NBC Finally Discovers Celebrity Activity Public Not Interested In Watching


Sometimes "Online Only" denotes bonus materials specially developed for the internet, a now-vital distribution platform for the networks. Other times, as in the case of the almost simultaneously premiered and canceled Celebrity Cooking Showdown, it means "we spent million of dollars on this shit, but it's still not good enough for us to waste Bravo airtime we're using for Blow Out reruns, and we gotta dump it somewhere."

In fairness to NBC, we have to admit that the concept of Alan Thicke shouting barely audible cooking jokes over a screaming studio audience as Cindy Margolis dices carrots in a low-plunging top sounded like a winner. They never could've seen those "pathetic" Nielsens coming.
