    This day is intenseee.

  • Clarke

    Though I think this announcement is one year too late, at least NBC was smart enough to see the show was never destined to become a hit. Good move.

  • hello

    The wait is unbearable, come on, Community

    Good riddance. Whitney deserved to be cancelled for replacing Animal Practice (one of the rare NBC comedies I’ve liked in the last decade.)

  • Ali

    In all fairness, they should cancel all their comedies except for Parks and Recreation and a final season for community. The rest have all faltlined at 1.0 – 1.2 or ever lower, so try something new.

  • Oliver

    It was a bad show — even if not quite as awful as some people made it out to be.

    It was just so half-baked (and dated) in every way, yet it got an inexplicably big fall launch.

    Based on the original clip they provided of Whitney, I’d say this is two years too late! ;)

  • Michael

    Safe to say, Whitney should just continue working behind the scenes. First her talk show was canceled, now her sitcom.

  • Marius

    Finally.

    I don’t find Whitney funny. At all.

  • Oliver

    Also, Chris D’Elia taking a lead in NBC’s Bill Lawrence pilot was an incredibly strong hint that this was coming.

  • Survivor Fan

    No! I wanted a third season.

  • Greg

    I watched the first two episodes. Don’t ask me why.

  • pink

    They r canceling all these shows for 2 reasons,1)because they are BAD shows and 2) to make room for and pay for their new shows.I mean Dracula alone probably costs more then a few of these canceled shows put together.

  • bjssp

    Doesn’t this make it like NBC orders at least one new single cam in addition to SSTW?

  • Anyway

    Maybe NBC has something of dignity after all.
    Now cancel Community and Guys with Kids please :D

  • Oliver

    @Greg

    It was after The Office and you assumed there must be a reason NBC was giving it blanket promotion?

  • TVDude

    I can’t say that I’m too shocked. I thought it had a chance, but I also know that NBC didn’t care for it, as they’re trying to move the network in a different direction. Despite lower ratings, NBC pushed Go On and The New Normal because they are trying to turn the focus more toward families. Since Whitney was about a couple with no kids, it wasn’t really as relatable to the rest of their programming. The ratings for the show also made it easier for them to toss it. I doubt too many people will notice that it’s gone.

    DAMMIT!

  • MJDB

    Very disappointing news. I really thought this was getting renewed. While obviously not the smartest show, for two seasons it gave me just what I hoped: an enjoyable and funny show that kept me entertained every time. Hopefully the cast will move on to better things. To the cast and crew: thanks for the laughs!
