The “Paul Reiser Show” Is Already Toast. That Was Quick!

The “Paul Reiser Show” was supposed to be Paul’s triumphant return to TV. 10 years after “Mad About You” Reiser was going to come back to NBC and do a “Larry David-type Curb Your Enthusiasm” show for prime time.

Well after 2 weeks, and the lowest ever rated NBC Midseason replacement show, “The Paul Reiser Show” has been cancelled. When I said “lowest rated”, I mean it barely had 3 million viewers in it’s debut, and only reached 2 1/2 million in the second and final show. More people watched “The Real Housewives of Burton Heights”…I think…

On a sidenote. I watched an episode of “Doogie Howser, MD” a couple of nights ago. Back in the 90’s, this was one of a handful of “single camera” sitcoms that were on the air. It wasn’t the “in” thing like it is now. A “single camera” sitcom is one that’s NOT shot in front of an audience. Like “2 & 1/2 Men” or “How I Met Your Mother”. All the single cam sitcoms that are on now, I can’t watch ANY of them. I hate em. ALL of them (“Paul Reiser” was one, as is “Community” and “Cougar Town” and “Modern Family”)

But I did watch “Doogie” and “Wonder Years” when they were on. I could stand them. Now I can’t watch “Curb Your Enthusiasm” or “Entourage”…hate ’em like the Plague!

Here’s the story of Paul show going down the tubes and others that came before it…From “AMNew York”…
