Bye Bye Playboy Club

The new TV drama that was promoted this Fall–The Playboy Club was cancelled this week by NBC. The Parents Television Council (PTC) called for a boycott and urged sponsors to pull out of the show.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Seven advertisers exited the series in the series’ second week after PTC president deemed the show a ‘commercial disaster’ and called for the network to cancel the ‘degrading and sexualizing program immediately.'” Even long-time feminist, Gloria Steinem called for a boycott. And an NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City refused to air the show.

Basically, there were no ratings. So you add the lack of audience, with controversy and boycotting, and you have a recipe for failure.

I am glad the audience didn’t tune in and that the PTC put pressure on the network.

Playboy is offensive to women and we don’t need another vehicle objectifying us–we already have music videos for that!
