Whitney Cummings lands E! talk show

Make room on the couch for another new talk show host!

E! has announced plans to roll out a weekly gab-fest entitled “Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings.”

The comedian’s latest vehicle, on the heels of her tepidly-received NBC sitcom, “Whitney," will be “a weekly medley of witty commentary featuring Whitney’s take on everything from the biggest pop culture and celebrity happenings, to life, relationships, sex, and more," the network says in a statement.

Cummings will host the show with just a "microphone and her laptop," but will also be "joined by celebrity guests and comedian friends.”

"Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings" will air Wednesday nights in conjunction with Joel McHale’s “The Soup” later this year, and Cummings will executive produce the project with fellow funny woman Chelsea Handler.

"I'm really excited to be able to say (almost) whatever I'd like on TV again," Cummings said of the announcement. "So thanks, E!" Looking forward to it!"

But the comedian/actress isn’t the only one thanking the network - so are Mary J. Blige, Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers and Nigel Lythgoe.

Jonas and his fairly new bride, Danielle, are set to invite fans on an intimate journey with them into their New Jersey home after two years of marriage, just as the Jonas Brothers prepare to head back into the studio to record their latest album. "Married to Jonas" kicks off in August.

But before that, R&B star Mary J. Blige takes the plunge into reality TV for “Opening Act.” She’ll join producer Antonina Armato from Rock Mafia and famed TV producer Nigel Lythgoe in a search for untapped talent via the Web.

They’ll then invite amateurs in to audition for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to open up for a musical superstar, while exploring their lives behind-the-scenes.

That show debuts in July.

    Holy Botox batman! It doesn't look good, Whit. I love her sitcom, but not the Lily/Neal thing. It was way OTT. You are engaged, break up, find out your exfiance is bi, and are totally ok with it and help him find guys in a bar? whatever...

    Also, Alex needed a good shower and shave.

      I heard that her teeth arrived an hour before she showed up for the interview. Those are some massive chompers.

    Hopefully this means her NBC sitcom will be going away. Not sure why it even premiered for that matter.
