‘The Paul Reiser Show’ Should Have Been Called ‘The No One Is Watching This Show’

Friday, April 15 by

Poo Paul Reiser. What was supposed to be his triumphant return to television has turned out to be the biggest disaster in television history, or at least “NBC’s lowest-rated in-season comedy premiere ever,” with only 3.3 million viewers, which would have to put it in the running for the former designation. He seems to be taking it in stride though:

“Listen, this was shortest ramp up in the history of television. Literally 20 days ago [NBC] said, ‘We’re putting you up,’ and we said, ‘OK, great.’”

Then, Reiser started sobbing uncontrollably and threw his microphone at the head of a member of the Los Angeles press corp. Or he would have, anyway, if I had anything to say about it, which I don’t. (The Hollywood Reporter)
