Whitney is a “hilarious look at modern love” and your new least favorite show.

Ems commentary: Guess what show is getting that coveted Office lead-in next season, while Community and Parks and Rec struggle in the 8 o’clock block?

That’s right, this garbage. I can’t watch it without thinking of that scene in Annie Hall where they watch Tony Roberts add various levels of laugh track to his terrible sitcom. This is what worries me about the whole push for Women in Comedy. If networks keep buying up crap like this just because it’s written by women, it’s only going to feed those misogynists like that guy who told me, “You’re hilarious, and I don’t usually think women can be funny,” as if this were a compliment.

In short, this makes Outsourced look like Airplane!. I’ll give it a chance (hey, giving Bridesmaids the benefit of the doubt really paid off!) but if this is really the funniest clip from the whole show that they could find to sell it to potential viewers, this will be my new Make A Grilled Cheese Sandwich While This Plays in the Background comedy.
