Chase: NBC Cuts Episode Order; Closer to Being Cancelled?

ChaseThe network giveth and the network taketh away.

Even though the Chase series performed poorly right from the start, NBC gave the TV show a full season order of 22 episodes. Now, the peacock network has trimmed back that order to just 18 installments.

On the positive side, NBC is moving Chase out of the Mondays at 10pm timeslot. It’ll no longer have to battle against Castle and the new Hawaii Five-0. Unfortunately, beginning January 12th, it’ll be airing in a far more competitive timeslot. Chase is moving to Wednesdays at 9pm where it’ll do battle with American Idol.

The most recent episode of Chase garnered a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.03 million total viewers. That’s the second significant increase in two weeks but the series is still doing terribly and is consistently in a distant third place for the timeslot.

TV show supportChase has averaged a 1.6 rating for the season, just slightly better than now-cancelled Undercovers. Unless there’s a significant turnaround, it’s pretty clear that Chase will be cancelled at the end of the season.

What do you think? Does Chase still have a chance to be renewed for season two or is it already doomed to be cancelled?

This has been one of the best shows I have seen for the longest while – I am so dissapointed that there is not a second season.

I like Chase, it’s a very good show. I believe ratings would be better if it wasn’t going against already well established shows like Hawaii Five O. It’s needs a time slot where it has a chance to capture new viewers. I think they should keep it on the air.

What is wrong with NBC? All the contest shows replacing a good show. No wonder we are all not watching NBC from now on. Why can’t it replace one of two or three nights of Minute to Win It or something similiar?

Is NBC listening or is it another one of the “It’s what America wants” and they are not asking real people.
