A busy new face for fall with NBC's "Whitney" (she also created CBS' "2 Broke Girls," which also debuts this week), Cummings may be a decent comic, but her sitcom presence seems to aim far lower. Is it a good sign when a show's promos focus on a steady diet of tired, battle-of-the-sexes one-liners and three skimpy fetish outfits? It's all played for laughs, but here's hoping she has something more original to offer than that.
