NBC yanked an episode of The Weakest Link late Monday only hours before airtime when it learned that the winning contestant, Julie Harmon, had been married to NBC Studios president Ted Harbert 15 years ago. An NBC spokeswoman said that no one connected with the show had previously known of the prior relationship between Harmon and Harbert. Harbert himself said that he had not been in touch with his ex-wife for years. Harmon, who won $92,000 on the show, will probably keep the money, reports indicated.
