nbclogo-513After just three weeks on the air, NBC is pulling its weak performing original cooking competition series The Chopping Block.  According to THR’s James Hibberd, the network informed affiliates of the decision Thursday night.

Beginning this Wednesday, the show will be replaced with repeats of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The repeats will be episodes that have already aired on the network.  USA Network episodes will still make their broadcast debut on NBC starting on April 29th.

The Chopping Block premiered on March 11th with just 3.77M viewers and a 1.4/4 A18-49 rating/share.  In week two the show fell to just 3.40M viewers and a 1.2/4 A18-49 rating/share, before completely fizzling out last week with just 2.58M viewers and a 0.9/2 A18-49 rating/share (32 and 36 percent slides, respectively, from the already low series premiere).

NBC plans to burn off the remaining episodes sometime in the future.
