E! may have told Whitney Cummings they loved her show, but they apparently didn’t mean it.
The last episode of late- night talker “Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings” aired Wednesday.
The show was produced by Chelsea Handlers’ Borderline Amazing Productions. It had little buzz when it premiered in November. The show was sandwiched between “The Soup” and “Chelsea Lately” (starring Handler). In fact, Cummings first drew notoriety due to appearances on her apparent mentor’s show, and Handler also exec produced “Love You, Mean It.”
The most recent new episode only drew 404,000 viewers. The show’s staffers were told of the cancellation last week.
Cummings and sidekick Julian McCullough discussed headlines and trends. Guests on the show included Will Ferrell, Lizzy Caplan and Mindy Kaling. There is plenty of competition in late night, with Andy Cohen, W. Kamau Bell, Russell Brand, Chelsea Handler and Conan O’Brien all having shows on various networks.
Cummings’ “Whitney” (which she stars in) on NBC is in its second season, and she co- created “2 Broke Girls” for CBS alongside Michael Patrick King. “Whitney” has struggled, but “2 Broke Girls” has already been pre-emptively sold into syndication by Warner Bros.
