Why does Hollywood keep green-lighting terrible shows like Whitney?

My original plan was to find a trailer as bad as this one and ask which you thought was worse. Unfortunately, after about 15 minutes of looking, I couldn’t find anything nearly as groan-inducing. I don’t know what offends me most: the terrible writing, the laugh track, or the awkward laughing. Who wants to start up a pool for when this show gets canceled? I’ve got a month.
