TV show description:      
Psychiatrist Dr. Craig “Huff” Huffstodt (Hank Azaria) has been counseling patients for years. But when a 15-year-old patient commits suicide in front of him at his office, it’s Huff who’s in need of counsel — both mentally and legally.

Coming to the realization that he’s unable to save everyone, Huff re-evaluates his role as husband to Beth (Paget Bruster), father to Byrd (Anton Yelchin), son to live-in mother Izzy (Blythe Danner), and brother to Teddy (Andy Comeau).

Huff struggles not only with his relationships at home and with his patients but also with his office manager, Paula Brooks (Kimberly Russell). Offering him unsolicited advice is a Hungarian homeless man named Istvan (Jack Laufer).

Guiding Huff through the wrongful death lawsuit of the young man who took his life in his office is lawyer and best friend Russell Tupper (Oliver Platt). Russell is no stranger to a party and his assistant, Maggie (Liza Lapira), does her best to keep him on track. Unfortunately, his philandering ways lead him down an unexpected path when he meets sales rep Kelly Knippers (Faith Prince).

    Wow yes it was a great show! They always take away the good shows and leave us with the oh so fake (reality shows)!! If I have to watch one more Keeping up with the dumb ass bimbo Kardashian’s I will give up on TV for sure!!
    Where have all these very fake reality shows coming from? Has to be one of those bathroom ideas you think is good while taking a crap!! lol

    I just came across this show on Crackle. This is one of those incredibly well written and acted shows that actually make TV worth watching. What a terrible shame that it did not continue. It was in the league with West Wing and Newsroom – shows which develop an important following over time. hard to understand why one of the major networks did not grabit up. What a shame!!

    GREAT SHOW!!! I actually wrote Showtime and asked them what happen. Their response is that sometimes shows are cancelled due to actors obligations to other projects, which is the case in wonderful, but short-lived series. I was so looking forward to many more episodes, but it will not be… Hank Azaria and Oliver Platt were awesome in their individual characters, as well as their supporting cast. What a shame, because I would like to see them return to finish what they started someday, soon…
