NBC May Cancel 'The Chopping Block' After 3 Episodes


There are words that the chef Marco Pierre White-hosted cooking competition, will be out of the primetime schedule starting next week.

There is a chance that "The Chopping Block" fate is on the chopping block itself. NBC reportedly is looking towards cutting the reality show after only three episodes. The Hollywood Reporter which was first to report, noted that the cooking show will be absent from the screen starting next Wednesday, April 1.

The changes are as informed by NBC sources that also dished out that there's a plan to air the remaining episodes "at some point". The vacant slot will then be filled with the re-run of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" episodes. These are the repeats of the episodes that only ran on USA Network. The series' eight season will still premiere as scheduled on April 19.

Since debuted on March 12, "The Chopping Block" which attempts to compete with FOX's "Hell's Kitchen" has opened with mild numbers. The March 26 episode absorbed only 2.6 million viewers, a far comparison to "Law & Order" that aired two hours later and earned 7.2 million viewers.
