NBC Resurrects 'The Chopping Block' for This June


Previously taken out of the Wednesdays slot, 'The Chopping Block' will be back to fill the Fridays in June.

NBC apparently has not lost its faith in reality cooking competition, "The Chopping Block". The network is looking forward to give it a second chance by putting it in the Fridays slot for the remaining five episodes. Network sources, according to Futon Critic, have confirmed this.

The show was yanked out of the Wednesdays air time after only three episodes last month. It has since been replaced by the re-run of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" episodes with a plan to air the remaining episodes "at some point". The plan is now to have it aired starting June 19 at 8/7c and ending July 17.

Since debuted on March 12, "The Chopping Block" which attempts to compete with FOX's "Hell's Kitchen" opened with 3.9 million viewers according to Nielsen Media Research. It dropped in rating up to the third episode that withdrew 2.6 million.

"The Chopping Block" is a cooking competition that challenges teams consisting of two people in a bid to open their own restaurants. The fourth to the episode before the finale have been aired online following the yank.
