The 25 Worst TV Shows of 2012

2. Animal Practice (NBC)

Stars: Justin Kirk, Joanne Garcia-Swisher, Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley, Betsy Sodaro, Tyler Labine

Everyone makes mistakes, including us. Back in September, we foolishly included NBC's Animal Practice on our list of the fall season's most anticipated TV shows. Why? Because, well, we're suckers for sight gags involving chimps using stethoscopes. Sue us.

But then, like everyone else unlucky enough to watch the first few episodes, it became clear that Animal Practice was a one-joke program, and the punch line—all hijinks carried out by humans and animals are hilarious!—was painfully obvious. Cancelled after only six episodes, Animal Practice shall forever be remembered as a humbling reminder of our sometimes questionable judgment. Hey, nobody's perfect.
