    Celebrity Cooking Showdown Cancelled

    TheFutonCritic.com is reporting that NBC has cancelled "Celebrity Cooking Showdown". Here is the news release below:

    NBC Calls Off 'Cooking Showdown,' Episodes to Instead Air Online
    By Brian Ford Sullivan


    LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC is calling off its "Celebrity Cooking Showdown," as the show's final two installments - set to air tonight and Friday - will instead be webcast on NBC.com.

    Repeats of "Will & Grace" ("Love Is In The Airplane") and "My Name Is Earl" ("The Professor") will fill the 8:00/7:00c hour tonight with an encore of "Deal or No Deal" ("Episode No. 24") set to run tomorrow at 8:00/7:00c.

    The news comes after yet another disastrous performance for the series. Last night's installment took a distant fifth place among adults 18-49 in the 8:00/7:00c hour (a 1.6 rating) according to preliminary numbers, ahead of only "One Tree Hill" on the WB (a 1.2 rating).

    Ben Silverman, David A. Hurwitz and Sean "Diddy" Combs were the executive producers of the series.
    At least everyone will get to see the final two episodes. It would have gotten crushed majorly in the ratings against "Survivor" tonight.

    NBC cancels ‘Celebrity Cooking Showdown’ ?

    If that news article is correct, NBC is pulling this five-episode show after three have already aired?? That's pretty sad.

    Apparently the fourth episode will be shown on NBC.com, but what about the final?

    The official NBC "Celebrity Cooking Showdown" website says that Friday's episode will also be shown on NBC.com. It has been airing at 11 PM Eastern on Bravo (after it was shown on NBC). I don't know if Bravo will still air it or not.

    Cancellation of a one week show? Bwaaah!

    There WAS a fun factor to it. MAKING FUN OF IT!

    I might actually watch the online 'sodes if I'm bored this weekend.

    I blame Alan Thicke.
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
