Animal Practice is the second new fall broadcast show to get bumped off (after Made In Jersey, and midseason comedy Next Caller was canceled before airing a single episode). Given its ratings, this wasn’t a big surprise, but I liked the quirky little show. It was better than the show that followed, Guys With Kids, and far better than its replacement, Whitney.
The one good thing about this move is the pairing of two multi-camera shows. But where does that leave single-camera comedy Community? Sophomore Up All Night has been struggling in the ratings, but a second year show is less likely to get canceled and not air all its episodes. I’m guessing NBC is waiting for tonight’s numbers to make a final decision about the show. What it think is most likely: Up All Night is pulled from the schedule immediately, but the filmed episodes are held in case one of the midseason comedies (1600 Penn, Save Me) flops. Community is brought in as a replacement, either in Up All Night’s 8:30 slot, or back to its original 8:00 slot. Another outcome (less probable): Up All Night is allowed to finish out its 13-episode run, Community is held back for midseason.

Animal Practice has been a good show I’ve enjoyed and I’m not happy hearing it’s being cancelled. I watch all types of shows on primetime thanks to my Hopper DVR which offers me the PrimeTime Anytime feature. This allows me to get all four major networks recorded every night on one TV without any drama. I work at night so I never get to see what’s going on with primetime which always left a mess of shows recording. I would tie up all my DVRs trying to record my shows, and the family would be stuck watching recordings. This all came to an end when my coworker at DISH told me about the Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime feature. I can get the four major networks recorded on one TV and it lets the family continue to watch their own shows without interruption. No more timer or recording conflicts which let me and the family enjoy TV.
Waaaaaaaaa I loved this but I guess you and I were one of a few. 🙁
