Tv Season Info

Happily unmarried couple Whitney (Whitney Cummings) and Alex (Chris D'Elia) experience the highs and lows of being in a long-term relationship with laughter in the first season of "Whitney." Whitney and Alex are committed to not being married, but Whitney fears relationship boredom may bet setting in so she takes cues from couples around her and solicits advice from her friends Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn) and Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones), which results in a collection of unusual romantic gestures.

Critic Reviews for Whitney Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (16)

Whitney often feels like a series of standup jokes broken up by snippets of dialogue.

Watching Whitney is a bit like participating in a seance. It often seems that the traditional sitcom has died and you are communing with its angry ghost.

Cummings has potential, but no one could overcome these dated relationship cliches.

Whitney tries so hard to fill every second of its run-time with jokes that it never seems to stop and take note whether they're funny.

There's a fine line between being intentionally retro and evergreen and coming across as dated and Whitney is mostly in the latter category.

In the moments where the writing is able to cut through the haze of laugh tracks and callbacks, the show has some entertaining insights on how to negotiate a long-term relationship.

Whitney is self-deprecating, funny and yet likable.

The trouble with basing a show around a career-long list of one-liners is that you wind up with a bunch of characters speaking in the same, shared voice while shoehorning jokes into situations rather than letting humor arise out of situations.
