Whitney “Poor Whitney” season 2 episode 2 airs Wednesday November 21 at 8:00 p.m on NBC.
Synopsis: Alex (Chris D’Elia) and Whitney (Whitney Cummings) decide to share a joint checking account as Whitney is hard up for cash. The plan goes awry after she is less than impressed with Alex’s finances and from there the penny pinching begins. Meanwhile, Mark (Dan O’Brien) makes a rash decision and buys a bar to the chagrin of everyone. Rhea Seahorn and Zoe Lister-Jones also appear.
Show Summary: NBC’s multi-camera comedy “Whitney” is a hilarious look at modern day love, which centers around Whitney (Whitney Cummings, “Chelsea Lately”) and Alex (Chris D’Elia, “Glory Daze”), a happily unmarried couple. Together for three years, the duo is in no rush to get hitched, which seems to get a mixed response from their friends.
Whitney’s close circle of opinionated girlfriends include Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones, “The Other Guys”) who is sweet, upbeat and is ready to get married and Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn, “The Starter Wife”) a divorcee who is not afraid to speak her mind, but has not given up on love completely. When together they often discuss their varying relationships and how to deal with everyday life and seemingly have fun at the same time.
Completing their close-knit group is Neal (Maulik Pancholy, NBC’s “30 Rock”) a real modern day renaissance man — sensitive, cool and knows a little bit about everything and happens to be dating Lily. On the other end of the spectrum is Whitney and Alex’s next-door neighbor Mark (Dan O’Brien, “How I Met Your Mother”), a police officer and total bachelor, who claims to be the ultimate player but likes to talk a good game.
At the end of the day, Whitney and Alex realize that while their relationship might not be perfect on paper, they really do love each other — and that works for them.
