"Dr Ken (ABC)"


          

Jesus, might have been worse than Mr Robinsons.

Who told Dr that a show about a doctor with a family should be one part SeƱor Chang and one part pantomime artist?

I was hoping he'd play it much more straight.

Awful.

I didn't even tune in to watch it. Based on your comments it was what I thought it was.

Because that +1 MIGHT have a chance if they change EVERYTHING about it.

Was anything funny in it? Did you laugh out loud once?

Dave Foley was misused. And the banter is Nick-At-Day level bad.

Even Stephen Tobolowsky couldn't save it.

I hate to say it but the last multicam sitcom that's still on ABC that is tolerable is Last Man Standing - and it's pretty weak. (Love the girl who plays Mandy though http://www.mytakeontv.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/129567_1356_pre.jpg.)

Maybe single cam it?

And word is that Margaret Cho is showing up soon - not a great sign.

>him talking to his family specifically...
He gesticulated 95% of the time, and then said some very cliched things the other 5%. There are literally dozens of other shows with the same plots revolving around families on the air now.


>I even liked some of the hospital stuff....
The part were he was a total asshole to his patients? Or the part where Dave Foley did a soliloquy about being a douchebag?

>you didn't like it...cool...I can't
>"prove" you should like any it....

You could prove that you liked it at least

Tisha Campbell was bad, but moreso her character than her acting. her comedic timing is still good.

I think her name is Tamona though, so yeaa......

Thats a death blow to shows like this, especially on ABC. It was garbage I hate the son (who was great on Trophy Wife) has to be on this show. We all realize the Ken is good as a side character and now leading a show right?

I don't know if there's an Asian version of cooning, but dude has basically made a career out of it. I'd like to see him return to medicine.

i think it helps that they're quite self aware and take a different approach to the live show concept.
