LOS ANGELES: NBC has pulled "The Paul Reiser Show" off the air after just two episodes.

The comedy premiered last week to 3.3 million viewers in the coveted 18-49 year old demographic, ranking as the network`s lowest-rated in-season comedy beginning ever.

Its second episode didn`t fare any better, collecting 2.5 million viewers in 18-49 demographic.

Paul Reiser said during NBCUniversal`s summer press day last week that the network rushed the show to air.

"This was shortest ramp up in the history of television. Literally 20 days ago (NBC) said, `We`re putting you up,` and we said, `OK, great,` " he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Repeats of "The Office" will take over beginning next week.
