It was a fairly quiet Easter’s eve for network television viewers and a 55-year old movie won the night. ABC’s annual showing of The Ten Commandments tied Cops in the 8pm hour but otherwise beat out everything else on the schedule.
Chase quietly (secretly?) returned on NBC and few seemed to notice or care. The network hasn’t officially cancelled Chase yet but there’s no way it’ll be back. NBC has four more unaired episodes on the shelf and they’re supposed to air over the next quartet of Saturdays. Unfortunately, with ratings like these, the network could very likely get better success with reruns of other crime dramas.
