FIRST AXE OF THE TV SEASON FALLS ON THE BUNNY'S HEAD; BRIAN WILLIAMS TO TAKE OVER TIME SLOT

Well, to no one's surprise NBC put the rabbit on the chopping block and chopped its head off today, as The Playboy Club has the embarrassing dishonor of being the official first cancellation of the 2011-2012 TV season.

I don't think the show had a chance in the Boring States of America. I also don't think I'll miss the show much, actually. The only reason I watched it was to get back at these religious groups who were trying to get it pulled from the air before we got a chance to see it.

Anyway, those of you who had the rabbits in your fall Cancellation Death Pool can now collect your winnings, as it is GONE after just three showings. Meanwhile, just like earlier this year with the infamous Crystal Harris "Runaway Bride" issue, Playboy is again stuck peddling magazines that are already out of date. They have issues on newsstands now with Laura Benanti on the cover, all promoting The Playboy Club on NBC! Well, if you tune in now to NBC on Mondays you'll instead be seeing this guy (right).

According to this Hollywood Reporter account of what happened today, Brian Williams will be taking his new newsmagazine show Rock Center to the former timeslot. I'm sure he'll be more palatable to the folks in Utah -- it's safe for them to turn on the TV again.
