NBC has cancelled the pop culture game show On the Cover before it ever made it to the air. According to Variety, the network had ordered 13 episodes of the series described as a cross between Entertainment Tonight and Jeopardy! in which contestants answer questions by looking at covers of magazines and other publishing and recorded media. Instead, NBC is focusing its efforts on producing an American version of the popular British game show, The Weakest Link.
