The new comedy gets the back-nine.
October 20, 2015
ABC has handed out a full season to Dr. Ken, making it this fall's first new comedy to earn the back-nine episodes. The pickup comes after a strong start for the show on Friday nights in the time slot following Last Man Standing, where it has become one of the top-performing freshman comedies of the 2015-2016 season.
Today's pickup gives Dr. Ken a total of 22 episodes for the season.

The show isn't nearly as bad as things like Mr Robinson or The Carmichael Show on NBC... but it's not great either. Thing is Ken Jong is a SUPPORTING character. He's not really the type to carry a show. He's good in 2 minute spurts as the "crazy" character (see ALL his previous work), but in 22 minute episodes the "humor" tends to wear on me. It's just not that funny. And the supporting cast isn't great either except for Tisha Campbell-Martin and Dave Foley. But Dave Foley seems to do ANYTHING thrown his way... he's the new Fred Willard :) I guess ABC needs something, anything, to fill a Friday time slot.

When I watch this one, I can't help but notice the "programming" that's been imbedded in it. That being said it does make me laugh at times.

My wife and I place bets on which shows we think will get cancelled first. Dr. Ken was my pick. I've watched little bits here and there, and it's just awful. I can't believe people are watching this. Then again, it's on right after Last Man Standing, and people are still watching that steaming pile.

It has a good cast, the stories are a bit lame, but I wish that everybody didn't talk like they're a 12 year old girl.

expected more from this series but got bored after the first 5 minutes of the episode(PILOT) who else agrees that limitless needs a full season pickup already!!!

It's on Friday, they didn't put it on T, W or Th, why?

This show is ridiculous. I couldn't even make it through the first episode. They cancel great shows, but keep this one. Idiots!

I'll watch it on my DVR now. I get so sick of watching shows and then boom they get cancelled. I know you gotta watch to keep them on but my 1 little view lol no.. I've gotten into too many shows and they abruptly stop!
