Earlier this week, I talked with Jason from TVtimesThree.com and Kyle from NoReruns.net about the latest episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Grandfathered, The Grinder, Undateable, Life in Pieces, & Dr. Ken. Be sure to check out or recommendations at the end, as well: Justified, Wayward Pines, & Ascension on DVD/Blu-ray for Jason & Kyle, plus my rec of Blindspot, the latest hit for NBC and first full-season pick up.

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? Weâ€™re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what youâ€™re choosing for tonight!
Tonight, Ken Jeong (Community) takes on his first starring sitcom role in the new series Dr. Ken. While Dr. Ken Park is a great physician, he is completely oblivious to his horrible bedside manner. The series is half office comedy/half family sitcom, following Ken as he tries to balance his work and family lives. There’s always some crazy patient or office politics to deal with at work with coworkers Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin), Clark (Jonathan Slavin, Better Off Ted), Julie (Kate Simses, Mixology), and boss Pat (Dave Foley, NewsRadio). And when Ken heads home, teenage daughter Molly (Krista Marie Yu, The Thundermans) and nerdy son Dave (Albert Tsai, Trophy Wife) keep him busy â€“ but therapist wife Allison (Suzy Nakamura, Go On) is also there to help keep him centered.
Based on tonight’s pilot, I can’t say that this is a show that I’ll be checking out every week. However, those looking for another TGIF-style family sitcom to kick off the weekend, this may be what the doctor ordered. Ken Jeong’s character is a bit more subdued from his usual films and TV roles, but those who enjoy his style of humor will probably like this role as well.
On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Ken needs a therapy session with Allison when he tires of his patients’ complaints; and Molly’s driving test makes her dad nervous that she just might pass.
Meet Dr. Ken and his family tonight on ABC at 8:31/7:31c.
I’ll be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Z Nation, and Continuum.
