LOS ANGELES (October 18, 2012)--NBC said Thursday it's canceling its low-rated sitcom "Animal Practice."
The last episode will air Nov. 7.
The series stars Justin Kirk ("Weeds") as a veterinarian at a New York animal hospital.
His co-stars include Crystal, a Capuchin monkey with the "Hangover" movie sequel among her credits.
"Animal Practice" had the dubious distinction of annoying Olympic viewers.
NBC interrupted the Summer Games' closing ceremony to air the sitcom's debut episode.
This week, "Animal Practice" drew less than 4 million viewers, compared to the more than 14 million averaged by top-rated sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS.
"Animal Practice" will be replaced by "Whitney," starring Whitney Cummings, which returns for its second-season debut 8 p.m. Eastern, Wednesday, Nov. 14.
