"Another one bites the dust."
That was part of the tweet I wrote when I found out the next fall TV cancellation. As reported by several major outlets today, NBC has decided to cancel rookie show Animal Practice from its line-up. The comedy which featured Crystal the monkey as one of its castmembers was plagued with low ratings and continued protest from animal-rights organization, PETA.
NBC will continue to air the remaining episodes of the freshman comedy until November, when sophomore comedy Whitney will premiere its second season in the now vacant timeslot. The decision has received mixed feelings from fans as another NBC fan-loved comedy Community has been left in television limbo without a premiere date set anytime soon.
Animal Practice is the second new show to be cancelled this fall season; not including the unaired Dane Cook show which was scheduled for mid-season on NBC.
Are you surprised to see Animal Practice cancelled? Sound off in the comments and let me know what you thought about the now finished show.
