Eddie Cibrian Injured on 'The Playboy Club' Set

Eddie Cibrian InjuredThe old saying is "add insult to injury," but it was the reverse for 'Playboy Club' star Eddie Cibrian, who was injured on the set of his now-canceled series.

The actor was injured on Tuesday night, the same day NBC canceled the fledgling show.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cibrian injured his right heel. The actor was running down an alley on the show's set and caught his heel under a 200-pound steel door.

Cibrian was treated for a deep gash on his foot at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

While the show no longer has a home on NBC -- it's being replaced by reruns of 'Prime Suspect' until 'Rock Center' debuts on Oct. 31 -- the studio is rumored to be looking for a new home for the series about Hugh Hefner's Chicago Playboy club in the 1960s.

"I'm sorry NBC's 'The Playboy Club' didn't find it's audience," Hefner tweeted after the show was canceled. "It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience."

it shows how far women have come? what, dressing skimpier than ever to impress a man. women have never been treated more abusive- physically, mentally, and emotionally, as they are today. as far as playboy being aimed at conscientious, "intelligent' young men, they missed their mark. Btw, was playgirl not aimed at conscientious "intelligent" young women? oh thats right, the men didn't like it on the market, it's repulsive and offensive to them. They don't want men to be exposed, and they don't want their women looking at men, so the magazine is virtually non existent. Yet these are the same men that think its ok to do that to women. Disgusting.

i watched the first episode, and if they would have stuck with real happenings in the playboy world, i would have kept watching. but the subplot involving the dead criminal was just stupid. there are plenty of crime shows on broadcast tv and we did not need another one.

hopefully if this show restarts on cable, they will stick with the 60's partying and top entertainers who were at the clubs and the mansion, and show the fun and decadence of the time . . .

I enjoyed it - but come on opposite Monday Night Football?. What a stupid place to put it. There was half their audience right there.

This show was a complete and total waste of time...

How about actually putting something on TV that is worth watching nowadays??

The only thing missing to make it a complete flop would be any Kardashian...

I liked the PLAYBOY CLUB, NBC should have allowed it to continue. I hope it does find a new home on HBO.

Shocking.... a show about half naked women pleasing men can't find its audience..... I'm glad that crap is off the air.

"The Playboy Club" just wasn't interesting... or believable. Folks wandered in and out of offices or in supply closets. And how did they get that body out of the club? There was some security in 1961!
