Granted the two series aren't actually in competition, 'Community' fans grudge against 'Whitney' has just gotten even bigger. Where once both series were scheduled to debut on Friday, October 19, NBC opted to delay the launch and fit each in at a later date. 'Whitney' quickly got placement into the failing 'Animal Practice' slot, leaving 'Community' to rot until February, so how could things get any worse? When NBC orders even more scripts for the critically-maligned 'Whitney,' of course!
It's been a busy day for E!, as the network hosts its annual Upfront presentation in New York today. The celebrity-centric network unveiled a slate of nine new original scripted series. Adding to the good news was word that 'Khloe and Lamar' will be canceled after its second season. But the shoe had to drop at some point and drop it has. E! is giving Whitney Cummings a talk show.
