And We Have Winner….Er Loser


The first show and the first drama to be cancelled this season is…

The Playboy Club

The show was cancelled after three episodes, so it is possible that  another show from this fall season will be cancelled in two. Nothing currently airing really screams out for a two episode cancellation however. In terms of the poll, four of you got it right, saying that The Playboy Club would be the show cancelled earliest. However it was tied with Charlie’s Angels (and anecdotally, it seems to me that most of the votes for Charlie’s Angels came after the show started airing), a show which could tie with The Playboy Club. Five other shows each got one vote: Revenge, Unforgettable, Prime Suspect, Grimm, and Hart Of Dixie.

The Playboy Club, which was the first series picked up by NBC Entertainment President Bob Greenblatt for the 2011-12 season will be replaced temporarily by reruns of NBC’s Thursday series Prime Suspect (which is also not setting the ratings on fire) until October 31st when NBC new newsmagazine Rock Center With Brian Williams on October 31st. Since the original plan was to replace The Playboy Club with the new musical based series Smash in the winter, it is likely that Rock Center’s time in the Monday third hour time slot will itself be temporary.

Saw you on Bill Crider, I'd could tell you I'd read your blog to flatter you but let's not.
When I was a child the first one up in the morning turned on the TV and the last one to bed turned it off.
In my twenties and thirties I basically went seventeen years without watching it. I've still never seen an entire episode of Dallas or The Cosby show. I saw a few playoff football games in bars and a random few minutes while picking up dates or friends.
TV makes me crazy

FREE AGENTS has also been cancelled. Probably a pity, I've heard it's not bad, but haven't caught it in any form yet and might not ever.

I was actually sad to hear the The Playboy Club was cancelled... mostly because I wanted this show to succeed because Sean Maher was in it. Still hoping he can find a show that turns out a little more successful next time.

In other news, love your blog, keep it up!
