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?

Michelle December 10, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Horrible..please cancel…

Ms. Not so Picky December 3, 2011 at 11:23 pm

I loved it. Guess you gotta be in the same age range.

Shadow Maximus December 3, 2011 at 10:54 pm

I love this show, I hope they bring it back for another season. It’s not all happy-go-lucky, It seems more real & up to date. It helps that Whitney is a dirty comedian too.

Alison November 17, 2011 at 8:47 pm

All I can say is thank God there are 30 Rock reruns on Comedy Central at the same time Whitney aires.

Alison November 17, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Please, please cancel Whitney! What a black mark on an historically awesome night of television. Whitney herself is not funny, but is highly annoying. Her greasy haired boyfriend needs a shave and a new wardrobe, and her pathetic little friends need acting lessons. What is NBC thinking?

Buddy Grant November 16, 2011 at 9:56 pm

NBC put a ton of ad money in Whitney and positioned it in the safest spot on it’s lineup, so the execs must really believe in it for whatever misguided reason. I suspect some kind of blackmail may be involved, perhaps involving elicit photos or a South American drug cartel.

Diane November 15, 2011 at 11:39 am

How is Whitney is still on the air! Please cancel and keep Community. I love that Up all Night will be on the Thursday line up, it will be a plus to an already great line up..

BoonDog November 14, 2011 at 5:56 pm

I’m fascinated that someone would like Whitney. It’s awful in every way, on every level. I’ve seen shows that I don’t personally like, but I can understand someone else liking. Whitney is cringe-inducing. I would love to have dinner with someone who likes Whitney. I would be fascinated at such a person.

PS. To the person who thinks the laugh track is a live audience: How dumb can you possibly be? This may be filmed in front of an audience but that is a canned, enhanced, and way overused laugh track.

Charlie2 November 12, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Not to impressed myself….

Tha Critic November 11, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Whitney is OK. But just OK. Chris D’ Elia gets some of the better lines in my opinion.

Craig November 4, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I look at the numbers, and think this show is toast, but then I see where it ranks compared to other NBC shows, and realize it is a hit for the network. At least NBC is beating CW.
