The ABC comedy Dr. Ken, starring Ken Jeong, has been holding it down proper on Friday nights, garnering some mad decent ratings. 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. It's funny, with a lot of heart, and worth checking out.
Dr. Ken also stars the awesome Suzy Nakamura as Ken's wife Allison, Krista Marie Yu as daughter Molly, and Albert Tsai as his son Dave. They're all great. The cast is rounded out by Tisha Campbell-Martin as Damona, Jonathan Slavin as Clark, Kate Simses as Julie and Dave Foley as Pat.
In this week's episode, "Ken Helps Pat," Ken helps Pat. Here's a preview of the episode:
