Is TV ready for a super shrink ?

From TV Squad.

Who would have thought that this year we'd have two shows on the air with the word "mental" in them?

FOX has announced their summer lineup, and it includes a new medical drama titled House. Oh, sorry, I mean it's called Mental. It's about "a dynamic, young psychiatrist who serves as Director of Mental Health Services at a Los Angeles hospital. At work he must reconcile his effective, yet highly unorthodox treatment methods with his conservative boss, hospital administrator Nora Skoff (Annabella Sciorra), a woman with whom he shares a romantic past. As Gallagher takes on new cases, he is confronted with patients battling unknown, misunderstood and often misdiagnosed conditions." House Mental will star Chris Vance.

The last show on TV about a shrink flopped, it was made a few years ago with Hank Azaria, called Huff. Maybe it's time to bring back Bob Newhart as America's favorite TV Shrink.

I Refuse to watch this program unless it's going to include at Least 10 minutes per episode of Ex-Cheerleaders handing out Zyprexa Tote bags and Nerf Balls as they're taking sales orders for Psych Drugs.

The Only portion of this Brass Plated Pharma Snow Job you Need to pay attention to, will be the Drug Company Advertising!
