The Mob Doctor: Worth Watching? Critics Say…

Mob Doctor TV series on FOXTonight, FOX unveils their first new drama of the 2012-13 season, The Mob Doctor. The title tells us exactly what the show’s about but will viewers be interested enough to bring the new TV series adequate ratings to keep the show from being cancelled?

The TV show also features Floriana Lima, Zach Gilford, Željko Ivanek, Wendy Makkena, Jesse Lee Soffer, William Forsythe, and James Carpinello.

Is Mob Doctor worth your time? Here’s what some of the critics think:

Boston Globe: “Judging by the pilot, each week we’ll get a hospital story line in which Grace will break some rule, solve the problem, and suffer little to no consequences driving her haughty superiors — including a so-far underutilized Zeljko Ivanek — supportive colleagues, and irritated boyfriend just a little bit crazier. She will then be called upon, at the most inopportune moment — preferably during sex or a touching family moment — to handle a medical case for the mob: stitching up an enforcer or prescribing something for the boss.

My Boys

This situation comedy revolves primarily around a female sports columnist and the men in her life; her brother, friends, and a rival writer. Penelope Jane "PJ" Franklin (Jordana Spiro) isn't just sexy and smart, she's also a sports nut, great at poker, and a sportswriter for the Chicago Sun-Times. She's the best buddy to a group of guy friends, but it doesn't seem to help her to have a lasting relationship in the the dating game. The men she dates have a hard time getting used to her upfront approach and all of the other men in her life. One of PJ's friends is Bobby Newman (Kyle Howard), a sportswriter for the rival Chicago Tribune. He comes from a very wealthy family, a fact he tries to keep hidden from his friends. PJ and Bobby are instantly attracted to one another but Bobby's not sure it can work out because she's too much like "one of the guys." Brendan Dorff (Reid Scott) is a hard rock DJ who has an on-again off-again relationship with his girlfriend. This often leads him to crash at PJ's place. Mike Callahan (Jamie Kaler) works in the front office for the Chicago Cubs and is a commitment-challenged ladies man. Kenny Moritorri (Michael Bunin) owns a sports memorabilia store and can be just as socially inept as Mike. He has a love-hate relationship with Stephanie Layne (Kellee Stewart), PJ's best friend and a fellow writer.
