Whitney Cummings’ Talk Show ‘Love You, Mean It’ Canceled
Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings has been canceled by E! after one season.
A representative for the network confirmed that production for Cummings late-night talk show has wrapped and that the February 6 episode was its last.
The talk show premiered in November with a six-episode order and got picked up for six more episodes in January. However, the network decided not to order any more episodes.
Cummings can take comfort in the fact that, even after the cancellation of Love You, Mean It, she still has two shows on the air. Her NBC sitcom Whitney is currently in its second season, and CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, which she co-created, is also in its second season. However, Whitney is struggling in the ratings, with its most recent episode drawing only 3.59 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.
2 Broke Girls is doing much better, with Monday’s episode pulling in the highest numbers of the night with 10.90 million viewers and a 3.6 rating in the 18-49 demo.
Both shows premiered with good ratings in 2011, with Whitney beating out Community and Parks and Recreation with 6.7 million viewers and 2 Broke Girls drawing 19.2 million viewers. Since then, neither show has matched its premiere numbers – Whitney‘s second highest rated episode only received 5.79 million viewers and 2 Broke Girls’ second highest rated episode drew 12.75 million viewers.
Love You, Mean It was produced by Whitney Cummings’ fellow late-night talk show host Chelsea Handler’s company, Borderline Amazing Productions.
