Fall 2015 New TV Preview: Friday

TGIF

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.
