THE PLAYBOY CLUB Cancelled

In a move that really won’t surprise too many people, the first official cancellation of the 2011-2012 Fall TV season is NBC’s THE PLAYBOY CLUB.

According to TV Line, the network announced the cancellation of the new series, after airing only three, low-rated episodes.

The network plans to air repeats of the new police drama Prime Suspect in the 10 PM timeslot on Monday nights until the Rock Center with Brian Williams debuts on October 31.

For those unfamiliar with the premise of the now defunct series, The Playboy Club starred Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard in a story about the goings-on at the infamous Playboy Club in 1960s Chicago.
