Paul Reiser

Paul Reiser's NBC comedy project has finally found a home, and a date.  His show will premiere April 14, displacing the network's 'Perfect Couples' to bubble show purgatory.  With two episodes left to air, its odds for renewal are not good.

Reiser's show, cleverly titled 'The Paul Reiser Show,' will feature him as a guy named Paul Reiser, who lives with his wife and kids and hangs out with other dads.  It's a single camera comedy, and the first major TV project for Reiser since 'Mad About You' ended in 1999.

The announcement comes on the heels of NBC's announcement last week that it renewed 'Community,' 'Parks and Recreation' and 'The Office.'  '30 Rock' had previously been renewed for a sixth season.  Speaking of 'The Office,' it has been revealed that Ricky Gervais will make his second appearance on the show in the season finale, and will be joined by 'Arrested Development''s Will Arnett.  Stay tuned.
