wprager Cancelling shows to air more Whitney? Ouch! I'm still watching Community, Parks & Rec and The Office -- and the last one is on life support. I think that's it for NBC. Back in the day of Tartikoff NBC made up the bulk of my viewing.

NBC cancels 'Free Agents'

NBC plans to fill the Wednesday 8:30 p.m. slot with repeats of its new comedy "Whitney."

NBC has also announced they picked up “Up All Night” and “Whitney” for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.

Snake785 That's too bad...The Playboy Club was actually kinda decent.

classicsat Just the name, and association with what passed for a nudie magazine then.

PFD I think it probably wasn't controversial enough. I havent' seen any of it, but I'm surprised given it was one of the most talked about prior to the season's launch.

wprager Wow, that didn't take long. What was controversial about it?

magnet The series had ended its run and will be replaced by a new newsmagazine, Rock Center with Brian Williams, on Oct. 31.

hugh NBC cancels controversial 'Playboy Club'

NBC will fill the Monday night slot with repeats of new police drama Prime Suspect. There are no plans to run off remaining Playboy Club episodes in another time period.

Shootmaster_44 I tuned into Whitney, for all the promoting NBC put into the show, I have to say it was bad. I don't normally tune out half way through, but I killed it half way in. She was on Howard Stern this week and if this was a cable show on HBO or something it would a monster hit. Sadly, her style of comedy is not what the show had.

I also tuned into the L&O: SVU premiere and they should've replaced Stabler with another guy. I also dislike how they focused a bit on Olivia and her relationship with Stabler. The thing I always liked about L&O was that the cops were cops and the focus was the case. By not developing their backstories as much, it made it easier to switch out actors. I will still watch, but it has lost a step.

My PVR also has Prime Suspect, Playboy Club and Free Agents on it. I hope that they are good.

wprager Best show on NBC is Parks and Rec. Soooo glad I won't have to wait until February this year. 30 Rock pushed to mid-season -- I guess that's to accommodate Tina Fey's pregnancy, but IMO it's been supplanted by P&R as the best NBC sitcom now. Too bad it can't get better ratings.

CastleRockDays The only show I really watch on NBC is America's Got Talent, and my brother likes to watch The Apprentice.

jeffaustin90 Free Agents looks to be pretty funny, I think it'll fit in nicely with Community/Parks/Office.

I predict the first cancellations from NBC to be The Playboy Club and Whitney.
