TV critic

Millions of Olympics closing-ceremony viewers got an unwelcome taste of the tepid pilot episode in August and saw that it’s essentially “Scrubs: Veterinarians,” so now what? The favored fix — put supporting player Crystal the capuchin monkey in every scene — probably isn’t a welcome suggestion at this point. But unless the writers have seriously amped up the second episode, it will be awfully easy to opt for euthanizing the show.

Grade: D

Next: “Emily Owens, MD”
