E! Pulls Plug on Whitney Cummings' Late-Night Show
The news comes three months after the talk show, produced by Chelsea Handler’s Borderline Amazing Productions, premiered to little buzz.
Whitney Cummings' talk show is no more.
An E! spokesperson confirms that production has wrapped and the last episode of Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings has aired. The news comes mere months after the talk show, produced by Chelsea Handler’s Borderline Amazing Productions, premiered to little buzz in late November.
The weekly series featured Cummings, alongside sidekick Julian McCullough, as she commented on headlines and trends. Guests have included Will Ferrell, Lizzy Caplan and Mindy Kaling. Love You had joined an increasingly crowded field of cable late-night efforts, which also includes series starring Andy Cohen, W. Kamau Bell, Russell Brand, Chelsea Handler and Conan O'Brien, among others.
Cummings will not want for work, however. The actress-comedienne stars in her eponymous comedy on NBC, currently in its second season, and is a co-creator of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls alongside Michael Patrick King. Although the former -- which she created, produces and stars in -- continues to struggle, garnering a weak 1.2 demo rating in its most recent airing, the latter has proved a hit for the network as well as Warner Bros, which pre-emptively sold it into syndication.
