Whitney Plays Sexy Nurse for Alex on the 'Whitney' Series Premiere (VIDEO)

'Whitney' (Thurs., 9:30PM ET on NBC) has been one of the most eagerly anticipated new comedies of the fall season. It's also one of two (count 'em) new comedies created by star Whitney Cummings . Alex (Chris D'Elia) and Whitney have been dating for three years now and she's starting to fret that maybe their love life's getting a bit dull. So what's a girl to do? If you're Whitney you crack open the costume box and put on your sexy nurse outfit and some killer heels to spice things up. Lucky Alex is totally onboard with all this -- "I think I got that fire you're looking for!" -- and in his haste to accompany Whitney into the bedroom he starts taking off his pants on the run. And that's where it all goes horribly, horribly wrong. //

A creator and executive producer of the CBS sitcom "2 Broke Girls" -- which premieres tonight (Monday, Sept. 19) -- the edgy stand-up comic also is creator, executive producer and star of the NBC comedy "Whitney," which launches Thursday (Sept. 22)."I have no business being on television unless it's exactly what I do on stage as a stand-up," Cummings maintains to Zap2it.

The fall show "Whitney" and the midseason series "Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea" care cut from the old-school sitcom mold -- a live audience you can hear laughing, multiple cameras and setup-punchline rhythms reminiscent of shows from NBC's comedy heyday in the '80s and '90s. Formal differences aside, though, what matters with any comedy is whether it's funny. Here are our first impressions of NBC's comedy offerings for 2011-12.The fall comedies:"Free Agents" (watch clips)The show is based on a British series about two co-workers (Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn), both of whom are coming off failed relationships, who sleep together, regret it to varying degrees and then try to figure out what their... //
