My wife and I still enjoyed the second episode. So far, we are enjoying this series.
I don't know what all the fuss is about with regards to the live audience laughter. Yes, the audience laughter was too loud in the overall sound mix in the pilot, but it got better in the second episode. I just don't understand how some members of this forum can object so strongly to the inclusion of live audience laughter in a show.
In my younger days, I attended live studio tapings of such great shows as All in the Family, Soap, and Third Rock From the Sun. They were great experiences, and the laughter was genuine. There were many other truly great TV comedies filmed in front of a live audience, that provided me with many, many years of quality entertainment. Shows like Cheers, The Odd Couple, The Bob Newhart Show, and many more. If I had turned off those shows simply because they included audience laughter, I would have missed some of the best television comedies ever created.
Am I suggesting that Whitney is as good as All in the Family or Cheers? Of course not. But so far it is the only new comedy that, in my opinion, I could potentially watch for the whole season. The rest of the freshman shows (Two Broke Girls, Up All Night, New Girl, and Free Agents) have already had their season passes cancelled.
