Other Options

  • Animal Practice (NBC): Series Premiere. This new comedy stars Justin Kirk (Weeds) and Tyler Labine (Reaper) as veterinarians. Kirk is great with the animals, but not so much with their owners. Plays again later. They recast the lead actress since the version of this that I saw, but the people saying the words weren’t the problem.
