Animal Practice: Cancelled But Not Gone Yet

NBC has cancelled their first new show of the season, Animal Practice. The move hardly comes as a surprise considering the poor ratings but many guessed the TV series would be the first one cancelled even before it premiered.

Animal Practice revolves around a talented vet (Justin Kirk) who really connects with his patients but has a hard time with human relationships. The sitcom’s cast also includes JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Tyler Labine, Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley, Betsy Sodaro, and Crystal the capuchin monkey.

NBC gave Animal Practice a high-profile preview in August, during the Olympics. Unfortunately that didn’t lead many to return last month when Animal Practice officially debuted. The ratings were bad. The first episode attracted a disappointing 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.19 million total viewers. The two subsequent episodes drew worse and worse numbers.

The peacock network is dropping Animal Practice from the schedule after November 7th, presumably once the eighth episode has aired. It’s unclear if NBC will get around to releasing the remaining five episodes of Animal Practice or if they’ve even been completed.

Beginning November 14th, the second season of Whitney will take over.

What do you think? Will you miss Animal Practice or are you glad to see it cancelled? Do you think it could have been fixed?

Samara, you don`t know what you`re talking about. There was absolutely no animal abuse at all.

This show is hilarious! I am surprised it was canceled, but not surprised due to the lack of advertising. Had it not been for Hulu, I wouldn’t have even heard of it. I just can’t stop laughing!!
