Posted by at 3:08 pm on October 4, 2011

Controversial new drama “The Playboy Club” was axed Tuesday by NBC after just three episodes, marking one of the first cancellations of the new fall TV season.

NBC announced that its new, news magazine show “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” will take its place in the Monday evening slot, starting on October 31. New police drama “Prime Suspect” will fill the slot in the meantime.

“The Playboy Club,” set in the early 1960s in the legendary men’s nightclub, centers around the lives of Playboy Bunnies and customers, drew controversy even before it aired.

The show, starring Amber Heard and Eddie Cibrian, drew just 4.1 million viewers in its third outing Monday, according to ratings data.
