Hugh Hefner Reacts to Cancellation of The Playboy Club

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Hugh Hefner has weighed in on the cancellation of “The Playboy Club.”

Hef tweeted, “I’m sorry NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’ didn’t find it’s audience. It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.”

“Fans of ‘The Playboy Club’ are really upset at the cancellation,” he added.

As Gossip Cop reported earlier, the NBC show, which starred Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard, premiered to a modest 5 million viewers on September 20, and then plummeted to 3.8 million the following week. The drama’s third and most recent episode garnered just 3.2 million viewers.

“The Playboy Club” also faced opposition from the Parents Television Council, which repeatedly blasted the show for its sexual content and portrayal of women.

Today, NBC announced that Brian Williams’ newsmagazine show “Rock Center” will take over the series’ time slot beginning October 31.
