NBC picks up three more episodes of ‘Whitney’

By Daniel S Levine,

NBC has put in an order for three more episodes of its Whitney Cummings-starring series Whitney.

Deadline reported Thursday that the multi-camera comedy will have a16-episode second season. Back in May, the show was picked up for a second season with 13 episodes. Whitney airs on Wednesdays at 8pm, the same slot the show had for its first season.

Whitney was originally supposed to air on Fridays as part of a comedy block with the critically loved Community, starting on Oct. 19. Those plans were nixed just before the scheduled date, but NBC picked Whitney to replace Animal Practice, which was cancelled after just a few episodes.

As for Community, that show will be back on Feb. 7.

Whitney has not drawn strong ratings, but its numbers have been growing lately. This week, the show drew 1.4 18-49 rating, an 8 percent gain from the week before.

The show is paired with NBC’s other multi-camera comedy, the freshman Guys With Kids, which also received an additional four episodes.

Cummings is also the co-creator of CBS’ hit 2 Broke Girls.
