Full disclosure: I watched every single episode of Whitney. Not because I liked the show, or remotely thought that it was at all good. In fact, it was terrible. Given how outrageous Whitney Cummings is as a stand-up, it was bizarre that her humor was so watered down for this series. But I think that's what kept me tuning in. It was like she was stuck in some sitcom hell of her own creation and each episode was one more car added to the 20-car pileup on the interstate that I couldn't turn away from. Why did she do this to herself? Is she a masochist? Actually, that might explain a lot. Or maybe I'm the masochist for willingly tuning in every week. No one here at work forced me, too, but since I've been accused of writing off shows too quickly after the pilot, I thought that since I like Cummings in general, I'd give this one a shot for a whole season as some sort of twisted experiment.
Whitney is hands down the most dreadful new show of the fall. There's really not even a question about that at all. We considered compiling a list of the worst moments from the pilot, but that would've been only one line long -- "every single excruciating second" -- and would've felt like a cop-out. So we sat through the first episode again (we're totally scarred for life now, thanks for asking) to pinpoint the show's exact problems.
