NBC Pulls 'Animal Practice,' Replaces With 'Whitney'
The sophomore comedy will take over Wednesday at 8 p.m. starting Nov. 14

Animal Practice will continue to air in the Wednesday 8 p.m. time slot until that date. The sophomore run of Whitney was originally slated to air on Fridays starting Oct. 19, but NBC said earlier this month it would hold back the scheduled return of both that series and Community, citing a desire to maximize marketing efforts for the shows.
Despite previewing out of the Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony, Animal Practice premiered to a weak 1.4 rating with adults 18-49 and 5.2 million viewers in its time period debut on Sept. 26 and fell to an anemic 1.0 rating and 3.8 million viewers in its most recent airing Wednesday.
It is the second casualty of the fall, after CBS canceled freshman drama Made in Jersey last week.
