Time to enter DR. KEN into the book of life. UNDATEABLE LIVE will have to wait another week.
Here are the four possible fates for this lovable family comedy:
BUY THE DELI PLATTER AND PAY A SHIVA CALL (stick a fork in it, it's done)
WILL CELEBRATE THEIR B'NAI MITZVAH (will get to 13 on the air)
SET A PLACE AT THE SEDER TABLE (should finish full the season)
SEE YOU AT NEXT YEAR'S KOL NIDRE SERVICE (there's a second season)
I have to take some responsibility for the success of DR KEN in that Ken Jeong and I had a Twitter war the week that the series premiered. I'm certain that's what put it over the top. It was a really bad pilot but like other diverse shows (EMPIRE, FRESH OFF THE BOAT, BLACKISH) that have succeeded of late I feel part of their success is embracing traditional forms of television series. they are not trying to reinvent the wheel. ABC should continue to rebuild this TGIF night. So my apologies to Dr. Jeong...you win and:
SEE YOU AT NEXT YEAR'S KOL NIDRE SERVICE
