With declining ratings since its premiere two weeks ago, the drama gets the ax, becomming the new season’s first cancellation.
The network said today it is canceling 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.
