Whitney Cummings' E! talk show canceled

People didn’t love it back.

Whitney Cummings’ talk show Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings, has been canceled, EW has confirmed with E!. A spokesperson told EW the last episode aired last Wednesday, Feb. 6. The weekly show premiered just this past November and was produced by Chelsea Handler’s company Borderline Amazing Productions. Handler also served as an executive producer on the show alongside Cummings.

While her talk show may have bitten the dust, Cummings herself is doing alright. While her eponymous NBC sitcom still struggles in the ratings for season 2, the other show she co-created, 2 Broke Girls, continues to fare better.

'Breaking Bad' actor to guest on NBC's 'Whitney' -- EXCLUSIVE

NBC has been scooping up actors left and right from AMC’s Breaking Bad.

Jonathan Banks is coming to Parks & Rec. Matt Jones joined The Office spinoff full time. Bryan Cranston will direct an episode of The Office. And, of course, Giancarlo Esposito is on Revolution.

Now Dean Norris, the drama’s dogged DEA agent, has booked a guest star role on Whitney. Norris will play the father of Whitney’s boyfriend (Chris D’Elia) on an upcoming episode of the comedy. (And if you think there’s a scramble for those actors now, just wait until Cranston, Norris and Aaron Paul are released from the show after production wraps on Breaking Bad‘s final eight episodes). Whitney is moving to Friday nights this fall and the second season premieres on Oct. 19.

TV's top time-period battles this fall

With the fall TV schedule now complete (below), we get to step back and take a look at the hellish battleground that broadcast hath wrought. There’s some very tough-to-predict match-ups this fall:*

Tim Allen vs. Whitney Cummings (Fridays, 8-9): “No, my show’s lamer!” ABC and NBC have their low-expectations comedies airing on Fridays this fall, and they might run head-to-head depending on when NBC launches (ABC’s comedies premiere in November). NBC has Whitney and Community and ABC has Last Man Standing and new comedy Malibu Country. (Community fans, if your ass beat by Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, we have no words for you). At least 9 p.m. shows Shark Tank and Grimm will have half-way decent lead-ins for once. Our prediction: Edge goes to ABC.

Britney Spears vs. Christina ‪Aguilera‬: OK, so one this is kind of a cheat. The Voice and X Factor won’t air on the same nights, let along in the same time period. But if you think their lack of head-to-head scheduling will matter to the media, you deserve to be hit, baby, one more time. Everybody will obsess over how these two compare. NBC’s The Voice has the wind at its back, averaging 6.2 in the adult demo this season compared to X Factor‘s 4.4. We all want to see how Spears handles the reality show spotlight, but many wonder if she can pull off being entertaining and analytical. Mark Burnett cast The Voice with big names who are charismatic and have the cojones to criticize a singer. Simon Cowell seems to like big names — who are just big names. Prediction: You can’t hold down Xtina. READ FULL STORY

'Community' moving to Fridays this fall

Brace yourselves, Community fans.

The series is moving to Friday nights this fall.

The upside: Community will now have the perfect hit comedy lead in: Whitney!

“I know that most people in our industry think Friday is a graveyard but we don’t really believe that,” NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told EW.com on Sunday about the move. “If you don’t build it they won’t come. We got some traction with Grimm, it’s the No. 1 18-49 on Fridays. We thought if we have a base there, let’s see if we can give Grimm a lead-in with these shows that actually have fan bases — including Whitney.” READ FULL STORY
