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.
