A broadcast comedy series has received a vote of confidence from its network, picking up a full-season order in its freshman season. TVLine.com reports that ABC gave a back-nine order to “Dr. Ken, bringing its first season to a full 22 episodes.
“‘Dr. Ken’ premiered strongly — 6.7 million pairs of eyeballs and a 1.5 rating — and has maintained a healthy viewership ever since,” the report notes. “The sitcom stars Ken Jeong (‘Community’) as Dr. Ken Park, a stressed-out husband and father of two with an even more stressful work environment — largely due to his own clunky bedside manner.”
