Many of you (we'll be honest: many more than we were expecting) were not pleased with NBC's decision to can "The Playboy Club" after three episodes, giving it the title of first casualty of the season.
Of course, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who did some voiceover work in the premiere, was sad to see his trademarked bunnies exit network TV as well. He tweeted Tuesday, "I'm sorry NBC's "The Playboy Club" didn't find it's audience. It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience." (Well, that would've been more in line with the brand.)
Since then, he's been retweeting the statements of disappointed fans, consoling one of them with the promise that there will be "three more episodes of 'The Playboy Club' –six in all."
The 85-year-old playboy isn't letting NBC's cancellation keep his spirits down. "At the same time," he wrote Tuesday, "there is renewed studio interest in a major motion picture on my life & the start of the Sexual Revolution."
In the meantime, Mondays at 10 p.m. on the Peacock Network will be filled with reruns of Maria Bello's "Prime Suspect" before the newsmagazine show "Rock Center with Brian Williams" premieres on October 31.
