NBC Schedules Rebroadcast of New Fall Comedies Following Olympics Preview Washington Post

The new Matthew Perry sitcom "Go On" and the Justin Kirk comedy "Animal Practice," which were previewed by NBC during its Summer Olympics coverage, will be re-aired Tuesday, Aug. 21, at 10 p.m. ET, reports The Washington Post. They'll be shown following "America's Got Talent," and unlike the preview, this time there will be commercials.

"Go On," which stars "Friends" favorite Perry as a sports talk radio host who's forced into taking group therapy after his wife's death, was watched by 16 million viewers on a Wednesday night during the XXX Olympic Games coverage.

"Animal Practice" reached 13 million after the Sunday night closing ceremonies. In the workplace comedy, Kirk -- best known from "Weeds" -- plays a New York veterinarian who doesn't care for people, just their pets.
