Somewhere in Hollywood, Crystal the Monkey is shedding a solitary capuchin tear. Her show Animal Practice — which also starred Justin Kirk and Joanna Garcia — was given the ol’ heave-ho today by NBC.

Mind you, NBC didn’t come right out and say that the veterinarian comedy was dead, but it says it has no plans to air episodes after November 14, when Whitney takes the freshman show’s place on the schedule.

The show is the second new TV show to be cancelled — CBS axed Made in Jersey last week.
