    Yeah, probably going to be a fail. Amber Heard can't act, but she sure is hella hot.

    I'm putting my money on a fail as well.
    The only promising thing about that promo was that they actually had music from a Norwegian band (the one that went like "Beggin', beggin' you, Put your loving hand out baby")

    How can they put this on network TV? Or is NBC's newfound sway over the FCC going to be enough for them to say "screw you" to the haters and and let them do whatever they want in the later time slots.

    I'm pretty sure it's from Madcon, actually. They used to play it on the radio 24/7, and even though the lyrics are the same, the one from the video seems to have a stronger beat. Compare for yourself;

    Wow, did NBC really greenlight a show that seems to be about a guy who walks around doing a half-assed Don Draper impersonation all day?

    The whole Playboy image and brand has gone downhill and is far from the status that it once was. It's a shame too.

    I'll probably watch at least the first few shows to see how it goes, but I agree with both of the above statements.

    Oh well, with Mad Men not back until probably next April, this will at least feed some of my ongoing need for a fix of early 60's style.

    There's also another show, about Pan Am Airlines coming to ABC in the Fall as well that is again very similar and looks like another Mad Men rip-off... http://articles.latimes.com/2011/may...rdess-20110518

    Gotta love the TV networks, when something works they are very quick to duplicate [​IMG]

    Enjoy paging through the The Playboy Club Bunny Manual (July 1969).
    Wow, that was interesting.

    I love seeing the Pan Am building from a distance every time I walk on Park Ave... oh, wait....

    It's NBC... what do you expect? They haven't been great since Warren Littlefield, and Brandon Tartikoff before him.

    I predict incomplete first season runs for both Playboy Club and Pan Am.

    The decisions of networks as of late has me confused; the past few seasons especially, they cancel somewhat interesting shows that are hitting their slowly starting to hit their stride and replace them with clearly rehashed ideas that are bound to be less successful.

    Next thing you know, we'll have LoveBoat3 on the air...
