    The Playboy Club closing early

    [B]'The Playboy Club' TV season's first cancellation[/B][I]NEW YORK (AP) NBC's Playboy Club is closing early.

    The network said Tuesday it is cancelling its highly-publicized new drama, "The Playboy Club," after only three episodes. Its time slot will eventually be filled by Brian Williams' new newsmagazine.

    The Monday night drama, set in the 1960s, had only 5 million viewers for its first episode two weeks ago and kept losing viewers. Nielsen said the show had only 3.5 million viewers this week.

    It's the first cancellation of the new fall TV season.[/I]



    Too funny. Who thought putting a show on network TV about Playboy would be a good idea?

    We didn't look at Playboy for the personalities, the letters, the articles, the special features, even for Heff.

    We looked at if because of teh neckedness.

    Can't imagine who at NBC greenlighted putting a show about hot naked babes on network...where you can't show hot naked babes.

    This MIGHT have been a great show for cable.

    Dumbasses.

    Don't add this to my Playboy Club thread, or anything, JS. :D

    Yeah, other than looking at the stunning Amber Heard, I was disappointed in the pilot episode. I never went back to the show.

    LOL

    Network TV just gets dumber and dumber.

    Of course this failed, maybe on HBO, Starz, ETC were you could go uncensored this would work, but on network tv? No way.

    Hopefully Two Broke Girls and that chick in a hat cop show follow.

    Getting a tad older now, but as an actress and "F Puppet", I like Maria Bello. Great legs.

    I thought the pilot for [I]Prime Suspect [/I]was trite, and it has gone downhill since. Will be jettisoned from out TV screens soon.

    +1

    Plus she looks like she has the potential to get very angry at me and despise the ground I walk on, which is hugely appealing.

    You just know she'd join you in your "naughty librarian/talking college student" scenario. I bet she'd look great as a female Vulcan, too.

    Lol....I'm thinking more of a "Beeatch boss giving a bad review getting the tables turned" scenario, though the "COld Vulcan empress surprised in the communal bath" one would work too.

    :D

    good movie, in a "Viggo Mortensen is an epic badass and Maria Bello gets nekkid" sort of way.
