. It's familiar territory for him, to be sure, though initially less interesting than his "Becker" role.
Notably, the series also repeats most of its premiere beats in the second half-hour -- in which Bill uncomfortably crashes his daughter's birthday party -- and makes a gross miscalculation by giving the gay character a sweet, doting wife, which seems more painful than funny. At this point, the show appears to be squandering Danson, who could certainly handle an extra dimension that simply isn't there.
As a practical matter, "Help Me" will need some help in a timeslot where its eventual lead-in -- another new half-hour, "The Knights of Prosperity" -- should provide a rather soft springboard.
On the plus side, this group of crazies will require years to benefit from Bill's tutelage, which, given the mortality rate of recent sitcoms, would be a nice condition to have.
A Review from The New York Times
TV Review | 'Help Me Help You'
A Therapist Who Needs a Little Help of His Own
By ALESSANDRA STANLEY
Published: September 26, 2006
Like aerobics or group sex, group therapy seems sort of vintage: maybe a lot of people are still doing it, but nobody is talking about it as much. Eventually, however, everything comes back, including platform shoes and shock treatment, so perhaps it was only a question of time before someone remade The Bob Newhart Show.
In ABC's new comedy Help Me Help You, Ted Danson plays Dr. Bill Hoffman, a New York City therapist who guides a group of full-fledged neurotics and weirdos but has a harder time dealing with his own problems, which include a failed marriage and a daughter who is in love with a psychologist old enough to be her father.
The series, which has no laugh track and is filmed with a single camera, takes a beloved sitcom from the 1970's and refashions it in the style of Arrested Development and Malcolm in the Middle. In fact, a star of that show, Jane Kaczmarek, appears on tonight's premiere episode of Help Me Help You.
Mr. Danson has some funny moments, but he is not as comfortable in a comic genre where deadpan takes the place of punch line. The sitcom's strength lies in the weaknesses of Bill's patients, a group that includes Inger (Suzy Nakamura, Dodgeball ), a socially inept 25-year-old software millionaire who hasn't had a real date in six years, and Jonathan (Jim Rash), a man who loves Broadway shows and low-fat chai and doesn't realize he is homosexual. Riffs about gays are television's new mother-in-law joke, but Mr. Rash's character finds humor by pushing the joke a little further than most.
Shopping for a salmon-colored jacket, Jonathan is confronted by his wife, who accuses him of being gay after finding pictures of naked men on his computer. Look, I think I got this random e-mail about Hurricane Katrina relief, all right, but I guess it actually said release, Jonathan stutters. Turning the tables with sarcastic bluster, he adds, If supporting New Orleans makes me gay, then yes, you caught me. I'm gay, I'm super gay, and I guess that makes Anderson Cooper gay, too.
Inger goes to the Jewish matchmaking Web site JDate to meet men, then promptly repels them. Asked if she is even at all Jewish by one man on their first date, she admits she is not and explains, I guess I find Jewish guys a lot less threatening because I'm not attracted to them.
Mr. Danson has plenty of sitcom experience: he was amusingly vain as a bartending Casanova on Cheers and entertainingly rude as a misanthropic doctor on Becker. In this loose, absurdist conceit, however, he seems too stiff, and even a little scary, almost as chilling as he was in the 1984 television movie about pedophilia, Something About Amelia.
Bill is supposed to be endearing as a brilliant, egotistical therapist who cannot listen properly when his family members speak up, and who suddenly finds himself alone and newly vulnerable at midlife.
In other words, he's not so much like Mr. Newhart's Dr. Bob Hartley as he is a slapstick version of Dr. Craig Huffstodt, the troubled therapist played by Hank Azaria on the Showtime drama Huff. As it happens, both series begin with a young man's suicide attempt: tragically, it succeeded on Huff. It fails laughably on Help Me Help You. The depiction of the psychiatrist in movies and television has evolved, and devolved, over time. The golden age of psychiatry in movies was in the 1940's and 50's, when the men next to the couch were portrayed as godlike in movies like Now, Voyager, where Claude Rains helped Bette Davis overcome all kinds of phobias and fixations, including bushy eyebrows.
By the 70's and 80's, the profession was treated less reverently on screen. For every menschy therapist like Judd Hirsch in Ordinary People, there were less flattering portraits, including Michael Caine as a cross-dressing homicidal maniac in Dressed to Kill. By then, writers like Janet Malcolm, who published her book Psychoanalysis: The Impossible Profession in 1981, were putting a spotlight on fissures in Freudian analysis. Prozac and other mood-altering drugs have further demystified and defanged the field. That may be why shrinks nowadays are mostly shown as neither gods nor monsters, but as gifted, well-meaning healers who are sometimes hobbled by their own doubts and insecurities
Huff took it seriously. Help Me Help You doesn't. It has amusing characters and a few funny turns, but Mr. Danson may need some help helping the show find a broad audience.

A Review from The San Francisco Chronicle
'Help Me Help You' -- laugh therapy for serial drama daze
September 26, 2006|By Tim Goodman
Help Me Help You: Comedy, 9:30 p.m., Tuesdays, ABC
If you are of the mind that your comedy should come with a lot of rough edges and dark pop culture callbacks, "Help Me Help You," the new Ted Danson sitcom on ABC, might not be for you. Then again, it's a lot better than expected, doesn't have a sound track and, later in October, will be paired with a goofy-funny sitcom, "The Knights of Prosperity," that just might be the perfect solution to serial drama overkill.
Much as NBC established a beachhead on Thursday nights with "The Office" and "Earl" when almost no one thought they'd work sitting all alone on a competitive night, ABC must be trying to lower expectations while simultaneously gaining confidence it can grow an audience in the Tuesday 9 p.m. block, which will ultimately house five competing (and intense) dramas.
Given that, "Help Me Help You" and "The Knights of Prosperity" are looking enticingly like a good alternative hour. And the former was helped immeasurably by a revamp to the mostly average pilot initially sent to critics. Having seen two episodes, it's safe to say that "Help Me Help You" has a few more surprises and comedic heft to it than expected (which in no way implies that Danson raised critical suspicions -- he's been great on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" -- it's just that his more mainstream network fare hasn't really taken off).
Here he plays respected group therapist Dr. Bill Hoffman, whose leadership in the field and successful books have indeed gone to his head. He's quick to reference the 12 degrees he has on the wall and his long-standing status as a preeminent psychiatrist. And though he can clearly help a ragtag bunch of misfit patients in his therapy groups, he's barely aware of his own midlife crises and immature dealings with his ex-wife, Anne (Jane Kaczmarek -- in a recurring role), and daughter, Sasha (Lindsay Sloane), who has shacked up with her much older psychology professor, Ira (Bruce Altman).
The producers not only sharpened the pilot but accentuated much of the comedy that was working while snipping that which dragged -- a very encouraging and quite rare occurrence in television. For example, in a nice twist, they have Ira absolutely idolizing Bill. So when Bill seems outraged that Sasha is compensating for his failings as a father (and there appear to be many) with her flawless relationship with a new father figure in Ira, it all gets tempered by Bill's ego when Ira fawns over him.
Danson, who has made a career out of being slightly annoyed and put out, finds a vehicle here where he can be both in control and out of control, replete with enough wisecracking and self-pitying to make the character well-rounded.
Another aspect that aids "Help Me Help You" is the pitch-perfect casting of Bill's patients. There is Jonathan (Jim Rash), who doesn't know he's gay, although it's pretty obvious to everyone else, including his wife; Inger (Suzy Naka- mura), a 25-year-old retired millionaire whose social skills are disastrous (and well played for laughs); Dave (Charlie Finn), who attempted suicide but didn't really mean it and now is in this group trying to find out his real issue (he's lost in the world); Darlene (Darlene Hunt), who has a laundry list of problems, chief among them her insatiable desire for her therapists; and, perhaps the biggest miracle casting of all, Jere Burns as Michael, whose anger management issues and general meanness have forced others to force him into counseling. Burns ("Dear John," "Good Morning Miami" and countless other roles) is at his best when he's unleashing bitterness, rather than playing sympathetic.
All of the patients are given both quirks and one-liners that are solid enough to make you want to sample "Help Me Help You" a second time (a good idea, because you still might be on the fence after the pilot, especially if you like your comedy with more elbows). Danson may have a role here that grows rather than tires, and when "Knights of Prosperity," one of the better sitcoms in a weak field, emerges in October, it might be the perfect opportunity to snag viewers who are abandoning time-consuming serial dramas in an effort to catch a self-contained laugh.
A Review from The Washington Post
THE NEW SEASON TV Preview
'Help Me': A Cure for Couch Potatoes
By Tom Shales
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, September 26, 2006; Page C01
What killed the sitcom? Could it perhaps have been . . . The Sitcom?
That's the glibly simplistic explanation, but it's hardly groundless. Situation comedies became so overwhelming in number and so formulaic in execution over the decades that the typical sitcom seemed like a revival upon arrival.
Comes now Exhibit M, N, O or P: Ted Danson starring as Dr. Bill Hoffman in "Help Me Help You," a supposedly fresh sitcom arriving on ABC tonight in a big cloud of deja vu.
One reason for that sense, albeit a fairly minor one, is that the supporting cast includes Jere Burns playing a member of a group-therapy ensemble that Hoffman runs. Burns made his first big splash in sitcomedy back in 1988 when he played, of all things, a member of a similar group-therapy ensemble, this one run by Judd Hirsch. What goes around comes around, and around, and around.
Crispy and crackling, Danson handles the role of a troubled shrink a lot better than Hirsch did. And while we're making meaningless comparisons, "Help Me" and Dr. Hoffman are several steps up from "Becker," the last Danson sitcom, wherein he played a doctor whose most bitter pill was himself, dispensed liberally.
All those similarities bring us back to "why the sitcom seems kaput." And by "the sitcom," we especially mean the sort of gang's-all-here, three-camera, "taped before a live audience" kind of sitcom that dominated prime time for most of the '70s, '80s and '90s. There are hardly any such shows among the new network series rolling out this week and next.
It's always too early to say that any TV format is dead. Even westerns might come back (on HBO, with "Deadwood," they sort of did). "Help Me," however, is not the show to do the trick for the sitcom.
The show tries to be both a comedy about Hoffman's mess of a personal life and an ensemble show about all the members of the group -- Charlie Finn as Dave, who is clumsily suicidal; Jim Rash as Jonathan, in denial about being gay; and Suzy Nakamara as Inger, who has a laundry list of Relationship Issues ("I haven't had sex since my 19th birthday"), and so on.
As for Doc Hoffman, he's going through a midlife crisis as big as his awesome black Porsche (vanity plates: "4EVRJUNG"). Having told everyone in the group, repeatedly, that they should "connect" with someone else and "make a connection" before the next session, he makes one of the klutziest connections possible, accidentally climbing into bed with his ex-wife (the imposingly hilarious Jane Kaczmarek, formerly of "Malcolm in the Middle") and the used-car salesman she is dating.
"You sold me a crappy car, and now you're diddling my wife?" That's Danson's version of "J'accuse" the next morning around the breakfast table. Yes, he's somehow still there the next morning, and so is his teenage daughter, determined to immortalize excruciating moments on her camcorder. A little later, "Help Me" becomes the season's second new sitcom to attempt variations on "Seinfeld's" famous "make-up sex" joke, with Hoffman entreating his wife to indulge in not only "make-up sex" but also "break-up sex" and "wake-up sex."
Accumulating evidence indicates that "Seinfeld" will prove to be the last great sitcom of the age of the sitcom. Or -- the last great sitcom of the second trimester of television. Maybe phrasing it as simply as possible is the best way: "the last really funny TV show." "Seinfeld's" lofty and towering status is in no way challenged by "Help Me Help You," which is also no threat to "Cheers" as Ted Danson's shining and defining career achievement.
As luck would have it, "Help Me Help You" does not face extremely stiff competition in its Tuesday night time slot, so Danson and Kaczmarek might live to spat another day, and another week, and perhaps for the entire season. Then someone can use their show as proof that sitcoms are actually alive and well after all -- even though "Help Me Help You" begins its existence half-dead and quite deadly.
Help Me Help You (30 minutes) premieres tonight at 9:30 on Channel 7.
A Review from The Tufts Daily
TV Review | Ted Danson, do we really need your 'Help' any more?
Two and a half out of five stars
Issue date: 9/29/06
Rejoice, college students! At long last, Ted Danson is finally back on television. This time, he's not playing an ex-ballplayer-turned-bartender or a disgruntled doctor. Actually...he is playing a disgruntled doctor, but now he's a psychiatrist. (On "Becker," he was just a regular physician.)
Danson returns to television on "Help Me Help You" as Dr. Bill Hoffman, a psychiatrist who just might be more messed up than his seriously messed-up patients. Hoffman holds group therapy sessions with five troubled souls every Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
Although "Help Me Help You" is not breaking any new comedic ground by covering therapy sessions, some of the characters' issues seem fresh. For instance, Inger (Suzy Nakamura) meets men on JDate, the Web site for Jewish singles, because apparently Jews are the only men who do not intimidate her. Dave (Charlie Finn), another therapy session attendee, starts visiting Dr. Hoffman after jumping out the window of his office building only to land on his boss, thus rendering the defenestration useless.
The other characters are a bit more textbook: There's your token anger management patient, a woman with every complex in the book - most glaringly, an unhealthy sexual appetite - and a gay guy in deep denial.
Meanwhile, their doctor has issues of his own: Hoffman's marriage of 20 years has crashed and burned, and, to top it off, his wife is sleeping with the guy who sold him his Volvo. In what was quickly diagnosed as a bout of "latent childhood anger over [Hoffman's] constant absence," his daughter Sasha (Lindsay Sloane) is dating her psychology professor, a man 30 years her senior.
Some parts of "Help Me Help You" are funny, though most of the show just personifies mediocrity. You can take it or leave it; the show is by no means painful to sit through, but its not a laugh-a-minute riot either.
Sitcoms don't have to be (and often aren't) full of hysterically funny moments, but they should be witty and smart - or at least goofy and irreverent. Given the nature of the show and its main characters, "Help Me Help You" should fall into the witty and smart category, but, unfortunately, its not quite there.
It remains to be seen whether or not audiences will grow to sympathize with any of these characters. Certainly, by the end of episode one, all rejoice as the suicidal guy meets a girl equally as depressed as he is, although the relationship is not multifaceted enough to evoke sincere interest just yet.
Inger is undoubtedly the most amusing character on the show: so self-aware, yet so unable to function normally in any sort of social setting. Nakamura's straight-faced delivery of her lines is well executed and provides some of the more entertaining moments on the show.
Danson has played so many cocky characters in his career that he could do the wacky narcissist thing with his eyes closed. And who can blame him? Even with a full head of grey hair, he still looks good.
Aside from his hair, his character is also a well known, well-off psychiatrist with 12 different medical degrees to his credit. It is clear that Hoffman is not used to losing, so after his wife confirms that she is leaving him, he tries to smash up his seemingly indestructible car. The scene mostly falls flat, but there is a small payoff for the viewer with a well trained eye and a basic knowledge of psychology: The license plate of his car reads "4everjung."
Ah, Carl Jung, not only are you one of the founders of modern psychology, but your name-that-is-not-pronounced-like-you-would-think finally provides a quality laugh on a not-so-spectacular sitcom.

IGN Interview: Suzy Nakamura
Help Me Help You's Inger talks World of Warcraft & more.
by Brian Zoromski
October 9, 2006 - Airing Tuesdays at 9:30pm ET/PT is the freshman ABC sitcom Help Me Help You. The single-camera comedy follows therapist Bill Hoffman (Ted Danson) as he helps his five group therapy patients and deals with his own personal issues. One of Dr. Hoffman's patients is socially inept Inger, played by Suzy Nakamura (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The West Wing). IGN TV recently had an opportunity to talk to Ms. Nakamura during a short break from filming.
In the next episode of Help Me Help You, airing Tuesday, Oct. 10, Inger gets caught up playing World of Warcraft and gets married in-game to a player by the name of "Frodo12." Inger tells her group that Frodo12 is a "high-level troll with his own island and he really cares about me." She invites Frodo12 to her real life apartment and we learn a lot about Inger and get an amusing take on World of Warcraft players.
IGN TV asked Ms. Nakamura if she based the socially stunted Inger on anyone in particular. "I know people like Inger," she replies, "but I think I've probably used a lot of different people in my life, and Inger's a composite of them. My brother used to play Dungeons & Dragons, and I remember going into the basement and watching him and his friends play. And I grew up reading comic books and playing some videogames. I have family members and I have friends who have either spent too much time by themselves in a lab somewhere, or studying one single thing where they become a little bit unsocialized. (laughs) I also know a dog who hasn't quite gotten used to his surroundings yet, so part of Inger is this dog that I know that is kind of afraid of everything. She's definitely a composite of different people -- and one animal -- in my life."
Anyone who's spent a lot of time gaming can relate to Inger and Frodo12. The episode doesn't paint gamers in a bad light, though (certainly not as bad as South Park's recent "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode). Nakamura feels that videogames and gamers in general get overly criticized. "I think it's good to concentrate on one thing when you have a passion or an interest no matter what it is. I know computer games get a lot of flack and a lot of criticism because they feel it's unsocial, but I think there's a lot of benefits to it as long as it's balanced with other things."
So far on Help Me Help You we've seen Inger go on a very awkward (and very funny) first date and try out new experiences like using public phones and the subway, experiencing the latter with all of her senses. Nakamura says that in an upcoming episode Inger "has a hugging assignment, has a lot to do with physical contact, which she needs to work on." In another episode we find out that "the only personal contact she has is yelling at someone through a wall. It's a relationship with her neighbors, but only through their common wall."
The dialogue in Help Me Help You feels very fresh and funny, sometimes sounding a little improvised. We asked Nakamura how much is scripted and made up on the fly. "The writing is fantastic -- the writers and producers are on the set while we're shooting," Nakamura says. "Sometimes we'll shoot the scene completely scripted, word-for-word, and they'll come and say, 'Now say this,' 'now say that.' So they're writing on the spot, which is great, and a lot of times they'll give us one take where they'll say, 'OK, guys, you can say whatever you want.' A lot of times it's just sort of an exercise, 'cause maybe we're losing energy and they want us to get the energy up again, but sometimes they'll find little tidbits that we say that they get to keep. So it's a collaboration, but the first thing we do is what's in the script."
The next episode of Help Me Help You, titled "Fun Run," airs this Tuesday, October 10, at 9:30pm ET/PT.
