TV Review: ‘Dr. Ken’

TV Review: ‘Dr. Ken’
Ken Jeong was a doctor before becoming a comic and actor, a bit of biographical trivia that’s about the first and last interesting thing associated with “Dr. Ken.” Designed to trade off Jeong’s profile from “Community” and “The Hangover” movies, the sitcom does build on ABC’s recent run of shows with minority leads. And, in the search to find a mate for “Last Man Standing,” it features another father who seldom knows best. Sitting through many episodes beyond the pilot would require extremely low expectations, but at least no one would worry about fracturing their funny bone.

Jeong plays Dr. Ken Park, who still has patients despite behaving like a Don Rickles-style insult comic at work. That’s demonstrated by an opening in which he chides a man about needing a colonoscopy, which provides an excuse for a flurry of jokes regarding the targeted area, and

Dr. Ken Season 1 Review

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

In the opening scene of ABC’s new half-hour sitcom Dr. Ken, allegedly brilliant physician Ken Park diagnoses a patient suffering from hemorrhoids with a pun about him being a “Web M.D.-bag” for using the internet to self-diagnose, mimicking the patients cries of dissension as they storm out of the office, refusing his treatment. So, you may be thinking, it’s a searing look into the life of a curmudgeon doctor and his attempts at balancing family and work? No, that’s what it wants to be – House meets Modern Family – but the only condition it’ll alleviate is insomnia and the only humor it’ll rustle from you is the thought of its script getting greenlit.

ABC has been on a decent streak of family sitcoms that not only populate themselves with endearingly familiar characters, but are fueled by a certain affinity for diversity (Blackish,
