E! loves Whitney Cummings, and they mean it. The cable network has ordered six more episodes of the comedian's new weekly talk show, Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings, TV Guide Magazine has learned.
Cummings, who also stars on the NBC sitcom Whitney, has been moonlighting on the E! show since November. E! initially gave a six-episode order to Love You, Mean It, which airs on Wednesday nights at 10:30/9:30c, following The Soup.
The weekly series stars Cummings as she comments on headlines, topics and trends, along with sidekick Julian McCullough. Guests have included Mindy Kaling, Will Ferrell, Lizzy Caplan and Ginnifer Goodwin. According to E! brass, not only does Cummings attract E!'s normal female-skewing audience, but Love You, Mean It also has developed a strong male following.
Love You, Mean It is executive produced by Chelsea Handler, Cummings and Tom Brunelle. Cummings originally made it onto the scene as a regular round-table guest on Handler's E! series Chelsea Lately. Besides creating, executive producing and starring on Whitney, Cummings also co-created CBS' 2 Broke Girls with Michael Patrick King.
