BubbleWatch: NBC's 'Perfect Couples'
SHOW: "Perfect Couples" (NBC)
IN ITS FAVOR: NBC let "Perfect Couples" get through most of its Thursday 8:30 p.m. run, which is more than could be said for "The Paul Reiser Show." And when NBC canned "The Paul Reiser Show," more than a few people saw that move as a validation for the future of this relationship comedy, which features a solid ensemble.
AGAINST IT: In its finale, "Perfect Couples" averaged under 2.3 million viewers and a 1.0 demo rating. Unless you're on The CW, network TV shows don't get renewed with those numbers.
OUR TOTALLY UNINFORMED GUESS: "Perfect Couples" is dead.
Final Verdict: NBC canceled "Perfect Couples."
