It looks like "The Doctor is Out" at ABC. The network is readjusting its Tuesday night schedule and its little surprise that the new Ted Danson comedy has been sent packing.
Help Me Help You was an offbeat sitcom about best-selling author and therapist Dr. Bill Hoffman (Cheers' Ted Danson) and his therapy group of misfits. The patients were ably played by Dear John's Jere Burns , Charlie Finn, Jim Rash, Darlene Hunt, and Suzy Nakamura. Ironically, Dr. Bill was probably more eccentric and self-obsessed than his collection of quirky patients. It didn't help that he had to cope with his 22-year old daughter (Lindsay Sloane), his ex-wife Anne (Malcolm in the Middle's Jane Kaczmarek) and her ever-sympathetic boyfriend Kenny (Thomas F. Wilson).
The quirky sitcom debuted on Tuesday, September 26, 2006 on ABC. It followed the hugely successful Dancing with the Stars. Help Me drew an estimated 8.5 million households that night »
