In a letter to Vanity Fair, Maryilyn Miller, a former Playboy Bunny, wrote of The Playboy Club: â€œI didnâ€™t like the whole show. I thought it was cheap, it was degrading, it was demoralizing. It makes the Bunnies seems silly… Not one Bunny I know liked the show. Everyone is hoping it gets cancelled.â€
Well, Miller got her wish! After just three episodes and 3.5 million viewers, NBC has cancelled the new drama. Itâ€™s pretty sad 3.5 million viewers count as small numbers in television world.
The Playboy Club was based on the famous 1960s chic lounge and focused on the servers in sexy bunny outfits.
In her letter, Miller commented on the falsehood the show portrayed: â€œThe first thing that was incorrect was the dancing togetherâ€”we never danced! The Bunnies danced together, but never with a customer. It was a rule.â€
She continued, â€œAnother thing the show got wrong was that there werenâ€™t any mobsters or politicians at the club.â€
Hugh Hefner, however, was a fan of the show. He said on Twitter, â€œIâ€™m sorry NBCâ€™s The Playboy Club didnâ€™t find its audience. It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.â€
Hefner has also reposted reactions of other Playboy Club fans who have already begun to try to bring back show.
