NBC has canceled a prime-time show whose performance has been so poor that it stood out even with almost the entire network lineup performing poorly–and it only took two episodes for NBC to pull the plug, reports the Futon Critic.
The series is "The Paul Reiser Show." The debut episode drew 3.37 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18 to 49 years old, but the numbers fell to 2.38 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in 18 to 49 for the second episode, which aired last Thursday, the story says.
The network plans to air repeats of "The Office" during the 8:30 p.m. time slot on Thursdays for the final four weeks of the TV season, the story says.
Reiser was once a fixture of NBC’s "Must-See TV" Thursday night lineup, starring opposite Helen Hunt in "Mad About You."
