Episode 01-02: Thursday, 9/29/11:
In week two, the series came down 24% in the demo to a 2.5 rating with 5.4 million. That’s a significant loss but this is NBC and the series is still doing well comparatively. It’s actually the second-highest rated show currently on the network.
Season average: 2.9 demo with 6.12 million.

Episode 01-01: Thursday, 9/22/11
The new sitcom had a positive debut, particularly by NBC standards, with a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.84 million viewers. It improved over Community’s premiere last season by 45% in the demo (2.2 rating). On the downside, there was a loss of 17% in the demographic over the course of the episode, dipping to a 3.0 rating by 9:45pm. It’s a fair bet those viewers won’t be back next week.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Whitney TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

It’s not bad like everybody says it is. It’s amusing.

cosmo November 2, 2011 at 6:12 am

After sitting through last week’s episode, I lost 10 points off my IQ. It sucked the life out of me and I was so disgusted I had to take 2 showers after just to remove the stench of wretchedness from my body. Unfortunately, my soul cannot be cleansed from the horror that I saw.

Judy November 1, 2011 at 9:09 pm

This is so unfunny. It’s embarrassingly bad!

Fay November 1, 2011 at 3:31 pm

I have tried watching this show, even after the pilot was just awful, but I can’t do it. I don’t understand how anyone can say this show has fresh humor. It’s just not a good show. I’m utterly amazed that it’s even still on the air.

joe October 21, 2011 at 7:10 pm

This show sucks. Nothing more that needs to be said.

Lisle October 20, 2011 at 3:45 am

I agree with Deni on the audience part, the laugh prompter must be turned on after every line Whitney says. This show is awful. It was crammed down our throat for a month before the pilot aired. I watched it and was is in utter shock that they promoted this so much. I know that most sitcoms do not have oscar winning acting, but this one is horrible. If they want the show to succeed at all, they need better writing and lose all of the supporting cast. To me it is like nails on a chalk board.

Reginald Riff October 13, 2011 at 10:33 am

Bring back OUTSOURCED!!!

Whitney is horrible!!!

SJK October 2, 2011 at 11:08 am

Awful, unimaginative, and just plain hacky. It wont be back for a second season if it survives the first…

Deni October 2, 2011 at 6:24 am

I think the talent is there and they have something to work with, although not crazy about the ‘alcoholic’ girl buddy (she’s a little over the top). I enjoy the sometimes witty banter between Whitney and her boyfriend, but they definitely need to lose the ‘canned laughter’. It doesn’t sound like a ‘live audience’, but if it is, they need to find their laughs on their own without lighting up the ‘laugh prompter’. I think they over promoted it, which is what seems to happen whenever they have something that’s just mediocre.

Samara October 1, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I think the show is quite funny and amusing – and I typically don’t like sitcoms! The fact that it is actually performed in front of a live studio audience – no laugh track – makes it seem more like the shows that really were great, well over ten years ago! I don’t particularly care for Whitney Cummings’ stand-up, and disliked her from the roasts she’s always a part of, but this show has changed my mind – I think she has great comedic timing and is funny! Plus, the show seems to base much of its’ dialogue on things that people talk about in real life! I’d like to see a full season ordered!

tom October 1, 2011 at 1:08 pm

What a great show The second episode was hilarious all the way through. Fresh humor and a sweet relationship between the characters Twice as great as the first episode, which was the pilot. This show will be a thursday mainstay for years to come. Thank you Whitney Cummingsi

tobias james birum October 1, 2011 at 3:18 am

I watched the first episode and skipped the second,. The first episode was so unimaginably bad, un-funny jokes, terrible support characters, dumb story line, terrible acting, and what the hell was up with that laugh track, I don’t think anyone in the world who watched that show didn’t hear that laugh track and thought, who are you trying to kid!?!?
Having not watched the second episode I can not comment on it, but for me, and it sounds like hundreds of thousands of other people who watched that first episode, it was one and done for me.

Ziggy RouJoulet September 30, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Whitney is simply awful. What I don’t understand is why NBC has been so obnoxiously promoting this wreck, even when ALL the reviews have be soooo horrendous. If they only would put that promotional effort into a good show, it might gain viewers for somthing worth watching.

Ellen November 4, 2011 at 1:31 pm

You say wreck. But surely you meant dreck.

Librarygirl September 27, 2011 at 9:36 pm

That was the worst show ever. It reminded me of a pilot that I had to watch and review, and it was so horrible that it never aired. I don’t know who she slept with to get this show on the air, but it was one of the worst shows I have ever seen!!!

Yolanda mora September 27, 2011 at 12:19 pm

It should renewed. Great fresh show was hilarious
