Show Summary

OUT OF PRACTICE is a comedy about a family of doctors who share little in common other than their professions. The family consists of Ben Barnes, a couples counselor who is not considered to be a “real” doctor by the rest of the family; his brother Oliver, a good-looking, self-absorbed plastic surgeon; and sister Regina who works as a doctor in the emergency room. Their parents, Stewart, a gastroenterologist, and Lydia, a highly motivated cardiologist, are going through messy divorce. While Lydia’s career has eclipsed her soon-to-be ex’s, Stewart is dating his assistant Crystal, who is a patient of Oliver’s. With all of the chaos in this highly credentialed family, Ben appears to be the only grounded one.

    The funniest TV show I've seen about divorce famlies. It full laughs that won't let you quit. Henry Winkler still got it. Right on Netflix
  • This was a great show!

    I just discovered this sitcom on Netflix and it is one of the best I have ever seen. I'm so sorry it failed. Bright, witty, intelligent. Guess that's why, huh? Stockard Channing is a terrific actress - the rest of the cast is terrific too. Would love to see how the mother daughter relationship developed.

    Too bad.
  • One of the best sitcoms ever! CBS was out of their mind to cancel this. Every single episode was sitcom brilliance and there wasn't a weak link in the cast.

    I'd love to see this released to DVD eventually. With eight unaired episodes, it would be almost like a new season of the show for most people.



    By the way, the episode guide doesn't list it, but there was a 22nd episode (which based on the storyline, was meant to air as episode 22). I don't know the title, but the story went like this: While in the hospital for a hernia operation, Stewart learns that his surgeon is also Lydia's boyfriend.



    I tried sending it in, but all the "add an episode" links keep directing me back to the main page.



    Hopefully, we'll all see the full episode someday soon on DVD. Or maybe CBS will get so desperate as the strike continues on that they'll bring the show back and air the remaining episodes (just wishful thinking on my part of course).moreless

    why can't we put together a doctor's family; equipped with a pair of michievous brothers (a cosmetic surgeon and a psychiatrist), a cynical saddistic surgeon mother, a lesbian doctor sister and a father whose dating his own assistant whom had a boob job from from his own son...and yes...we have it, that's out of practice!~ the jokes are funny and the dynamics amongst the characters are well developed that is enough to keep me watching for another nine seasons! please bring the show back...it's hard enough not having much quality sitcom programmings around and good programs being x-ed early by cbs is just silly!!!!moreless
  • A show that got cancelled to early.

    I thought that Out of Practice was a really funny show and it deserved a second season. I tuned in every week that it was on because I knew that it was going to be funny. I still can not believe that CBS cancelled it to put on the New Aventures of Old Christine I do not evan think that show is half as funny as this but I can not be shocked that they cancelled it I've noticed that they tend to cancell shows I like. I thought that it had an amazing cast and they did a good job with their roles i wish that they could have done them for a little bit longer.moreless
