Whitney Tries to Play Sexy Nurse for Alex on the 'Whitney' Series Premiere (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 23rd 2011 9:00AM
'Whitney' S01/E01'Whitney' (Thurs., 9:30PM ET on NBC) has been one of the most eagerly anticipated new comedies of the fall season. It's also one of two (count 'em) new comedies created by star Whitney Cummings.

Alex (Chris D'Elia) and Whitney have been dating for three years now and she's starting to fret that maybe their love life's getting a bit dull.

So what's a girl to do? If you're Whitney you crack open the costume box and put on your sexy nurse outfit and some killer heels to spice things up.

Lucky Alex is totally onboard with all this -- "I think I got that file you're looking for!" -- and in his haste to accompany Whitney into the bedroom he starts taking off his pants on the run. And that's where it all goes horribly, horribly wrong.

In his eagerness Alex forgets to take off his shoes and gets his pants stuck around his ankles. Flailing, he slips up, bashes his head off of the kitchen counter and slams to the floor. We predict another nurse entering his future shortly, but one wearing scrubs this time, not lace and a frilly garter belt.

Desperate attempt to be network prime-time edgy.

Failed miserably. Seeing this scene in a preview was enough to keep me far from this show. It looks absolutely awful.

Odious show. Seems like something from the 1990s. 30Rock, please come back quick.

Lucky Alex is totally onboard with all this -- "I think I got that fire you're looking for!" -

They are looking for a file, not a fire.


All in all a decent pilot, they all had the pilot jitters and the way too big characters but Whitney and Alex had chemistry, I really want to like this show so I hope they settle down.

What? The jokes where a couple of decades old, plus there was a laugh track.
And it took a weird turn when the guy almost died...that wasn't funny, hitting your head like that can cause serious damage.

The whole thing feels dated.
