What isn't going wrong in the life of Fiona Wallice? The wildly unethical Web Therapy shrink — played by Lisa Kudrow — is simultaneously dealing with a gay husband (Victor Garber), a straying boyfriend (Alan Cumming) and a mean-ass mom (Lily Tomlin) who started a rival business called Net Therapy and is now making a global killing. Plus, there's an unauthorized, scandalously unflattering musical based on Fiona's life that's heading for Broadway. But there's some good news when the Showtime improv series returns Tuesday, July 23 for Season 3 (11/10c).

12. Most Disturbing Use of Ear Muffs: Things get complicated quickly on Suburgatory when Eden — Noah's surrogate and George's lady friend — asks her baby doctor to say why having sex is good for the baby in front of Noah, George, Noah's wife Jill , George's daughter Tessa, and nosy neighbor Sheila. A fight breaks out between the overly protective Noah, George and Jill, at which point the doctor tells everyone to calm down because the baby is not reacting well to the tension. Cut to a sonogram of the fetus very clearly putting hands over his or her ears. The baby is not even born yet and needs a...

Question: What's the deal with ABC's treatment of Cougar Town? I know the ratings have been anemic, but bumping it twice for Dancing With the Stars recaps is cruel to the fans of Cougar Town, fans who waited nine months for new episodes. I waited patiently, thinking ABC had a good plan for the show and that the wait would be worth it, but instead, I'm kept waiting. They paired it with a show it doesn't match at a time slot that's not appropriate, but still, I thought: at least my show is back on, I'm hanging with the Cul-de-Sac Crew again, it'll be OK. Instead, two weeks in a row, I get the shaft. Whatever happened to the plan to pair it with Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 on Tuesdays?

Lisa Kudrow, Web Therapy
Fiona Wallice is affected, self-entitled and narcissistic. She is a former businesswoman who stumbled into therapy and then when she found other people's lives too tedious to tolerate, she modified her job into a new "treatment modality," she calls "Web Therapy." Give her three minutes and she'll give you ... something, even if it's just further confusion.
Fiona is the character Lisa Kudrow developed alongside Don Roos and partner Dan Bucatinsky for Web Therapy, an Internet series that bowed on L/Studio in three-minute bursts in 2008, and has now been converted into a cable series for Showtime by combining webisodes and fleshing out previously unseen aspects of Fiona's personal life.
At the show's heart is Kudrow, who spends nary a minute off-screen. Web Therapy (Tuesday, 11/10c, Showtime) finds Kudrow doing that thing that is uniquely hers...
