‘Imaginary Mary’ Series Premiere: What Time & Channel Is it On?

(ABC/Bob D’Amico)

Since Dharma & Greg ended in 2002, Jenna Elfman has tried and tried and tried again to find a new successful show on television. This season, she tries again with Imaginary Mary, a new ABC sitcom where she plays an adult with an imaginary friend. The pilot episode debuts on Wednesday, March 29 at 8:30 p.m. ET, but the show will move to its regular Tuesday, 9:30 p.m. ET timeslot starting on April 4. Read on for a preview of the series.

Imaginary Mary, which was at one point supposed to start in January, stars Elfman as Alice, a career woman who falls in love with Ben (Stephen Schneider). The only problem is that Ben has kids and she’s not really up to becoming a mom. So, her imaginary friend from childhood, Mary (voiced by Saturday Night Live‘s Rachel Dratch) comes back into her life. However, Alice isn’t having a nervous breakdown.

“Ultimately, it’s the metaphor of what’s going on that’s most important,” executive producer David Guarascio said at the Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour. “She is internally conflicted about being in this very new situation. She’s a fish out of water, for lack of being able to put it another way. There’s a lot to figure out. The same way that we all have an internal dialogue to try and navigate a situation, that’s really what’s going on here.”

The series was created by Guarascio with The Goldberg‘s Adam F. Goldberg and Disney animator Patrick Osborne.

Unfortunately, the show is already set up to fail, since its first season will only run nine episodes, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed in September 2016. The episode count cut was blamed on the longer-than-expected time it takes to complete the animation of Mary.

PREMIERE DATE: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

PREMIERE TIME: 8:30 p.m. ET

REGULAR TIMESLOT: Starting on Tuesday, April 4, the series will air at 9:30 p.m. ET.

CHANNEL: ABC (Click here to find your local ABC affiliate)

EPISODE DESCRIPTION: “Pilot” – “A fiercely independent career woman, Alice has her life turned upside-down when she meets Ben, a divorced father with three children, and soon falls head-over-heals for him. This triggers more upheaval when the imaginary friend she created as a child, Mary, suddenly reappears as she is nervous to meet Ben’s kids for the first time.”

Jenna Elfman as Alice

Fans of Speechless will have to wait until next week for a new episode. In it’s place tonight is the premiere of a new sitcom, Imaginary Mary, starring Jenna Elfman and Erica Tremblay. Imaginary Mary will premiere tonight at 8:30pm before settling into its regular slot of Tuesday nights at 9:30 ET/PT, beginning April 4.

Meanwhile, Jimmy bails Ray out of a get-rich-quick scheme, but also learns the reason behind his need for some fast cash.”

‘Dr. Ken’ Renewed or Cancelled: Is Ken Jeong Returning for Season 3?

Dr. Ken, the Friday night ABC sitcom starring Ken Jeong, airs its season two finale tonight, March 31. So you might be wondering if the show has been renewed. Unfortunately, ABC has still not renewed the show, but the good news is that it hasn’t been cancelled yet.

The show is on the fence, and ABC has a good reason to keep it on air. It is paired with Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing, airing on Fridays at 8:30 p.m. That show has been a success for ABC, and is finishing up its sixth season. If ABC keeps Dr. Ken alive for a third season, the network wouldn’t have to rely on a new show to fill out the second half hour of the 8 p.m. Friday timeslot.

Plus, Dr. Ken‘s ratings are petty good. According to TV By The Numbers, the March 24 episode drew 4.26 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Although it loses some of Last Man Standing‘s audience, it holds on two a majority of them as 6.05 million tuned in to the March 24 episode of Allen’s show.

TV Series Finale reports that Dr. Ken‘s season two average was 4.43 million viewers and a 0.89 rating. That means it was very close to its average viewership on March 24, when it was up against NCAA March Madness games on CBS! However, the average total viewers is off 15.9 percent compared to season one’s average.

The fact that ABC hasn’t renewed Dr. Ken yet shouldn’t make you fret. Only The Middle, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder have already been renewed by ABC.

Dr. Ken was created by Ken Jeong, John Fox and Jared Stern and is a multi-cam sitcom loosely based on Jeong’s own life as a doctor before he became a stand-up comedian. In the season finale, titled “Ken’s Big Audition,” Jeong reunites with Community star Alison Brie and Community creator Dan Harmon so the fictionalized version of himself can be cast in a comedy series set at a community college. Hey, that sounds really familiar!

The show also stars Suzy Kakamura, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Jonathan Slavin, Albert Tsai and Krista Marie Yu.
