The episodes originally scheduled for broadcast have been pulled, to be replaced by reruns, which NBC hopes won't tank as badly as this series has thus far. How ignominious!

The final two episodes will air "ONLINE ONLY" on

And there was much rejoicing. In this office anyway.

WOW, that was quick. I didn't even know this show existed until I was flipping through the channels the night before this thread and heard Alan Thicke's voice. It should be noted that I subsequently only made it through four minutes of the show.

Never understood why people were supposed to care about watching C-list celebs cook. Good riddance to bad rubbish, as they say.

Thank GOODNESS. The episodes will run back to back on Saturday, because you want to capture that HUGE Saturday crowd. Wolfgang Puck Rulz!

What I learned: Diddy is exec producer of this show. Did he think this would draw that Iron Chef crowd? Cause all due respect to Iron chef, a pleasant enough program, I suspect its ratings wouldn't even have beaten the WB program.

If they had any known celebs (Calling Stacy Keibler!), maybe this might have gone.

I, myself, loathe all cooking shows as I find them all to be incredibly boring, but then I suppose that they're not attempting to capture the 18-24 white male demographic in any event. And they keep my mother off the streets and outta trouble (for the most part), so I suppose they're good for something.

"Dancing with the Stars" proved once again that people will tune in to watch C-list celebs do _almost_ anything.

Discovery Channel is sitting on a potential goldmine:
C-list celebrity crab fishing. I smell chum... and RATINGS~!

At least with stars dancing, it's a competition that the viewers can play along with at home. They can tell that Jerry Rice is better than Master P, and can argue amongst themselves if Stacy Keibler is better than Drew Lachey. With cooking, it's just like "Well, the food looks good. Too bad I'll never get to eat it."

My local NBC ran the final 2 episodes on Saturday. I didn't watch them though. Did anybody else's NBC run them?

Here's what happened:

NBC did pull the last two shows off for Thursday and Friday and were going to put them on

The first one did air on the website... and then NBC did decide to burn the two shows off on Saturday. That's why you saw what you did.

I'm guessing they used votes from online voting since the "Thursday" episode had in big letters above the phone numbers "VOTING CLOSED - DO NOT CALL"

Heee-larious and embarassing all at the same time.
