"Paul Reiser Show" cancelled before young disabled actor, Brock Waidmann, has his TV debut

From The Futon Critic:

LOS ANGELES -- As expected, NBC has pulled the plug on "The Paul Reiser Show" after two low-rated outings.

Repeats of "The Office" will fill the Thursday, 8:30/7:30c slot for the remaining four weeks of the season, network sources have confirmed to the site exclusively.

The April 21 episode of "Reiser" drew 2.377 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49, down from its already modest opener on April 14 (3.372 million viewers, 1.1 rating among adults 18-49).

Here's an interview with Brock Waidmann from June 2010 in Wheelchair. Brock was supposed to play one of Reiser's two sons.
