Whitney | The A.V. Club review
"I’m not sure if Cummings’ perspective is well-defined or distinct enough to carry an entire multi-camera sitcom. And if it is, it doesn’t show in the pacing of the pilot, which ambles from setup (Whitney and Alex aren’t having enough sex) to punchline (Whitney’s sexy night of role-playing ends in injury) with little confidence.

Brian Posehn all grown up ... sort of
"I knew my kid was going to see this stuff every single day, and when he's little, he's going to want to play with it. It was a big thing for me. I was always that guy that was like, 'Hey, don't touch that.' My wife still can't believe I let my son play with my Simpsons action figures." [Read More]
