Dismal Debut For NBC’s ‘Paul Reiser Show’

Apparently no one was missing Paul Reiser since Mad About You left the air more than a decade ago. His new sitcom, The Paul Reiser Show, debuted to terrible numbers last night on NBC. Reiser averaged a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating at 8:30 p.m., finishing sixth in the timeslot behind even Univision and the CW.
