NBC has decided to cancel Animal Practice and replace it with the why was it renewed Whitney starting on November 14th. Now Animal Practice might not have been the best new show of this weak fall, but I think everyone can agree that their trained monkey Crystal is a millions times funnier, prettier and a better actress than Whitney Cummings. Seriously just when I thought that NBC got their crap together, they do this. I think the TV viewers would rather have Community come back instead of Sh!tney. Unless that unfunny comedy is being aired now to burn it off, so they can air a drama in the 8p slot on Wednesdays.
And talking about midseason NBC will have at least one hole to fill on their Thursday nights when 30 Rock says goodbye soon. Especially since they also killed off the even unfunnier Next Caller. On a positive note I enjoyed 1600 Penn and think that show has potential, but is that enough to save the network’s Thursday nights? You know since Up All Night should be renamed Down in Overnights.
If I were NBC, I would rush a pilot order for a show starring Crystal the Monkey. She needs to be back on weekly TV and NBC needs her to have one.
UPDATE: Tyler Labine Tweeted this about the cancellation, “So long @AnimalPractice. It’s been a blast and a half. Nothing sadder than cleaning out yet another trailer:(” I can’t wait for him to get a successful show for once!
