In this case, NBC cancels Animal Practice after only five episodes have aired, and I think the show could´ve developed into something, as the cast was good and the characters were trying to find their sweet spots, but the broadcast network didn´t give it a shot, and now it´s cancelling Animal Practice effective immediately.
NBC announced that its second-year comedy series “Whitney” will return to its primetime lineup on Wednesday, November 14 (8-8:30 p.m. ET) replacing “Animal Practice.”
The cancellation of Animal Practice comes as good news for Whitney, as it will move away from the dreaded Friday Night Timeslot, to be placed on Wednesdays alongside multicamera sitcom Guys With Kids.
What was Animal Practice about? Plot Synopsis
“Animal Practice” is a new comedy centering on Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk, “Weeds” “Angels in America”), a top veterinarian with an impressive list of famous animal patients at the Crane Animal Hospital – a bustling New York City veterinary practice where it often seems as if the patients are running the place. Despite his unorthodox style, George has an undeniable gift with animals of all kinds – except the human kind. Much to his chagrin, George recently learned that his ex-girlfriend, Dorothy Crane (JoAnna Garcia Swisher, “Better with You”), has inherited the family business and is now George’s boss. Whip-smart and ambitious, Dorothy shakes up the hospital as she brings order to the chaos and butts heads with George’s animal-friendly administration.
