The Playboy Club Canceled

The Playboy Club Is the First New Show to Get Canceled

Ladies and gentleman, we have the first casualty of the 2011 Fall TV season: NBC has canceled The Playboy Club. The 1960s drama set in Chicago lasted only three episodes after suffering low ratings and complaints from the Parents Television Council about its racy subject matter.

This update comes on the heels of the news that NBC is picking up Whitney and Up All Night for full seasons, but they've apparently decided to leave The Playboy Club behind (as for its vacant Monday nighttime slot, NBC will air reruns of new series Prime Suspect). Are you surprised that is the first to go?
