Will ‘Dr. Ken’ Be Renewed for Season 3 on ABC?
“Dr. Ken” kicked off its sophomore season with a very significant drop of the viewing audience losing 40.17% of the viewers. But millions of devoted fans of the sitcom strive to figure out whether or not “Dr. Ken” will return for a next season on ABC, and if this happens, when to expect its release date? There has been no official announcement of renewal so far. But you can scroll down, in order to sign up for our notifications, or get acquainted with our forecast on the subject.
It’s worth noting that “Dr. Ken” is the only sitcom managed to survive after the scale cancellation, undertaken by ABC regarding several Friday sitcoms. Actually, we have been surprised concerning the decision by ABC, given the fact that “Dr. Ken” has illustrated the worst ratings even compared to other sitcoms on ABC. Against all odds, ABC had picked up “Dr. Ken” for a second season. What will happen with the comedy series this time? Let’s take a look at some indicators.
Currently, according to IMDB, “Dr. Ken” has a score of 5.6 out of 10 based on over 2,500 user votes 20 reviews from viewers and 5 reviews from critics. At the same time, according to TV.com, the sitcom has a score of 4.6 out of 10 based on 84 user ratings. The premiere episode of the second season has drawn 4.017 million viewers (-40.17% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 0.90 demo rating (-39.19%) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “Dr. Ken” Season 1 averaged a 1.10 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.27 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
As we may see, these figures are much worse compared to Season 1. So, apparently, “Dr. Ken” will be cancelled on ABC, after its second season. However, taking into account the previous decision by ABC, it’s very difficult to predict the current decision regarding this phenomenal sitcom.
“Dr. Ken” Season 2 picks up “when a job opportunity opens up at Welltopia, Pat thinks Allison would be perfect for it, but Ken isn’t so sure he wants to work so closely with his wife. Molly is stunned with her low SAT scores, and Dave has some ideas as to how to hide the results from their parents…,” according to ABC.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date
“Dr. Ken” Season 2 commenced on Sept. 23, 2016 on ABC and its debut drew over four million viewers, but has received a weak reception by critics and viewers. ABC has yet to announce the decision on renewal or cancellation of the sitcom. But despite the fact that all indicate the possible conclusion of the comedy series, we still hope that “Dr. Ken” Season 3 would take place. However, we would like to wait for the official announcement by ABC.
