‘The Playboy Club’ Gets Cancelled

Turns out no one wants to see Eddie Cibrian pretend to be Don Draper as The Hollywood Reporter says terrible ratings have brought about the cancellation of The Playboy Club. Hopefully this means Amber Heard will go back to dancing naked in movies like The Informers and prancing around in bikinis in movies like And Soon the Darkness.

Playboy Club’s cancellation comes after the drama premiered Sept. 20 to underwhelming ratings, attracting 5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic. The second episode of the series from showrunner Chad Hodge and 20th Century Fox Television, tumbled 19 percent, luring only 3.8 million viewers and a 1.3 in the demo. Its most recent episode dropped even more, attracting 3.2 million viewers and a 1.2.

The series faced a backlash almost from the start, as the Parents Television Council called for a boycott and urged sponsors to pull out of the show that starred Amber Heard and Eddie Cibrian in a 1960s-set story about the Chicago Playboy Club and the bunnies and men who loved them.

Seven advertisers exited the series in the series’ second week after PTC president deemed the show a “commercial disaster” and called for the network to cancel the “degrading and sexualizing program immediately.” The Hollywood Reporter

Is it just me or did that last quote from PTC’s president make you want to watch the show? They should have milked the controversy for publicity. C’mon. Degrading and sexualizing? That meant I could have watched NBC instead of spending my Monday nights searching Google.

I don’t know, I thought the show was quite interesting.  I hate all these vampire shows.  For once, a show with some glamor! I think its sad that it got cancelled.  Now I will just go back to watching stuff on the internet.
