LOS ANGELES--Ted Danson can't stop helping people.

In Becker, he was a bitter, acerbic physician; in Cheers, he was a bartender; and in the upcoming ABC sitcom Help Me Help You, he plays Bill Hoffman, leader of a therapy group for people suffering from social anxiety. The show is executive-produced by Alex Reid, creator of Malcolm In the Middle, and Jennifer Konner and Alexandra Rushfield, who wrote for the Judd Apatow show Undeclared.

Danson, speaking this week at the TV Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, said he enjoys his newest role because the character is in control, but neurotic.

"I get to be the bartender, the group therapist, then I get to [be] the total idiot at the same time," the actor said. "I like playing someone who desperately wants the world to like them. That's closer to home…at least, according to my wife."

Clifford C "Cliff" Clavin, Jr
Sam (Ted Danson), a former pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, owns and runs Cheers, a cozy bar in Boston. Somewhat snobby, beautiful and intelligent Diane (Shelley Long) -- forced to become a waitress when her fiance jilts her -- constantly bickers with Sam. Eventually, they fall in love. Several wacky characters make the bar their home-away-from-home, including sarcastic waitress Carla (Rhea Perlman), beer-loving Norm (George Wendt) and Boston letter carrier Cliff (John Ratzenberger) A few seasons later, Sam sells the bar to buy a boat and sail around the world. But his boat sinks and he returns to bartending. Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), the new (more ambitious) manager, hires him back. They love to hate each other and eventually get together as well. Intro Theme: Making your way in the world today takes everything you got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, And they're always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see our troubles are all the same. You wanna be where everybody knows your name. You wanna go where people know people are all the same. You wanna go where everybody knows your name.
