Aug. 8, NBC NBC is showing a sneak preview of this fall comedy after Olympics coverage and before the official time period premiere at 8 p.m. Sept. 11. Matthew Perry plays sportscaster Ryan King, who is made to attend group therapy after the death of his wife. Needless to say, he's not interested, especially after meeting the misfits in the group played by Allison Miller, Khary Payton, Suzy Nakamura, Julie White and sure-to-be-fan-fave Bret Gilman. Laura Benanti plays the therapist, Lauren. I've seen the pilot, and although I felt it was a bit manipulative, I found myself laughing at the group's antics.
