Dr. Ken premiers 10/2 at 8:30/7:30c on ABC
Premise: The family life of a clinic doctor.
Star Power: 6.0 Ken Jeong, as he said in a commercial – he’s that guy from that thing.
Ratings Prediction: This looks unfunny and slightly offensive to doctors and probably others. Fresh Off the Boat did well for ABC, so they are probably hoping that this similar-looking program will also do well. Based on the trailer it won’t. 10% chance of renewal
People are Talking premiers 10/16 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC
Premise: Family hires a hot babysitter. That is about all I got out of the trailer.
Star Power: 6.5 Mark-Paul Gossellaar, the Ghost from Being Human (US version)
Ratings Prediction: While I like MPG, this looks like an unfocused sitcom. Is it a show about a family? Is it about friends? Will it even be funny? 10% chance of renewal.
Friday night is where you put shows you want to die. Based on the trailers of these two shows, I see why they put them there. They would be lucky if they broke a 1.0 rating.
