In this episode we preview ABC’s new comedy Dr. Ken. It stars Ken Jeong (Community), Suzy Nakamura (Go On), Dave Foley (NewsRadio, The Kids in the Hall), Tisha Campbell-Martin (My Wife and Kids, Martin), Jonathan Slavin (Better Off Ted, Kate Simses (Mixology), Krista Marie Yu and Albert Tsai (Trophy Wife).
Dr. Ken is about a brilliant physician with no bedside manner that’s always trying to be a good doctor, as well as a good husband and dad to his two kids. Luckily, his therapist wife is just the right partner to keep things sane.
Dr. Ken takes a fantastic cast and squanders it in the early going here with uninspired writing that leaves you wishing more than ever that ABC had kept Cristela for another season.
