> Description 
Becker was a CBS comedy TV show that ran from November 2, 1998 to January 28, 2004, starring Ted Danson as the title character, Dr John Becker. Although a good doctor, Becker finds annoyance with the world in general, its people, and little things that irritate the heck out of him. He is also not afraid to speak his mind about anything. As such his people skills are not that good, although his patients are mostly loyal to him and keep returning to the surgery as Becker does have a caring side (although it is hard to see).

Becker attended Harvard and currently runs a medical practice in the Bronx, New York. Assisting him are head nurse Margaret Wyborn, who is one of the few people who can put up with Becker and his ways. She is married to the often mentioned but never seen Lewis. Also at the doctor's office is a rich girl known only as Linda (her surname is never revealed), who "helps" out at the office to be independent but doesn't actually do that much work.

When away from the office, Becker hangs out at a local diner, now owned by the beautiful Reggie Kostas who inherited the place from her late father. Reggie used to be a model and is not happy stuck running a diner. Becker's best friend, Jake Malinak, also works at the diner selling newspapers. Jake is blind following a car accident several years before. Also at the diner is Bob, an old high school classmate of Reggie's who is short, annoying, and refers to himself in the third person. Bob becomes the super of Becker's apartment building in the third season, although he tries to do as little work as he can. Like Linda, Bob's last name is never revealed, although we do find out his middle name is Benito.
