The moneyed Virginia is described as snobbish, racist, and utterly self-absorbed. But much like her son, deep down she has something resembling a heart.

Potts last appeared in ABC’s short-lived soap GCB.

Animal Practice is set to make its regular time period debut on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8/7c.

    The word is VETERINARIAN.

    Having seen the pilot, and the extremely annoying vet tech, even the addition of Annie Potts won’t induce me to give it a second chance.

  3. Trina says:

    When will some network be smart enough to give Annie Potts her own show??

  4. A says:

    Agree, Annie is hilarious and needs her own show, not another Mom role that will make her steal the whole show. But hey, Animal Hospital needs her.

  5. Jonathon says:

    Great addition to the show! Looking forward to it. Love Annie Potts. The cast of this show just keeps getting better and better.
