Dr. Ken Debuts With Solid Ratings – MMXLII

Dr. Ken Debuts With Solid Ratings

New ABC sitcom Dr. Ken starring Ken Jeong debuted last Friday to solid ratings and was the top scripted show of the night! This was a nice jolt for ABC, especially for debuting on a Friday night, the network its biggest Friday comedy premiere of the past three years.

Inspired by Jeong’s real life as a practicing doctor, he stars as Dr. Ken Park, a physician with bad bedside manner trying to juggle medicine and being a family man to his wife and kids — and not quite succeeding on either front. This show is also noteworthy in that it’s about a second-generation Asian American family (as opposed to Fresh Off The Boat, which is largely centered on an immigrant experience). 

It’s great to see another Asian American family bringing diversity to a TV near you!
