LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC has announced the series launch date for the new comedy starring Paul Reiser.

"The Paul Reiser Show," a single-camera program, will premiere on April 14 at 8:30 p.m., replacing struggling freshman comedy "Perfect Couples".

"Couples," which launched midseason, will still have a few episodes left in the can, though no decision has been made on when, or whether they will be shown.

"The Paul Reiser Show" stars the "Mad About You" actor as himself. A few years removed from starring on a hit TV series, the show will follow him as he gets into trouble and adventures with a new group of "friends," most of whom he didn't choose because they're husbands of his wife's friends and dads of his children's classmates.
