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?

    Chase is a hit in our house. It’s exciting and the characters are fun and interesting. Nothing wrong with the heroine being a little larger than life. It’s entertainment and there really are people that are lerger than life. I hope a cable TV channle picks it up.

    Please reconsider putting CHASE back on. It was left hanging. I love this show. I love how it captivating us each and every episode. Please please put it back on. I never write to things but I feel strongly enough to say something. It’s one of the best shows you have on NBC.

    I LOVE THIS SHOW! There are very few programs on TV that I care about and this was at the top of the list. I thought it was well produced and I loved the cast. I am just sick that a program of this caliber is cancelled and such mindless trash remains. Disgusting.
