Can a monkey help bring in viewers and big ratings? NBC is apparently hoping so with their Animal Practice sitcom.
Aside from Crystal the capuchin monkey, the TV show’s cast also includes Justin Kirk, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Tyler Labine, Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley, and Betsy Sodaro.
Below are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Animal Practice will be cancelled or renewed for a second season. There are currently 13 episodes in season one and the show typically airs on Wednesday nights.

The special Olympics preview gave the show nice exposure but the numbers aren’t counted in the season averages.
Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
