NBC has put the National Heads Up Poker Championship on indefinite hold, essentially canceling the show. With the loss of online poker sponsorship dollars in the United States, most US based poker shows have been canceled over the past six months. The HUPC has now joined those ranks, even though the show had excellent ratings and production values were not as expensive as many other shows. Just another thing to thank the Department of Justice for – A production crew out of work, a casino empty, a widely popular show canceled, and the economy gets that much smaller.
Of course we’re a little grumpy, but we loved the show! We built a whole website around it! And now it’s canceled! Grrrr.
