Us Rating **

Lisa Kudrow can be a comic genius, but her edgy new sitcom disappoints. The most glaring problem? Her character, Fiona, an unbelievably self-absorbed therapist who counsels patients via webcam, is too one-note. And while the premise allows Kudrow to interact with guest stars in wacky situations -- tonight, she advises a woman (Rashida Jones) who may be related to her own boyfriend -- the result is often more half-baked than clever. At least married Fi's taboo flirtations with an obsessed client elicit a few laughs. (Showtime, 11 P.M.)
