Nick Jonas Moving on From Broadway's "How to Succeed..."

Jonas Brothers Nick and Joe heading to NBC and Fox

Despite his best efforts, it looks like Nick Jonas couldn't help "How to Succeed..." stay in business.

Producers of the ex-hit Broadway show made it official last week following several months of sub-par box office returns, according to reports.

The revival of 1961's "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" played just more than 500 show since it opened in February 2011, recouping $9 million of an initial investment within a year thanks to its then-star Daniel Radcliffe, according to the Huffington Post.

Jonas took center stage in January and had signed on through July 1, but ticket sales took a dive: Last week, the box office took in just $368,000 out of a potential gross of $1,394,000, the Huffington post reported.  

"My producing partners and I are extremely grateful to the unbelievably talented company of actors and skillful crew that have given vibrant life to this show for over 500 performances," producer Michael McCabe said in a statement.

"What an amazing experience it’s been with @H2SBway! Thx to all my Finch fans, producers and fellow cast. Thanks #Broadway," Nick told his Twitter fans after hearing the news about the Broadway show.

But don't worry about scoring that next Nick fix, Wyckoff's favorite son will be reprising his role on NBC's Monday night musical drama "Smash" next week.

In other JoBro news, People recently learned that Joe Jonas would be appearing on the Fox reality show "The Choice" along with a slew of B- and C-listers and off-season-athletes. 

The reality show, which premieres June 7, is apparently Fox's take on the NBC singing contest "The Voice" starring that adorably tiny cat connoisseur Cee-Lo Green. 

Stars lined up for "The Choice" include Rhode Island's own DJ Pauly D, NFL tackle Ndamukong Suh and Carmen Electra.

Can you say Emmy? Neither can we.
