This week on ABC's Dr. Ken, Ken gets druuuuuuunk... in the name of science and parenting. When Molly admits to taking a sip of beer at a party, Ken must teach her a lesson about alcohol's effects on the body.
Inspired by executive producer/star Ken Jeong's real life and career as a medical doctor, Dr. Ken follows 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.
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.

"Ken Teaches Molly a Lesson"
Airdate: Friday, October 6 (8:30-9:00pm)
Molly admits to taking a sip of beer at a party, but insists she hated it and didn’t drink the rest. While Allison is happy Molly is being honest with them, Ken is afraid of losing his little girl and uses the opportunity to explain to her what alcohol does to the body... in medical terms. His experiment goes awry when he accidentally gets blitzed and makes a fool of himself in front of her friends. Also in the episode, Dave is obsessed with an obscure scholarly author who Allison takes to see speak an hour away, only to have Dave fall asleep in the front row.
