NBC pulls 'Chase' from schedule

Posted on

Another apparent primetime casualty at NBC: The network has yanked under-performing drama Chase from its midseason schedule.

The network pulled Chase from Wednesdays after trying out two hours of game show Minute to Win It last night.

Minute delivered series-high numbers, including a very impressive 3.0 adult demo rating at 9 p.m. — much better than Chase‘s 1.2 rating last week. In the weeks ahead, NBC plans a mix of Minute repeats and originals at 8 p.m., with Minute originals at 9 p.m.

The move comes on the heels of the network reducing its episode order for The Cape, and releasing actors from previously planned midseason show Love Bites to pursue other projects.
