NBC cancelled "The Paul Reiser Show" on Friday after just two episodes, TheWrap has confirmed.

The "Mad About You" star's critically panned return to television debuted to the lowest ratings in network history; 3.3 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.

The bleeding showed no signs of stopping as  Reiser suffered an 18 percent drop in its second week.

Starting next week, the network plans to air repeats of "The Office" in "Reiser"s' 8:30 p.m. time slot. No decision has been made on when or if the remaining episodes of the series will air.
