    Proves that a conventionally made sitcom can still produce laughter.
  2. 75
    Practice is the kind of show that will probably appeal to those who like their comedy theatrical.
  3. 50
    If someone turns down the volume, ''Out of Practice" has the potential to become a likable, if conventional, sitcom.
  4. 50
    These pros deserve better than bad jokes and swinging doors.
  5. 38
    In the first few episodes, nothing's happening. No pulse. Doctor, what's wrong? [24 Oct 2005, p.41]

    It's upsetting that the show got canceled. There are very few good comedies on television right now and this was one of them. Great, funny cast!
