Lisa Kudrow, 'Chelsea Lately'The idea behind 'Web Therapy' is completely ludicrous, which is exactly why Lisa Kudrow developed it. She explained on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) the train of thought that lead to the original web series.

"People do just about everything on the Internet that's intimate and maybe very personal, and maybe they shouldn't," she said. "So I just thought the dumbest thing in the world would be to do therapy on the Internet."

She settled on three-minute sessions to up the ridiculous factor and because "You also do things really quickly on the Internet."

It's certainly worked in making us think her character, Fiona, is delusional for thinking this can work, and then leaving us astonished when it actually does.

'Web Therapy' is certainly one of the most unique presentations on television, and a lot of that probably has to do with its genesis on the web, where cost considerations can lead to forced innovation.

'Web Therapy' airs Tuesdays, 11PM ET on Showtime.
