USA network’s ‘Necessary Roughness’ a new TV show about a psychologist who treats athletes has a new story line featuring a personal coach.

The plot would take too long to explain but what I found most interesting was the characterization of the coach. So far it’s decidedly negative. Of course, by the end of the next few episodes that could change, but for now fans of the show probably won’t be calling to hire a personal coach.

There are probably other shows with a more positive spin on my profession but I guess I’ll have to do a search to find them.

You could argue that any publicity is good publicity, but I’m not sure that’s much of a consolation in this case. Stay tuned.
