Paul Reiser Trashes NBC to Jay Leno

Paul Reiser was originally scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote his new NBC series, The Paul Reiser Show. But the network didn’t cancel his appearance after they cancelled his show. The series was nixed after just two episodes, and Reiser didn’t bother to hide his disenchantment with the network… even on one of their own shows.

“They don’t traditionally make bad decisions,” he said of the network, tongue-in-cheek, to the (current) Tonight Show host. Leno has had his own troubles with NBC, but managed to get re-hired after he was fired from his TV show. We're not sure the same will happen to Reiser.

“They said we enjoy missing you more than actually having you,” the actor explained. “When you’re the last place network, you don’t want to jeopardize that.” Burn. You can watch Reiser's interview in the video above.

He is right, in some respects. The days of Mad About You, which ran on NBC to great success for 7 years, are long over. The network has remained consistently on the bottom of the ratings game, far removed from dominant ratings giant CBS.
