'Animal Practice': Justin Kirk + Joanna Garcia + monkey in tiny ambulance = ? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

After closing ceremonies of the Olympics on Sunday night, NBC will transition from five rings to three when it previews the first episode of its new circus-like workplace comedy  Animal Practice.  (The show premieres in its regular time slot on Sept. 26.) You will meet the gold medalist of veterinarians: the highly skilled Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk), who, alas, often receives a DNF when it comes to his people skills. That’s where Dorothy (Joanna Garcia) comes in. She just inherited his respected-but-disorganized animal hospital from her grandmother, and she’s going to run a much tighter operation. Also, George used to date Dorothy until she left him without warning or explanation two years ago, so this shouldn’t be awkward at all.

Those are pretty good numbers, but not as strong as the 16.1 million viewers and 5.6 demo rating for a similar sneak peek of "Go On" last week.NBC notes, however, that "Animal Practice" had similar retention rate to the "Go On" preview: 49 percent of the 18-49 audience in the half-hour prior to the preview stuck around Sunday vs. 54 percent for "Go On." How NBC scheduled the night, though, left a lot of people scratching their heads. After a 90-minute special called "London Gold" that started at 7 p.m. ET, the network showed an abbreviated version of the closing... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/08/animal-practice-preview-gets-decent-numbers-after-olympics.html
