Dr. Ken is a medical comedy show that aired on ABC from 2015 to 2017. The show stars Ken Jeong, known for his role in The Hangover Trilogy, as Dr. Ken Park, a brilliant yet socially awkward physician. Dr. Ken is a Korean-American, and his cultural background is one of the key aspects of the show's humor.

The show revolves around Dr. Ken's personal and professional struggles, which often intertwine. Dr. Ken is happily married to his wife Allison Park, played by Suzy Nakamura, and they have two children, Molly, played by Krista Marie Yu, and Dave, played by Albert Tsai. While his family is supportive, Dr. Ken constantly feels the pressure of being the perfect husband and father, which sometimes leads to comical situations.

At work, Dr. Ken has a diverse group of colleagues, including his loyal nurse and assistant Damona, played by Tisha Campbell-Martin, his sarcastic therapist Pat, played by Dave Foley, and his bumbling resident Hector, played by Jonathan Slavin. The cast's chemistry and interactions provide a lot of comedic moments throughout the series.

The show primarily takes place in Welltopia, the medical clinic where Dr. Ken works. It's a busy and chaotic environment full of patients with various maladies and quirky personalities. Dr. Ken's interactions with his patients often highlight his unorthodox approach to medicine, which is not always appreciated by his superiors.

Throughout the series, Dr. Ken deals with typical medical show scenarios such as hypochondriac patients, meddlesome pharmaceutical reps, and hospital politics. However, what sets Dr. Ken apart from other medical shows is its comedic approach to these issues. The show uses humor to explore relatable topics such as family dynamics, cultural differences, and career aspirations.

Despite being a comedy, Dr. Ken is not afraid to tackle serious issues. The show touches on topics such as mental illness, LGBTQ+ rights, and racism. However, the show always manages to inject some humor and lightheartedness into even the most serious subjects.

In addition to its comedic and dramatic elements, Dr. Ken also features a lot of heartfelt moments. The relationships between the characters are a highlight of the show, particularly the bond between Dr. Ken and his daughter Molly. Dr. Ken is not always the perfect father, but his love for his family is evident in every episode.

Overall, Dr. Ken is an entertaining and heartwarming show that balances humor and emotion. Ken Jeong's comedic talent shines through in every episode, but the show's diverse cast and character relationships give it depth and heart. Dr. Ken may not have lasted long on air, but it remains a beloved comedy that is worth watching.

Dr. Ken is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (44 episodes). The series first aired on October 2, 2015.
