Fall TV: The So-So, The Bad And The Ugly

October 28th, 2011 11:00am EDT
The X Factor
Thanksgiving is a few short weeks away, and before you slice into those turkeys, let’s take a look back at the new TV shows that are thriving and those that don’t have a Thanksgiving prayer. We’ll break it down by category.

Modest Hits

(We would have had a full-on “Hits” category, but there are certainly no runaways so far.) FOX’s ‘New Girl’ can be deemed a first-season success. The Zooey Deschanel comedy was the first fall series to earn a full season pickup, and for good reason: Its ratings are better than lead-in ‘Glee’ and it’s frequently tops on Tuesdays in 18-49.

NBC Cancels 'Playboy Club,' Gives Full Season Pickups To 'Up All Night' & 'Whitney'

October 4th, 2011 1:38pm EDT
The Playboy Club
NBC has canceled the first show of the 2011 season: "The Playboy Club" is kaput. On Monday night the series attracted only 3.4 million viewers. The show centered on the bunnies who worked at the famous 1960s hotspot and involved the murder of a mob boss.

On the flip side, NBC has picked up the new comedies "Up All Night" and "Whitney" for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.

"Up All Night" is an irreverent look at modern parenthood. Christina Applegate stars as Reagan Brinkley: loving wife, successful career woman, life of the party and, most recently, mom. Determined not to compromise he...

Whitney Cummings
Stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings is getting her own show on NBC this fall. Like the great stand-up comedian sitcoms Seinfeld and Roseanne, it is simply named Whitney.

Cummings plays Whitney, a woman in a long term relationship with Alex (Chris D’Elia) and no plans on marriage.

Over the summer, she met with the Television Critics Association to explain her views on humor and sitcoms. The pilot episode has her try to spice up their sex life by playing a slutty nu...
