PlayboyClub230.jpgNBC has canceled its controversial series The Playboy Club.

The retro show starred Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard.

The show garnered just 3.4 million viewers on Monday night.

It got off to a slow start with its Sept. 19 premiere -- prior to which The Parents Television Council and other groups had spoken out against its sexual content.

But, in good news for new shows, the network has picked up comedies Whitney and Up All Night for full seasons.
