"Animal Practice" review by Suzanne
September 26, Wednesdays 8/7c on NBC

This is a terrible, terrible show. It was so bad, I couldn't even finish watching the whole first episode. The show takes place in a vet's office in New York City. The lead vet, George (Justin Kirk), is an egomaniac. He's a ladies' man and thinks he always knows best. Then there are other doctors, and George's ex-friend, Dorothy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher) inherits the practice, and she makes it run better. Of course, they fight about this.  It is a "zany" show with lots of silliness. Its zaniness is not as good as the Monkees, but then again it has an actual monkey!

The animals are cute. That's about all I can really say for it. How desperate is NBC? The sitcoms they canceled last year may not have been that funny, but they were way funnier than this crap.

Poor Tyler Labine...he is great but can't get a great show that doesn't get canceled. This won't be it.  It'll be lucky if it lasts until Thanksgiving.

08/21/2012 (10:30PM - 11:00PM) (Tuesday) : When successful veterinarian Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk, "Weeds") learns that his ex-girlfriend Dorothy Crane (JoAnna Garcia Swisher, "Better with You") has inherited the hospital where he works and is now his boss, he is less than thrilled. George, who would rather spend time with his animal patients than with their human owners, is a stark contrast to the cheerful and optimistic Dorothy, who immediately inserts herself into the hospital business. As the sparks fly between George and Dorothy, the rest of the staff members struggle to maintain composure and do their jobs, including Dr. Doug Jackson (Tyler Labine, "Reaper," "Sons of Tucson"), Dr. Yamamoto (Bobby Lee. "Harold & Kumar"), Juanita (Kym Whitley, "We Bought A Zoo"), Nurse Angela (Betsy Sodaro, "The Nick Show Kroll") and last but not least, "Dr. Rizzo," the resident capuchin monkey at Crane Animal Hospital and George's closest companion (Crystal, "The Hangover II," NBC’s "Community").
