NBC Cancels Animal Practice, Replaces It With Whitney; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of October 22, 2012)

NBC announced that its second-year comedy series Whitney will return to its primetime lineup on Wednesday, November 14 at 8:00pm ET/PT replacing Animal Practice, which is now canceled. However, as of now, three more airings will air in the next three weeks (Oct. 24, 31 and Nov. 7). The ratings have been pretty bad as this past Wednesday's episode did only a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. 13 episodes were ordered, but its not known how many they have taped. We know it is at least 8.

On Whitney, Whitney Cummings stars in the title role in the multi-camera series which is a look at modern-day love and relationships which centers around Whitney (Cummings, Chelsea Lately) and Alex (Chris D'Elia), a happily - newly "married" couple. Surrounded by a quirky group of friends, Zoe Lister-Jones, Rhea Seehorn, Dan O'Brien (How I Met Your Mother), and Tone Bell (new to the second season of the show). The series is produced by Universal Television and Stuber Television. The executive producers are Scott Stuber, Quan Phung, Wil Calhoun and Barry Katz. Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld) is the director and an EP.
