“It makes me feel gross.” Any time a woman says that about her husband touching her? Not good. Camden and Torrey haven’t slept in the same bed for six years and are on the brink of divorce. Enter Dr. Robi Ludwig, a psychotherapist with 15 years of marital counseling behind her. (Call her a Supernanny for adults.) Her exercises with the couples, who agree to undergo seven days of therapy, are a bit goofy—talking to each other through a megaphone, building a raft together—but they do lead to improved communication, which seems to be what most of the couples are lacking. To make this series something a viewer could stay committed to, though, I’d want to see some follow-up past the one-week mark. Even Star and Barbara could put the gloves down for that long.
