The Player's game is almost up. NBC has cut back on the show's freshman episode order, trimming its original 13 down to just nine. The move comes after a slow start for the action thriller, which has failed to draw significant viewership on Thursday nights at 10:00pm after its first five episodes.

For fans of The Player, the move unfortunately all-but-cancels the show. For now, four new episodes remain on the network's schedule, which has it signing off in mid-November.
