NBC is on a canceling spree. (Although NBC picked up Up All Night and Whitney for the full season, so they're on an equal pick up spree.)

Caught a little of it last night and wasn't too impressed. Kathryn Hahn is sneaky hot, though.

Not necessarily a spree. They picked up Up All Night and Whitney for full seasons. (I like UAN; Didn't give Whitney the time of day.)

Prime Suspect is the only other new show they've rolled out. No word on that yet, but since reruns of it are replacing Playboy Club, they must be happy so far.

Happy for Will Arnett. He deserves a hit show. Whitney...really? REALLY?

Hooray, just in time for the original British version to start up on BBC America! Sadly I called this when I found out there was going to be overlap between the two.

Nope, at least not according to Robert Bianco of USA Today. They can't afford to cancel too many new shows because they don't have any new ones to replace and their old ones aren't popular enough to repeat in the cancelled slot. Basically, they're stuck for the time being with the new shows and can only cancel the really, really bad ones. Otherwise, shows like 'Whitney' may have been goners long before they actually are removed.

If their Mondays were this bad, they should have just kept Heroes and taken the hit from the internet. I can't imagine the ratings they were getting with Heroes was worse if they are canning these shows.

I blame Natasha Leggero. She was awful on Last Comic Standing (which, perhaps not coincidentally, wasn't on this summer) and pretty bad from what I saw on this, too.

I have watched Whitney and they blew it. The show should be COMPLETELY centered around Whitney and her boyfriend. All the secondary characters do not need to be in each episode. I think the two of them have decent chemistry and could be a modern "Mad About You". Just leave the secondary characters to very minor scenes until they ar eneeded down the road (if it goes that far).



Life is hilariously cruel.

I never saw this show but I loved her Comedy Central Presents special a year or two ago. She was pretty funny.

The problem with most American adaptations of BBC shows is that they never live up to the spirit of the original version. There are more failures (Coupling, Red Dwarf pilot, Men Behaving Badly, the group of failed Fawlty Towers adaptations, One Foot In The Grave/Cosby, among others) than successes (The Office, Three's Company/Man About The House, Sanford and Son/Steptoe and Son).

I did not start watching this show until a few episodes ago (not coincidentally, it wasn't until I finally got DVR [is it "got DVR" or "got a DVR" there?]) I didn't give it a chance at first because the promos looked stupid to me.
