Many Friday night sitcoms have come and gone on ABC in the past few years — shows like Cristela, The Neighbors, and Malibu Country. Will Dr. Ken survive to see a second season or, will it be cancelled too? Stay tuned.
Based on the experiences of creator and star Ken Jeong, Dr. Ken follows the life of a brilliant but unorthodox physician who occasionally leaves his bedside manner at home. The cast also includes Suzy Nakamura, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Dave Foley, Kate Simses, Jonathan Slavin, Albert Tsai, and Krista Marie Yu.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
