ABC Renews Ken Jeong Comedy ‘Dr. Ken’ for Season Two

ABC has added to its comedy roster for the 2016-17 season by renewing first-year Ken Jeong comedy “Dr. Ken” for a second season.

Dr. Ken” has been a solid performer for ABC on Fridays this season, averaging a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall in Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. In both categories, this is the network’s best delivery in three years.

ABC has yet to make a decision on veteran comedy “Last Man Standing,” which has served as a lead-in to “Dr. Ken.”

“Dr. Ken” stars Ken Jeong as Dr. Ken, Suzy Nakamura as Allison, Tisha Campbell Martin as Damona, Dave Foley as Pat, Jonathan Slavin as Clark, Kate Simses as Julie, Albert Tsai as Dave and Krista Marie Yu as Molly.

The show, which hails from Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios, is executive produced by Mike Sikowitz, Ken Jeong, John Davis and John Fox.
