Whitney: Cancelled by NBC, No Third Season

The peacock network has lowered the axe on another sitcom. Whitney has been cancelled after two seasons on the air.

The show was a marginal performer last season but was given a second chance anyway. The ratings didn’t get any better in season two and actually saw a significant drop — from a 1.9 in the demo to a 1.2 rating. Total viewership for the second season averaged just 2.65 million viewers.

Whitney stars Whitney Cummings (as a fictional version of herself) and Chris D’Elia as a couple who remain committed to each other but don’t want to get married. Other castmembers include Rhea Seehorn, Zoe Lister-Jones, Dan O’Brien, and Tone Bell.

The defacto series finale of Whitney aired on March 27th.

What do you think? Did you like Whitney? Are you sorry that there won’t be a third season?

This was one of the most critically reviled shows of the last 20-30 years and obviously laughably outdated. Awkward, and probably on par with what the infamously disastrous US version of “Coupling” would have been had that gotten a whole season. You people supporting it obviously don’t get enough oxygen to your brain cells, and you probably liked/would have liked U.S. Coupling too. Get some taste.

I cannot believe it was cancelled. I actually bought both seasons on Amazon Prime. This is why I pay for specialty channels (like HBO). I am sick of liking a show and it getting cancelled. Maybe they should ask for guidance from the public before they cancel a show. I cant believe we wont see what happens with Roxanne and Mark.

AHHHHH

I LOVED this show. It’s been awhile since I was hooked on a sitcom, and this one brought me back to the genre. It took my husband a bit of time to get into it, but once hooked…he was all in and had it cued up for me when I got home. I DO think this is one that grows on you, for the simple fact that there is character development. Most of todays sitcoms have pretty flat stagnant characters that rely largely on the writers to carry the load.

I would also like to add that NBC never gave this a show a real shot…did you spend more than $3 on marketing (no, that’s not a typo…I meant three dollars)? I thought not. You are wrong to drop this show, and you were wrong to not put more marketing behind it and pair it with a hit show for at least a little while to see if it could catch the coattails of another show to give it it’s initial lift.

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!!

I love that show and I was slowly getting my friends hooked.

These days with so many shows and channels, it takes a while for people to get hooked. This one was actually really funny. I haven’t come across a scripted comedy this funny since Friends. Bah. How do we get it back? NBC needs better marketing for its funny shows.

I really can’t believe it!! Whitney was so funny! That show was something to look forward to…why? Why did you people do this! Whoever is in charge of programming should be FIRED!! Maybe cable will pick it up somehow… Now there’s not one single show worth watching on NBC. (No Body Cares!!)
