Dr. Drew a series regular on MTV’s ‘Warren the Ape’

By his own admission, Dr. Drew Pinsky doesn’t exactly have a traditional medical or counseling career – and that’s true even for an on-air personality. So while it’s something of a surprise to find that he’s now treating a puppet, it’s not that much of a surprise.

The man behind and in front of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” and “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew” will appear in every episode of “Warren the Ape,” the satiric “Greg the Bunny” spinoff that will premiere on MTV this summer.

A clip from the pilot shows Pinsky doing his familiar intake session with Warren (Dan Milano), the puppet whose career has reached trainwreck status. While amusing in its own right, it’s also a rather savvy sendup of Pinsky’s shows themselves – not that Pinsky seems to mind.

“It’s been a fascinating and wonderful experience,” Pinsky said of his career today at TCA. “(I’ll take) any opportunity to use my craft to creatively change the culture in a positive way.”
