NBC Gives Paul Reiser the Boot


After only two episodes, NBC has canceled The Paul Reiser Show, Paul Reiser's long-gestating return to TV. The network threw almost zero marketing muscle or promotional support behind the series, and Reiser ended up breaking the record for lowest-rated regular-season series premiere ever for an NBC comedy. The network's new brass were reportedly "reluctant" to can NBC's former star so quickly, but execs ultimately decided they just had to replace Reiser with repeats of The Office. [Deadline]
