NBC axes 'Paul Reiser Show' after only 2 weeks

April 26th, 2011 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - NBC has yanked "The Paul Reiser Show" after just two little-watched airings.

The comedy, which attempted a TV comeback for the former star of "Mad About You," attracted a dismal 3.4 million viewers to its premiere. That same week TV's highest-rated comedy, "Modern Family" on ABC, had 9.6 million viewers.

The "Reiser" audience then dropped last week to 2.4 million viewers.

NBC says it will air repeats of "The Office" in the time slot - Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. Eastern - for the final month of the TV season.
