NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’ Gets Axed

Movies & TV

NBC’s The Playboy Club is getting the boot. The show was cancelled after drawing a disappointing 3.5 million people for its third episode.

The 1960s period piece will be replaced by a new prime-time newsmagazine series Rock Center, which will be hosted by Brian Williams. The replacement show will start on Oct. 31. Until then, reruns of Prime Suspect will fill that slot.

Critics had been giving the show mixed reviews.

Props to Uptown.
