They might burnoff the remaining shows on Saturday nights if it comes back.

I watched about 15 minutes of the first episode and it was absolutely dreadful.

Silverman gets another lesson on programming. We're sick of his reality crap! Too bad he's a failure as a student and programmer. He never learns. I wonder what his next reality gem will be.

L&O reruns of any year or show are better than most of the Silverman has ordered and promoted. He can't tell junk from quality and treats it all the same. What little good he has scheduled has been killed off because people are avoiding reality central NBC in favor of entertaining drama and comedy elsewhere.

Sure, the show can be a bit slow at times, but it's a rather good show and should be kept going.

Oh well, there's always Hulu!

This really tees me off. You start watching a show and it gets axed. There are so many other mindless shows that are not worthy of even being on. I know it is just my opinion but don't ask the question if you don't want the answer! DAMN!

This is CRAZY!! I would like to see the 5 final episodes, instead of repeats of law & order.

I hate it when the networks decide to axe a show in the middle of a season. I have watched all of the Chopping Block episodes and would have liked to see who won, why oh why could they have not just aired the remanining episodes....its better than re-runs of a previous show...crazy!!!!

Marco is an amazing individual. The show wasn't well advertised, and in a horrible time slot. Against American Idol? Planned failure. The show itself could have been better conceptualized.

Not surprising... I really enjoyed the show and Marco, but the contestants were unbelievably annoying.
