NBC is cutting the low-rated new sitcom "Free Agents" loose.

The comedy is the second casualty of the fall season, both at struggling NBC. The drama "The Playboy Club" got its cancelation notice earlier this week.

"Free Agents" starred Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn. NBC said Thursday that the sitcom's last airing was on Wednesday.

The comedy drew 3.3 million viewers for this week's episode and finished fourth in its time slot. By comparison, the new NBC sitcom "Up All Night," which preceded "Free Agents" on Wednesday, was watched by 5.6 million and showed audience growth from the previous week.
