NBC’s ‘1600 Penn’ Canceled, ‘Whitney and ‘Deception’ Too
We're still nervous for NBC's decision on 'Community's' fate, sure to arrive any hour now, but amid the joyous news of 'Parks and Recreation's' season 6 renewal comes the network's first comedy cancellation. Bill Pullman's presidential comedy '1600 Penn' has officially been canceled, following the peacock's decision to drop fellow struggling series 'Deception' yesterday, and now Whitney Cummings' 'Whitney.' Find out the latest NBC casualties inside!
We're on board with most of NBC's original series pickups today, as well as the breaking renewal of 'Parks and Recreation,' but the latest developments had easily been overdue. '1600 Penn' becomes the first comedy casualty of NBC's Upfront season, almost immediately thereafter followed by the reviled 'Whitney.'
'1600 Penn,' for all its lukewarm critical reception and poor ratings becomes the second major NBC series to face cancellation in the last few days, following the removal of freshman soap 'Deception' from future NBC lineups.
More announcements are yet to come, so stay tuned for the latest from NBC and tell us if you'll miss '1600 Penn' or 'Whitney' in the comments!
