Paul Reiser Slams NBC for Canceling His Show After Two Episodes (Video)

"NBC, to my knowledge, they don't traditionally make bad decisions. Have you heard that? I don't know what your experience is," he tells Jay Leno.

Paul Reiser made a few digs at NBC Monday on the The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

"NBC, to my knowledge, they don't traditionally make bad decisions. Have you heard that? I don't know what your experience is," Reiser said to Leno drily, referring to his late-night war with Conan O'Brien. (Reiser defended Leno in a column on The Huffington Post.)

NBC canceled his TV return, the Paul Reiser Show (read the review), last week after just two episodes, which rated poorly.

"It turns out they said we enjoy missing you more than actually having you," Reiser joked. "But listen, I don't take it personally. Listen, when you're the last place network, you don't want to jeopardize that. You've found your niche. Stay there. So I get it."
