I'd speculated this morning that based on Wednesday night's performance Chopping Block couldn't be long for the world.  It wasn't.   From James Hibberd:

NBC is pulling cooking competition series "Chopping Block" from primetime after three weeks, sources say.

The network informed affiliates tonight the reality series starring renowned chef Marco Pierre White will be removed from Wednesday's lineup.

NBC is fortunate to have Jay Leno's 10 p.m. talk show in the fall considering how many slots are getting cleared out this season. Counting "Chopping Block," six series are definitely not returning -- "Knight Rider," "My Own Worst Enemy," "Crusoe," "Lipstick Jungle" and "ER." A couple midseason reality shows, "Superstars of Dance" and "Momma's Boys," are also almost certainly gone. Four others are looking pale and shaky -- "Friday Night Lights," "Kath & Kim," "Life" and "Kings."
