ABC Renews ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ and Cancels ‘Dr. Ken’

Well, you win some and you lose some … On the same day, I learned that Fresh Off The Boat was renewed for it’s fourth season and Dr. Ken was canceled after it’s second season:

“While not a ratings breakout, the show [‘Fresh Off The Boat’] has held up reasonably well across its three seasons. The third season is averaging a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 4 million viewers per episode.”

Dr. Ken also averaged a 0.9 on Fridays in its second season, making it among the tougher calls among bubble shows.”

I was kind of surprised that Dr. Ken got canceled. I mean, I have to admit – the first season was pretty bad. I watched Dr. Ken more out of obligation to support the Asian American community than anything else. But I thought second season dramatically improved (though I’m still no fan of the character Pat, nor the romance between Pat & Damona) from plots lines to the comedy. It’s too bad Dr. Ken couldn’t find an audience, but Friday evenings at 8:30 PM isn’t exactly setting up a show for success. I wish the cast & crew of Dr. Ken the best and look forward to another season of Fresh Off The Boat.
