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?

Favorite show. Very funny and refreshingly different. Very well developed characters and great delivery.

Lissette March 26, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I love this show. I didn’t care for the first few episodes (jokes were forced and I hated the supporting characters) but the second onslaught of the season turned it around.

Also, I felt like they handled Neil’s personal conflict very well, considering it is a sitcom and not a drama. Sometimes, people do question/change their orientation unexpectedly, and very few shows illustrate this (Grey’s Anatomy did the best job of it).

Also, although it had a rough start, I love the supporting characters, especially Mark and Roxanne. I love their interactions, as well as the fact that they are not together (it would be ruined by how predictable that would be).

Also, love the Chicago scene changes that are actually OF Chicago, unlike Happy Endings, which is set in Chicago and yet never seems to show it.

LOVE WHITNEY—PLEASE RENEW!!

Dodgers March 17, 2012 at 3:23 am

With Grimm being the first to be renewed on the network this might be a big week coming up for Whitney being renewed.

Mike March 14, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I was enjoying it until recently when the writers seem to be making big changes to the show, turning one character gay all of a sudden, etc. The writing doesn’t make a lot of sense lately, where things happen that were not explained, it seems all done suddenly.

Kerri March 14, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Nice change from all the cop shows, refreshing comedy with so many true and hilarious aspects of relationships :) Would love to see it renewed for another season.

Joey March 11, 2012 at 6:39 pm

This show is insanely terrible. Can’t be canceled fast enough.

Marty March 4, 2012 at 3:07 am

Its been holding its own in its Wednesday timeslot which has super tough competition there and Universal owns it so this will be a likely renewal but NBC needs to put it in its best possible timeslot next season maybe in a block with Downwardly Mobile next fall.

Jess March 2, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Love this show, hope it isn’t cancelled.

RPA February 21, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I love this show. I hope it is back for a 2nd season. It’s a feel good show and it makes me laugh every week.

Paola Pavouris February 21, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I love this tv sitcom… I am in their age range I can totally relate.
It’s fun, hilarious and real.
Hope it gets picked for more seasons to come!!!

Blazers February 16, 2012 at 11:17 pm

Whitney is such an awesome show and an awesome growing cast.

NBC’s been struggling for years in the comedy area but they might’ve finally found a comedy to build around for the future.

uzie February 16, 2012 at 1:05 am

I love this show. She definitely has a fan in me. She cracks me up every week.
And I love the chemistry between these characters.

Barbara February 1, 2012 at 9:14 am

Love this show…..refreshing, and fun, looks great and feels real!
step out of the box….and laugh!

Don March 23, 2012 at 11:33 am

Just cancel Whitney. Pleasse! It has gotten better, but changing the Indian guy to being gay was stupid and politically correct. That pretty much killed the show for me.
