I’m really sad to report that NBC’s new prime-time series is being cancelled with only 3 episodes into the season. It actually comes as a shock, I actually liked the show, with its 1960s charm and underlying mafia theme. The fact that ABC’s Charlie’s Angels is still on air…and Playboy Club gets cancelled after 3 episodes is really disappointing.
Hugh Heffner had some thoughts about the shows cancellation- and quite frankly I agree with him! Speaking out on Twitter after the anticipated cancellation, Heffner tweeted, “It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.” In my opinion, the Playboy Club should have been picked up on a cable network like HBO or Showtime. Obviously, network tv can’t show what really happened in those clubs. If HBO were to pick up this show…they would be able to show the real down and dirty.Also, there would have been a better chance to get some hotshot director working the pilot (like Boardwalk Empire)
Oh well. In other news, don’t forge to watch Vampire Diaries tonight!!
