Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays is a Canadian television sitcom that debuted on CBC Television in 2011.[1]

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 who sees his therapist twice a week, 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.[1] Filmed in Ottawa, the show's cast also includes Jennifer Irwin, Pablo Silveira, Martha Burns and Tommie-Amber Pirie.


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.[2][3]

The series was not renewed for the 2012-13 season.[4]

In March 2015, the CBC announced that the series will return with six new episodes in the 2015-16 season.[5]
