    NBC Cancels the Playboy Club

    ‘Playboy Club' Collapses
    By L. Brent Bozell III
    October 7, 2011

    NBC President Robert Greenblatt was really committed to the new drama "The Playboy Club" just weeks ago. "What it has going for it is a recognizable brand that's automatically going to draw attention to it, good or bad," he said. "It's the right kind of thing for us to try." They tried it. Three episodes later, NBC made it the first canceled series of the season. Trains have rarely wrecked as ingloriously as this one.

    By the third episode, NBC could barely muster 3 million viewers, while ABC ("Castle") and CBS ("Hawaii Five-O") were both over 11 million. This show had flop sweat all over it. Entertainment Weekly wrote after the cancellation announcement that "The move is no surprise and, indeed, was expected months before the show premiered." So why on Earth did NBC work so hard to promote this show and its pornographic brand?...

    Huh. It seemed like a desperate attempt to compete with the stylish Mad Men series on AMC. The airline stewardess show, too. I haven't watched either, but am an avid fan of Mad Men.

    I watched the "Playboy Club" and I liked it. They also left me hanging wondering where the story line was suppose to go.

    Face it, nowadays, if it isn't a trashy reality show it doesn't have a prayer.
    "What though the radiance which was once so bright, be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower: we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind." William Wordsworth

    Well, I'm glad because I was getting really irritated at its revolting commercials showing when my young kids were watching Americas Got Talent.

    Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn? Remember how she said that we would meet again some sunny day? Vera, Vera, what has become of you? Does anybody else in here feel the way I do.
