    Insert witty comment about the title of this show and NBC ratings here ___________.

    Really hope this does well, I love Anne Heche.

    while I’m sure it isn’t about us, shows are often named in ways that optimize our headlining. We hope that never changes!

  • Neil

    It’s Squeaky bum time for Community. Will they get renewed or will a new comedy replace them.

    The headlines just write themselves :D

    Yes, it will get renewed. If it comes down to it, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is renewed over 30 Rock. Much as I’d prefer 30 Rock renewed (though I like both shows).

    From the description, this show sounds horrible. Anne Heche is a very good actress though.

    Deadline is reporting that whitney’s chances are slim, however i hope this site is correct.

  • RyanCanada

    I feel sorry for anyone getting a show picked up by nbc, the chances of any being successful arnt too likely.

  • Xavier

    Interesting title, considering it’s probably one of the first shows that Bob Greenblatt has had full control over green-lighting.

    I’m really hoping to hear that Friday Night Dinner isn’t going ahead. Since they’ve already made staffing offers, those writers and producers will segue to the Office. And there is NO show that urgently needs new producers and writers more than the Office does (and has done for 3 seasons).

    With (fingers crossed) the godawful Mindy Kaling moving to a soon-to-be-canceled show on Fox next season… there’s hope that the Office can see some sort of return to actually being funny and worth watching again.

  • Marc

    When are they picking up RoseAnn’s Show!

  • One @ Neil

    It will probably get renewed, but Sony will be impaled on a stake and the blood money that pours from their body will be the nourishment upon which that renewal is built. (and I’d like to imagine that some form of actual blood ritual is initiated as well)

    This and Matthew Perry’s show are the next Free Agents / Mr. Sunshine.

  • r0ckmypants

    This show sounds like a cross between Englightened and Anne Heche’s life post-Ellen. I’ll pass.

  • Dan S

    I thought Save Me was the new name for Harry’s Law. I’m hoping Friday Night Dinner gets picked up since I miss Tony Shaloub since Monk was retired. With so many shows getting picked up I doubt Whitney will make the cut

  • rob60990

    I wonder whats going on with Downwardly Mobile. How can a sitcom starring both Roseanne Barr and John Goodman not be picked up?

  • Rebecca

    I’ll watch Go On (rooting for Matthew Perry) and Downwardly Mobile if it gets picked up, but I’m not planning to watch Save Me. Someone said Downwardly Mobile didn’t get picked up…I couldn’t find the article about it on Deadline.

  • Concerned Citizen

    @Rebecca

    Nothing’s been outright rejected yet, these are just some early pickups. Having said that, Deadline and Hollywood Reporter have both said that Downwardly Mobile’s chances of a pickup don’t look particularly good.

    Anyway, I’ll have some level of interest in Go On, as well as 1600 Penn, Friday Night Dinner, and Animal Kingdom if they get picked up (first looks likely, second unlikely, third maybe). This, The New Normal, and any multi-camera sitcoms I don’t expect will interest me, unless they get good reviews.

  • Fischer

    “Save Me”. Im sure those are the words the producers will be saying after their 13 episode run is over

  • Nick

    How could Downwardly Mobile not be picked up? It’s premise sounded absolutely hysterical, it stars Roseanne and John Goodman (this alone could get 20 million viewers watching the pilot), and it’s multi-cam….oh wait, it’s multi-cam. And this is NBC. Sad.
