'Paul Reiser Show' Replaces 'Perfect Couples' on NBC's Schedule

Paul ReiserNBC doesn't seem to be mad about 'Perfect Couples'; the Peacock is replacing it with 'The Paul Reiser Show.' Yes, Paul Reiser is returning to NBC starting Thurs., April 14 at 8:30PM.

The new series, which has been waiting on a premiere date for months now, will knock the underperforming freshman series 'Perfect Couples' off of Thursday night's comedy block.

'The Paul Reiser Show' follows Reiser as a fictionalized version of himself. The setup: Reiser's successful show has been off the air for a few years, he's been living out of the spotlight and working on TV, but behind the scenes. Reiser now finds himself with a new group of friends -- husbands of his wife's friends, parents of kids his children are friends with -- to get into adventures with.

'Perfect Couples' has been shedding viewers since its January premiere. Grabbing 4.152 million viewers in January, the show now pulls in around 2.89 million. It doesn't help that the series goes up against Fox's ratings powerhouse 'American Idol.' Further bad news for 'Perfect Couples' is the fact series star Kyle Bornheimer has signed on for a new pilot.

Tell us: Will you give Paul Reiser's new show a chance?

Liked Perfect Couples and its very funny that the show they replaced it with, the Paul Reiser Show, was canceled today after only TWO episodes. What is NBC doing? At least we had the lovely Olivia Munn to watch on Perfect Couples.

Never saw Perfect Couples, but replacing anything with Paul Reiser just can't be a good thing.

Absolutely! Oh, I am so happy Paul is back. I didn't like Perfect Couples from the preview show. I never watched it again after that. But Paul! OMG-he is the best! Can't wait. I'd set the DVR right now if I could set it that far ahead!

Wish I could say I was disappointed with the move but that would imply I watched the show.

It looks like another "no brainer" bad year for all the networks. How much "DWTS" and "AI", can a person take,especially a person with an active brain cell left?
