Meanwhile, Peacock’s comedy casualties include White House laffer “1600 Penn.” Creator Jon Lovett tweeted: “It’s official. 1600 Penn is a cult classic.” Another frosh comedy, “Guys with Kids,” is also history.

Also axed after two seasons is “Whitney,” the rom-com starring Whitney Cummings, and “Up All Night,” which imploded last fall as the network tried to shift it from single-camera to multi-cam format.
