THE PLAYBOY CLUB

From Academy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer, “The Playboy Club" is a provocative new drama about a time and place that challenged the social mores, where a visionary entrepreneur created an empire and an icon changed American culture. It’s the early ‘60s, and the legendary Playboy Club in Chicago is the door to all of your fantasies -- and the key is the most sought-after status symbol of its kind. Inside the seductive world of the bunny, the epitome of beauty and service, the clientele rubs shoulders with the decade’s biggest mobsters, politicos and entertainers. Nick Dalton (Eddie Cibrian, “CSI: Miami”) is one of the city’s top attorneys and the ultimate playboy, rubbing elbows with everyone in the city's power structure. With mysterious ties to the mob, Nick comes to the aid of Maureen (Amber Heard, “Zombieland”), the stunning and innocent new bunny who accidentally kills the leader of the Bianchi crime family. Dating Nick is Carol-Lynne (Laura Benanti, “Take the Lead”), a bombshell and established star at the club who knows her days as a bunny are numbered and finds herself continually at odds with Billy (David Krumholtz, ”Numb3rs”), the club's general manager. Adding to the charm of the Playboy club is Janie (Jenna Dewan Tatum, “American Virgin”), the carefree life of the party who is dating Max (Wes Ramsey, “CSI: Miami”), an overly protective bartender. Also starring are Naturi Naughton (“Fame”) and Leah Renee (“True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet”). In addition to Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “American Gangster”), the executive producers on “The Playboy Club” include Chad Hodge (“Tru Calling”), Francie Calfo (“Scoundrels”), Jason Burns ("The House Bunny”) and Dick Rosenzweig (“Kendra”). Hodge also wrote the pilot, which was directed by Alan Taylor (“Mad Men,” “The Sopranos”). The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television.

I know alot of folks are hating on Eddie because of the whole Leann Rimes thing, but IMO, they're married now, they seem to be happy, just live and let live. I'll be trying out the show because I like Eddie as an ACTOR. I don't know how good or bad the ratings will be, but I'm looking forward to seeing him back on TV.

Oh crap, I missed the first episode? Had no idea it was starting already!

I enjoyed it... but wasn't thrilled. It didn't manage to evoke the feeling of the era like MAD MEN does. It was just a bunch of people walking around, talking, acting and behaving just like someone in 2011 does. So, fail. However, Maureen is a great lead, Cibrian is hot as ever and portrayed the role nicely and I like how they have a few Bunnies and follow their lives. Interesting about the secret homosexual meeting. I'll keep watching and see where this goes.

Apparently it got around 5 million viewers, so it probably won't air for long.

Damn! Really? laugh.png That's a huge, epic fail. You're right, it prob will be dead in a few weeks.

I wonder if PanAm will have better luck--the reviews seem to think it's better.

It did very poorly in the ratings. It got beat badly by Castle and Hawaii Five-o. It only manged a 3.4 HH rating and a 2.0 in 18-49 demo. I dont see it lasting but 2 or 3 episodes at best.

Well, in all honesty, you can't expect a new show to do well against Castle and Hawaii Five-O. That slot is deathly for it, especially if people are already unsure whether they should give it a shot or not.

Harry's Law did. It was/is a good show.

With the ratings for the second episode, it seems like The Playboy Club may be one of the first casualties....
