I want to hear what you guy’s think of this new show, whether it’s good or bad. I, for one, am really interested in this show. It’s enjoyable and relaxing. There haven’t been real jaw-dropping moments yet. I hope it climbs back in the ratings, yu can’t judge the show for the first couple of episodes. I want to see this season through.
What do you think of this new NBC show?October 3, 2011 at 5:32 pm #230949
Like everything I like it’s going to be cancelled. It’s a good show. And not in a way it’s so bad it’s good. It’s just good. I really like Laura Benanti and Amber Heard is as cute as button. The only bad thing about the show is Eddie Cibrian. Yes, he’s handsome but he’s also a weak actor. Btw NBC made a mistake putting the show at 10 PM on Monday night. They should reschedule it but I have a feeling they will burn what they have in can and that’s it.October 3, 2011 at 8:15 pm #230950
Carol-Lynne and Billy hire a new bunny who ends up having a hidden agenda; Nick’s campaign manager sets him up with a wealthy socialite (Cassidy Freeman); Maureen tries to keep herself safe by getting close to John Bianchi.October 3, 2011 at 10:22 pm #230951
As much as I thought the “everyone has a secret” premise showed promise in the pilot, it worries me that I’ve already missed two episodes since and have little inclination to track them down and watch them. Actors in Chicago need the work this show will bring, but the show itself doesn’t compel me to tune in.
Now that I think about it, I don’t know anyone who watches it at all.
Can we just skip to midseason so we can have NBC’s Smash and Awake? Those are two shows that will make a splash!October 3, 2011 at 11:00 pm #230952
I feel like I’m in the minority of enjoy this show. It’s kinda grabbing my interest with every episode. I’ll still give it a shot, but they need to change it’s timeslot. Maybe it will get more notice.
As for this episode, the new bunny journalist conflict was at first well developed. But the end felt rushed, the whole resolving of it felt short. The end with Maureen and Bianchi is gonna keep me to next week. Laura Benanti shines in this show. Amber Heard is shockingly good and is really charming but Benanti kinda steals the show.
Grade: B ( MVP: Benanti)October 3, 2011 at 11:13 pm #230953
The only good thing about this show is the laugh factor. Cibrian trying to be Don Draper? HAHAHA. He’s an awful actor and is not at all charasmatic. He’s also proof that a pretty face alone can’t get things done. (and it’s not that pretty of a face, to be honest)
The Playboy Club is crap. The ratings are crap. NBC might stick with it for another minute or two, but that’s it. And that minute is because NBC wants to save face, they’re just delaying the inevitable. It’s going to be cancelled.
I’m with Spenser_Davis — Bring on Smash! At worst, Smash will be fun to make fun of if it fails miserably. At best, it’ll be good. I’m hoping for good…poor NBC, it’s now the little network that could. It keeps chugging along. Bless its heart.October 4, 2011 at 8:49 am #230954
I made it through the pilot, but that was it. No real period feel, no storytelling structure at all and no real possibilities. And Cibrian isn’t just the poor man’s Don Draper, he’s the destitute, flat-ass broke man’s Don Draper. Ech.October 4, 2011 at 10:24 am #230955
The hammer drops, finally. Mercy kill, this was:October 4, 2011 at 10:56 am #230956
Expected it. Sad but still expected it. Now I know why so many actors do not like takings roles on network shows. Of course they get pay more there than on cable. But at least on cable you get your whole season to be shown. On network they can pull the plug even after one episode aired. Actors, stay away from network shows!October 4, 2011 at 5:20 pm #230957
Sad, but inevitable. This show when it first was kinda announced, I knew it was trying to be NBC’s version of a good drama. Sadly I actually liked it, otu of the few 3 million. Now I understand why people don’t committ to new shows after their first premiere.October 4, 2011 at 9:07 pm #230958
At least it isn’t a show like Lone Star that had some real potential.October 5, 2011 at 11:55 pm #230959
So apparently Cibrian fell while filming the same day the show was cancelled. His achilles needed stiches.
The hope is that they’ll be picked by a cable network, which is why they kept filming. My hope is that Cibrian never works again. He’s such an awful actor.October 6, 2011 at 12:05 am #230960

“first premiere” Haha. As opposed to the second premiere?
Your wordiness aside, not commiting to an expensive drama in its first season is a good rule of thumb. They’re all gonna be canceled, basically. Unless it’s on CBS.
