NBC pulls The Restaurant until June.
Rocco and Jeffrey’s catfights haven’t been dramatic enough to pull viewers in to the second season of The Restaurant, so NBC has pulled it off the schedule until May sweeps are over. The show “will rejoin the network’s schedule on Wednesday, June 9 at 9:00″ p.m. ET, the Futon Critic reports (last item). Three episodes, including the two-hour finale, remain, but NBC “plans to re-air the show’s second season from the beginning before moving onto the two yet-to-be-aired installments.” Tonight, a repeat of Crossing Jordan will fill the time slot.
