    It's clever [and] a little dark. [29 Sep 2006, p.72]
  2. Nothing groundbreaking here, obviously, but it's still pretty funny.
  3. "Help Me Help You" has a few more surprises and comedic heft to it than expected.
  4. 50
    The show isn't a debacle, but it's a disappointing comedy that doesn't live up to an interesting premise.
  5. 40
    It’s not laugh-out-loud funny, but once in a while it’s vaguely amusing, though certainly not in a must-see sort of way.
  6. 30
    Danson throws himself into the role with good humor, but Help Me Help You yields little good humor.
  7. This comedy is just not funny.

    I like the first show. Hope it picks up with more humor and more of his therapy clients.

    First episode was kinda funny, but I could not get into the second episode. Therapy patients are too one note and so is Danson's character. Would be better if they made Danson's character less annoying and more liikeable. Also would be better with more of Jane Kaczmarek-Ted Danson dynamic. Expand
