(CBS) Another one bites the dust.

Two days after canceling "The Playboy Club," NBC has pulled the plug on the low-rated, critically panned sitcom "Free Agents," Deadline reports.

The remake of the U.K. series of the same name starred Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn as PR execs who have a one-night stand and have to deal with the fallout at work. Its final episode drew a meager 3.3 million viewers, according to Deadline.

On Wednesday, Azaria begged his Twitter followers to tune in: "Okay, it's do or die time for my show Free Agents -- we need eyeballs tonight at 8:30 on NBC!! Watch tonight or we may go away."

If you're keeping track, this means that two freshman shows have gotten the ax ("The Playboy Club," "Free Agents"), and four have gotten full-season orders ("Up All Night," "Whitney," "New Girl" and "2 Broke Girls").

Tell us: Are you surprised to see "Free Agents" go?
