Is 'The Playboy Club' or 'Pan Am' More Accurate?

At the heart of NBC's 'The Playboy Club' and ABC's 'Pan Am' are trailblazing women. These two new fall shows are based on real-life happenings of the 1960s and have some very vocal critics and it's looking like women who lived through the period are happier with 'Pan Am.' Over at Vanity Fair , former Chicago Playboy bunny Marilyn Miller wasn't shy in sharing her disdain for the new NBC series. "I'm so disappointed," Miller said. "They did a wonderful job re-creating the club physically, but everything else..." Miller said the show is filled with inaccuracies. The bunnies never danced with or dated customers, nor were there mobsters and politicians. "I didn't like the whole show. I thought it was cheap, it was degrading, it was demoralizing. It makes the Bunnies seem silly," she said. "Not one Bunny I know liked the show. Everyone is hoping it gets canceled." //www.aoltv.com/2011/09/27/playboy-club-pan-am-accuracy/

The Playboy Club 1.03 Promo and Synopsis: A Matter of Simple Duplicity

The Playboy Club ended its second episode with Alice's husband Sean approaching Nick to "apply" for a spot as his campaign manager, Carol-Lynne taking Nick back (while threatening Maureen), and Maureen narrowly avoiding being found out as the person who took out Bruno Bianchi. After the pilot established the setting/atmosphere and the second episode brought out a little dimension in the bunnies, the third episode, "A Matter of Simple Duplicity", now faces the task of moving the story forward and adding a little bit more tension to the proceedings.

A New Cover Girl is Chosen, on 'The Playboy Club' (VIDEO)

On this week's episode of 'The Playboy Club' (Mon., 10PM ET on NBC) the Bunnies got to find out which one of them would be the magazine's new cover girl. There was so much tension in the Bunny locker room you could practically cut the air with a knife as Den Mother Carol-Lynne prepared to announce who'd been chosen. (Who knew that brains and selflessness were two of the criteria used to pick the 'Playboy' cover girl?) !!!SPOILER ALERT!!! And the winner is ... Bunny Janie! Cue insincere applause and disappointed glances from the other Bunnies. However, Janie's moment of triumph is short-lived as she says "I just can't do this" and rushes from the room. //www.aoltv.com/2011/09/27/a-new-cover-girl-is-chosen-on-the-playboy-club-video/

Titanic Actor To Terrorize The Playboy Club

Actor Billy Zane, who terrorized Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic , will soon be doing the same to Eddie Cibrian on NBC's The Playboy Club .

Sending a Playboy to Do a Man's Job

The role of Nick Dalton — a politically ambitious Chicago attorney with gangland ties on NBC's overheated period drama — requires an actor with a Jon Hamm-esque heft. Cibrian, who's arguably better known for his tabloid-magnet romance with LeAnn Rimes than his work on previous Monday-at-10 pm dramas like  CSI: Miami ,  Third Watch , and  Chase , is more like a ham-and-cheese sandwich.

TV ratings: 'Two and a Half Men' opens huge, 'Playboy Club' weak Monday

Fast National ratings for Monday, Sept. 19, 2011"Two and a Half Men" kicked off the 2011-12 season in grand style, pulling in close to 28 million viewers and a huge 10.3 demographic rating Monday night -- basically double its average for original episodes last season. The platform also gave the premiere of "2 Broke Girls" a great launch."Dancing With the Stars" was down a good bit from its premiere last year, but it still led ABC to the total-viewer title for the night (helped by a strong premiere for "Castle"). On the other side of the ledger was NBC. Neither "The Sing-Off" nor "The Playboy Club" really gained any traction, leaving the network in a fairly distant fourth place for the night.ABC's consistent performance on the night gave it the No. 1 spot in viewers with an average of 16.9 million and a 10.9 rating/16 share in households. CBS (15.7 million, 9.5/14) came in a... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/tv-ratings-two-and-a-half-men-opens-huge-playboy-club-weak-monday.html
