Lisa Kudrow Returns to Primetime Comedy at Showtime

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 22nd 2010 9:15AM
Courteney Cox is whooping it up in 'Cougar Town,' Matthew Perry is shooting a pilot that may find him joining her at ABC, Matt LeBlanc is returning to the tube at Showtime, and now, Lisa Kudrow is joining her 'Friends' in a return to primetime comedy.

Showtime has reportedly picked up Kudrow's online series 'Web Therapy,' in which she plays Fiona Wallice, a therapist who gives her patients advice via a Webcam. The dark comedy revolves around the very self-interested Fiona, who thinks three minutes of Web therapy is better than 50 minutes of in-person therapy, since, to her way of thinking, regular sessions mostly consist of patients going off on irrelevant tangents.

Fiona hopes her online sessions can spark a worldwide revolution in how people seek psychiatric care, and her motives to build her brand are usually evident in her interactions with her patients.

What to Watch March 15 - 21

Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town - Tuesday March 16, 9 pm, CBC

True story: When I was in high school, I was lucky enough to be invited on a date by the new guy at school. His dad worked with CBC and our date was to be a live taping of the original 'Kids in the Hall' sketch show. My date treated me to a large soda before the show and once seated, we discovered we were not allowed to get up again until taping concluded. Long story short: I peed my pants I laughed so hard. Needless to say, I didn't get a second date. Having the Kids back on TV has been a blast, and hopefully this final episode of 'Death Comes to Town' isn't the last time we'll see them reunited.

Lisa Kudrow Who Do You Think You Are?You might say genealogical research runs in Lisa Kudrow's family.

Kudrow saw the long-running original show, which investigates the family history and genealogy of celebrities, when visiting Ireland, and decided to bring it to American audiences. The only question was, would she tell her own story on the show?

Weekend Update with Seth MeyersThere weren't a lot of surprises at NBC's "In Front" presentation this morning. As already leaked, Parks & Recreation, Heroes, and Southland have been renewed, joining the already announced 30 Rock, The Office, The Celebrity Apprentice, Friday Night Lights, The Biggest Loser and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

There's still no word on Law & Order's bid for a 20th season, nor did they clarify the fate of Chuck, though insiders feel confident both will be back. Back on the bubble is Medium, which was leaked as renewed last night, along with My Name Is Earl. Their fates are a bit more murky, especially Earl considering NBC is giving Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" a prime-time berth, apparently launching NBC's Thursday night.
