Philly women booted off `The Chopping Block'

NBC shelved the reality show, but you can see the episode of Angie Brown and Samantha Johnson's swansong online.

Philly women booted off `The Chopping Block'


NBC put the cooking reality series "The Chopping Block" on the shelf after three episodes, and would not say when it might be revived.

Episodes 4 and 5 are now on Hulu.

Sorry for the spoiler -- you actually watched it? -- but at the end of No. 5 you see the departure of mother-daughter team Angie Brown and Samantha Johnson, who own Soul, a Chestnut Hill BYOB.

Host Marco Pierre White snarls at them as they stalk off into the night.

The team's restaurant on the show was named Soul. Brown says she and her daughter came up with that name, and decided to use that name for their own restaurant because "it was a tribute to me coming back after that experience."
