NBC has yanked "The Paul Reiser Show" after just two little-watched airings.
The comedy, which attempted a TV comeback for the former star of "Mad About You," attracted a dismal 3.4 million viewers to its premiere. That same week TV's highest-rated comedy, "Modern Family" on ABC, had 9.6 million viewers.

The "Reiser" audience then dropped last week to 2.4 million viewers.
NBC says it will air repeats of "The Office" in the time slot — Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. Eastern — for the final month of the TV season.
