Animal Practice has been put down.
The sitcom, whose monkey got more press than any new star on NBC over the summer, garnered only 3.8 million total viewers this week. It will air its final episode on Wednesday, November 7 and be replaced a week later by Whitney.
Why not Community, fans of Greendale are likely wondering? There's no way of knowing, of course, but it's safe to assume NBC is waiting to air that beloved series on Thursday nights again, likely after 30 Rock has completed its final season.
Animal Practice is the second new show of the fall to get the axe, following CBS' Made in Jersey.
