Paul Reiser’s Show Canceled After Two Episodes

Americans aren’t mad about him anymore: Paul Reiser’s big TV comeback, The Paul Reiser Show, has been canceled by NBC after just two episodes. The 3.3 million people who watched the first episode were the fewest ever for an NBC in-season comedy premiere. Even fewer people tuned in for episode number two. Reiser says NBC rushed the show to air: "This was shortest ramp up in the history of television. Literally 20 days ago [NBC] said, ‘We’re putting you up,’ and we said, ‘OK, great.’ ” It will be replaced by reruns of The Office.
