NBC yanks 'Celebrity Cooking Showdown' with two episodes left to air
UPI News Service, 04/20/2006
NBC has put its "Celebrity Cooking Showdown" on the back burner after three nights of disastrous ratings on U.S. television.
The Peacock Network announced the final two episodes of the culinary competition -- scheduled to run Thursday and Friday -- would be relegated to its Web site for the handful of viewers who tuned in Monday through Wednesday, TVWeek.com reported.
The open Thursday night time slot was to be filled with reruns of "Will & Grace" and "My Name Is Earl," while a repeat of "Deal or No Deal" was planned for the Friday 8 p.m. hour, NBC said in a statement.
