Michael every day mines therapy for laughs

Michael: Every Day, formerly known as Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays, is a Canadian television sitcom that debuted on CBC Television in 2011.


Described by the National Post as a cross between What About Bob? and Frasier, the show stars Matt Watts as Michael, a neurotic young man undergoing regular psychotherapy, and Bob Martin as David, his therapist who views Michael as an ideal guinea pig for the experimental psychiatric techniques he hopes will turn him into a bestselling pop psychology writer. Filmed in Ottawa, the show's cast also includes Jennifer Irwin, Pablo Silveira, Martha Burns and Tommie-Amber Pirie.

The series is based in part on Watts' own past struggles with anxiety disorder.

Season 1

The series was greenlit in February 2011, shot during June of that year at an average episode budget of $150,000 and premiered on CBC on September 14, 2011 at 9PM. After two episodes, the series was moved to Tuesdays at 9PM. The show was not renewed for the 2012-13 season.

The first season was released on DVD in Canada in 2014 by VideoWorks. In 2015, it became available in the United States through Hulu. In Canada, it is available to stream through the CBC's website.

Season 2

In March 2015, the CBC announced that the series would return with six new episodes in the 2015-16 season. The new episodes were ultimately delayed, however, and premiered in January 2017 under the new series title Michael: Every Day.


The show's premiere episode received low ratings, being watched by 199,000 viewers, with the rest of the season averaging around 250,000 viewers.
