NBC is constantly the fourth place network of the major networks (ABC, NBC, and FOX round it out), yet the network still has a little bit of pride. Reports indicate that rookie drama Chase has been reduced from 22 episodes down to 18. If you recall, NBC gave the series a full season order earlier this fall, but I guess that still wasn’t a guarantee.
Chase is averaging a hair under 5.5 million viewers per episode, which fails in comparison to even the other weak shows on the network. Don’t be surprised if the show gets canceled soon.
