NBC star Whitney Cummings has been a lightning rod for negative attention this TV season. Sheâ€™s got two shows in prime time, both of which are part of the reason this was supposed to â€śthe season of funny women ruling prime time.â€ť Thereâ€™s reason to believe that she could have been our next funny feminist icon. The problem is that a lot of women donâ€™t like her. Or her shows.
I never thought Iâ€™d be a Whitney apologist, but I think some of the vitriol aimed at Whitney Cummingsâ€™ eponymous show is misplaced tall poppy syndrome.
Not since CougarTown has a show been more poorly titled. More
When poor execution and racial humor collide, the results tend to be pretty uncomfortable. And not in that good, “being forced to confront your own demons” sort of way. More
Try as they might, the bunnies of NBC’s The Playboy ClubÂ couldn’t shake their cute little tails long enough to keep viewers interested. But what’s Whitney doing right, then? More
Over at Slateâ€™s Browbeat blog, this seasonâ€™s crop of Whitney Cummings-penned pilots and their attendant vagina jokes have raised the question â€śsince when can you say vagina on TV?â€ť Wait a second. Why would you not be able to say vagina?
Of course you can say vagina on TV. Itâ€™s an anatomical term. You can say stomach. You can say spleen. Therefore, you can say vagina. Itâ€™s not a dirty word. Cunt is a dirty word. Pussy is a dirty word. Twat is a dirty word. Vagina is just a fact. Ladies have vaginas. Itâ€™s how it is. More
First things first: while Whitney has a lot of problems, it is, blessedly, nowhere near as bad as the godawful advertising campaign (brilliantly discussed at Splitsider and parodied by Best Week Ever) indicated. Sure, there are a lot of hacky jokes about gender (it’s funny when people act like the opposite gender from what they are!) and sure, the laugh track is grating, but I didn’t hate it nearly as much as I thought I would.

Comedian Whitney Cummings is most definitely the woman of the hour. Her eponymous half-hour comedy Whitney premieres tonight on NBC, just two days after the first ep of the show she co-created with Michael Patrick King, 2 Broke Girls. So, did this dark-haired funnylady come from nowhere, or what? Here are five things to know about Whitney: More
The fall TV season is underway and, despite the ever-lower numbers of women in the writersâ€™ rooms, itâ€™s being hailed as the year of the women: 17 out of the 25 new scripted shows on the Big Five networks are female-centered and many were created by women. In this series, comedian Leila Cohan-Miccio watches the new female-centered shows and evaluates how realistic their portrayals of women actually are. And now, the first of this week’s two Whitney Cummings-penned pilots, 2 Broke Girls. More
As we have already spent time telling you, the promotional materials for NBC’s new show Whitney make it look like the whole of the show’s “humor” lies in reiterating sexist stereotypes about men and women. Women love to shop and cry! Men love to look at boobs and watch football! And so forth. Well, the cut-ups over at Best Week Ever seem to agree with us, and they took it one step further by making some awesome Photoshopped posters that capture the ad campaign’s true spirit.
