Close-Up on Becker :
Debut: Ted Danson played a legendary relief pitcher on NBC's Cheers for 11 years. Now, CBS brings him out of the bullpen to relieve cancelation casualty The Brian Benben Show. John Becker (Danson) is a curmuedgeonly Bronx doctor who, in the opener, complains about everything from "white trash" to "parasitic car salesmen." But later on, he reveals a softer side when treating an HIV-positive boy. "He wants to do the right thing as a doctor," says Danson. "But his bedside manner [stinks]." How will viewers react to his coarse remarks? Creator Dave Hackel says, "I hope people will look and say 'Finally, someone's saying what I'm thinking'."
Becker airs Monday's on CBS at 9:30 PM Eastern/Pacific
