A few months ago I had barely even heard of Whitney Cummings, and now she has her own television show, made by and about her. First of all, since when did networks start naming shows after comedians again? I’m pretty sure when Seinfeld ended, everyone just sort of agreed “okay cool, no more eponyms.” And Louie doesn’t count here – it’s cable. So what the heck is Whitney, the program and the comedienne, about? Here’s what I think we can expect based on the publicity photos.
Whitney takes place in jail, after Ms. Cummings attempts to murder her boyfriend/husband/brother who looks like the poor man’s Joey Lawrence. She was probably on her period.
