Kaczmarek spent six years playing lovably cranky mom Lois on the Fox comedy Malcolm in the Middle. Now, she is playing the ex-wife of TV rascal Ted Danson on the ABC comedy hit Help Me Help You. The sitcom stars Danson as a neurotic psychiatrist who is constantly trying to get back together with his estranged ex.
TV.com caught up with Kaczmarek and chatted with her about her helping us help ourselves.
TV.com: It looks like you are having a lot of fun on the new show.
