Undateable Stages Whitney Reunion

Danny Burton’s new love interest is a match made in NBC-sitcom heaven.

Whitney Cummings has joined the cast of Undateable for a multi-episode arc, TVLine has learned exclusively, reuniting her with former TV boyfriend Chris D’Elia.

Cummings will play Charlotte, a bar patron who is described as the female version of Danny who’s exactly what he’s been looking for.

The former Whitney co-stars will first be seen together in Friday’s “A Bachelorette Party Walks Into A Bar.” The Undateable writers shared a photo of Cummings at Monday’s table read:

What do you think? Did the live sitcom “take it to church” with this casting? Sound off below!

    i know i’m in the minority by i really like whitney cummings and thought they were great together on her show.

    • MeJ says:

      Agreed. Having a bigger personality around really tamped down his energy. WHITNEY got pretty good in its final season.

    • Jim Yesucevitz says:

      IMO you’re not in the minority. I loved the sitcom Whitney. They are great together. These live shows are just great. The inside jokes they throw back and forth like referring to other tv shows they’ve done are really funny too. I hope we get at least 2 more seasons of live shows.

    That’s great! I miss those two toghether

  3. Sandy Rood says:

    This is a great show! Whitney can only add to the laughs!!

  4. Reba42 says:

    So excited for this! I spent a good portion of just yesterday figuring out how I could watch Whitney online.

  5. zac says:

    i knew it was bound to happen soon. although Whitney was really bad

  6. Young Matthew says:

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Love her. Love him. Love them!

  7. Mara says:

    i thought Whitney was great! im going to tune in now and watch this show just for this!

  8. Phil says:

    Was hoping for this. I really enjoyed Whitney, though I missed the second half of season two. It’s on my list to watch on the new NBC app – if the Whitney page would EVER load.
    Still greatly enjoy Undateable – just really missing the cast. Poor Burski, Shelly and Brett hardly ever get more than two lines in an episode if they aren’t the B-plot.

    We need to take bets on how many times Whitney is going to break/How many times she calls D’Elia by his character name on their old show.

  10. Bill says:

    I never saw “Whitney” but I have to say I have become a big fan of this show. It’s consistently funny, the cast gives 110% and the live element just gives it an extra “oomph.” I hope NBC sticks with it. Their comedy slate is pretty pathetic…almost nonexistent…and if they move it from that dreadful Friday time slot the show might have a nice, long run.

  11. Carla Krae says:

    Whitney was hilarious. We still miss it.

  12. Jim svenningsen says:

    Whitney is a comic goddess. It will be great to see her on tv again. Beautiful, funny, sexy, witty, total package. She was made for tv.

  13. Ellinaras78 says:

    Just tell us the episodes so I can only watch those.

  14. Evan says:

    Dibs on the entire Whitney cast being in a shot somewhere before the episode is over.

  15. mark says:

    Love the show !!!!
    Been a fan from the start, but love the new live shows and the band’s are a fantastic touch ….!!!!

  16. Penny Powell says:

    It was incredible having Whitney Cummings on Undateable, as an on going cast member!! She is so fresh and brings so much to the show, FOR WOMEN!! The show needed a “female” Danny!

  17. Don C says:

    Is it so wrong that I love Undatable? And I adore Whitney Cummings, so I’m thrilled she’s joining the cast for awhile. Full disclosure: I loved The Whitney Cummings Show.

  18. bookgirl2 says:

    I adore Whitney Cummings and I don’t think she gets nearly enough credit/work. This is a fantastic piece of casting!

  19. NIKI says:

    Love, love, love them together!!! Hilarious!

  20. Samantha says:

    The show is now PERFECT with Whitney on board. Thanks.

  21. Jezzy says:

    She is awful. She is going to make the show unwatchable.
