A retired police officer is on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids are grateful to him for making sure they're okay, but decide it's time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa (Leah Remini), his former police partner, for help.
I rarely give new sitcoms a chance because most of them are so awful (NBC I'm talking to you) but I thought I would give Dr. Ken a chance since it comes on after Last Man Standing which I do like. The pilot was awful but I watched a few more episodes because sometimes a show improves after a few episodes. This one didn't. Ken Jeong portrays his character, who is a doctor, as some kind of college kid complete with the immaturity and unfunny comments. Why some people find him hilarious is beyond me.
As in most sitcoms these days, the wife wears the pants in the family and just doesn't seem believable as his wife. The daughter is okay, the son gives me the creeps.
The staff at the hospital aren't bad except for the young, female doctor with the long brown hair who apparently is a total screw up in her personal life.
There is nothing remarkable about this sitcom. The writing is awful and the acting is sub-par. It reminds me of Cristela which was in the same time slot last year and was about a Hispanic family instead of an Asian one. Thankfully it was canceled after one season. I have a feeling this show will be canceled also. It appears for every new sitcom that is aired, only one or two a season are worth renewing. This isn't one of them.
