    It seems like the networks cancel every single show I like. I think I’m just going to stop watching television.

  2. Renæ says

    Whitney is the best comedy on TV currently. Hands-down. Please make just one more season. Mark and Roxanne are finally together. We need to see them actually be together on the show over the course of another season. Don’t cancel it just yet.

  3. Mary J says

    You have to bring Whitney and crew back for season three; When it first aired, I was instantly hooked and got my son hooked! Please don’t cancel Whitney; its the only real comedy that I like and I haven’t missed one single episode! Love Whitney and Alex!!

  4. JJ says

    I absolutely love Whitney, its one of the few shows that I thrive on i never miss an episode, I really hope it can go another season. There is not enough comedy shows out there and I would hate two see one of the best ones be canceled.

  5. Jana Chenier says

    This show is definitely the new Seinfeld. It is the highlight of my viewing week. There have been enough very funny moments to make me watch every week. I am looking forward to the reruns.

  6. Malery says

    I really enjoy Whitney’s humor. I liked Love You, Mean It, and continue to enjoy 2 Broke Girls and Whitney. I hope I get to keep 2 out of 3.

  7. Charlie says

    Whitney is THE BEST COMEDY on TV, period. I reminds me of when Seinfeld was struggling and about to be canceled until some network executive’s wife told her husband that she liked it and it just need more time to find an audience.

    I’m a big fan of Whitney – the comic and the show and Chris is growing on me. I loved the latest episode where Whit’s boyfriend, Alex, falls off the stage giving a commencement speech. The line from the Matrix he says right before he falls off is classic. Then Whit’s laughter is horrifyingly funny. I laugh every time I think about it. Also, some situations are a fresh way to tackle old themes. How about when Whitney took off when she and Alex got mugged, leaving both Alex and the mugger completely baffled by her behavior? Overall, the topics are relevant to my life and perspective (single, somewhat-employed 30-something), they address relationships (love & friendship) in a real and humorous way. Their take on this generation’s issues with work, success and personal satisfaction is in line w/reality for many people. I like these characters and I’m invested. We don’t look alike but we feel the same in many ways. I’m in.

    It’s ironic; Whitney Cummings is a writer for 2 Broke Girls, which is much funnier than her own show. Don’t think she lasts a full 2nd season. She is funny, though.
