'Playboy Club' TV show cancellation may please San Francisco commission 

The San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women must be pleased with the news Tuesday that NBC has canceled the short-lived television series “Playboy Club.”

In August, the commission passed a resolution ahead of the series’ Sept. 19 launch calling on the network “to replace the program with a series that, instead, depicts women’s substantive achievements.”

The show was canceled Tuesday, according to media reports, which cited lack of viewers for the reason.

“The show represents a major step backward for women who have struggled to earn an equal place in the workplace, in the community, and at home,” the commission’s resolution said.

Not everyone agreed with the commission’s resolution but it appears most people agreed that show wasn’t good for whatever reason.
