hugh hefner playboy club cancellation Hugh Hefner: 'Playboy Club' should have been on cable, 'aimed at more adult audience'Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner was sad to hear about the cancellation of NBC’s “The Playboy Club” after just three episodes. Hef tweets:

  • “I’m sorry NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’ didn’t find its audience. It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.”
  • “At the same time, there is renewed studio interest in a major motion
    picture on my life & the start of the Sexual Revolution.”

  • “Fans of ‘The Playboy Club’ are really upset at the cancellation.”
  • “There will be three more episodes of ‘The Playboy Club’–six in all.”

Hopefully the three un-aired episodes will be shown. Do you agree with his assessment – that the show should’ve been done on cable? It certainly could have had racier content that way.
