NBC has yanked "Chopping Block" from its schedule after only three airings.

The reality series, which starred chef and restauranteur Marco Pierre White, drew under 2.6 million viewers in its latest airing on Wednesday (March 25) night. The show's 0.9 rating in the key 18-49 demo ranked a dismal fifth for the hour.

As of now, NBC has filled the show's 8 p.m. Wednesday hour with "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" repeats for the next two weeks at least.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC plans to run off the remaining episodes at some point, but given the network's stuffed summer schedule and given the dismal and declining figures for "Chopping Block," it's hard to imagine anything other than a Saturday burn-off.
