NBC has cancelled Playboy Club (making it this season's first cancellation), and renewed Up All Night and Whitney. Guess the Peacock wants to let its comedies shine these days.
Fox is threatening to end The Simpsons if the voice actors don't agree to a 45 percent pay cut. The actors offered to take a 30 percent pay cut in exchange for a small percentage of the show's back-end profits, but Fox declined. D'oh indeed.
