NBC Picks Up Whitney for a Full Season as The Playboy Club Gets the Axe

Well, skin fans, all those predictions of a Playboypocalypse turned out to be right. Today NBC announced that The Playboy Club will have the dubious honor of being Fall 2011′s first official TV cancellation. The network will pull the low-rated, controversial drama after just three episodes, making tonight the last time you’ll be able to ogle Amber Heard in that skintight satin getup (though of course you’ll still have plenty of opportunities to see Amber much nuder here at Mr. Skin!).

On the other hand, it’s a great day for Whitney Cummings as she celebrates her sitcom Whitney being picked up for a full season by NBC. Whitney’s other sitcom project, the Kat Dennings vehicle 2 Broke Girls, is also doing well, holding strong at 11.37 million viewers after the biggest fall comedy premiere in a decade. Another boob tube winner? Christina Applegate, whose sitcom Up All Night was also picked up for a full season by NBC.

Who will come out on top in the race for boob tube supremacy? Stay tuned to the Mr. Skin blog and find out!
