NBC Pulls 'Rock Center With Brian Williams' For May Sweeps

NBC has pulled "Rock Center With Brian Williams" for the remainder of May Sweeps.

The newsmagazine show will be replaced by reruns of "Law and Order: SVU," according to TVNewser. May, of course, is a critical month when ratings are used to determine ad rates.

The NBC newsmagazine has struggled with ratings since debuting with an all-star roster last fall (its contributors include Meredith Vieira, Ted Koppel and Chelsea Clinton). It does, however, have a three-year commitment from NBC.
