Love, Inc. is an American television sitcom that originally aired for
one season on United Paramount Network (UPN) from September 2005 to May
2006. Although it was developed as a vehicle and sitcom debut for
Shannen Doherty, the series instead featured an ensemble cast led by
Busy Philipps, Vince Vieluf, Reagan Gomez-Preston, Ion Overman, and
Holly Robinson Peete (pictured) as five matchmakers working at a dating
agency. It suffered from low viewership despite its high ratings among
young Hispanic women; it was canceled following UPN's merger with The WB
to launch The CW in 2006. The cancellations of this and other black
sitcoms were criticized for reducing representation of African-American
characters and reducing the number of roles for African-American actors
on television. Critical response to Love, Inc. was mixed: some praised
its multi-ethnic cast, while others felt that the storylines and
characters were unoriginal and that Philipps' portrayal of her character
was unsympathetic. (
