I don't know if I'm getting old, or what, but I just don't find
most of the sitcoms nowadays to be that funny. Sometimes "Family Guy" is funny,
but less and less so. Has everyone run out of jokes? Okay, "Curb Your
Enthusiasm" can be really funny. Frankly, I think many of the so-called dramas
like Mad Men and House are funnier than the sitcoms. I guess it must be really
hard to make me laugh.
"Whitney" tries really hard. I like the characters, and they can
be somewhat funny, but that's the best they can do. They try a bit too hard.
Maybe it will get better. Whitney is kind of loud and complains, and she has all
these cutesy faults. Her boyfriend is very nice and puts up with her. She has
various obnoxious friends. Kind of like Cougar Town, I guess? But with younger
people who aren't as funny.
I don't know why they can't make these shows as funny as great
shows from the recent past like Seinfeld, Frasier, Roseanne, Will & Grace, Drew
Carey Show, Married with Children, etc. Keep trying, writers!
