NBC Pulls Jesse Metcalfe Drama 'Chase' Off Schedule Due to Poor Ratings

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — NBC has pulled low rated Texas drama “Chase” from its schedule effective immediately after seeing how cheap game show “Minute to Win It” pulled in triple the numbers “Chase” had been scoring in its new Wednesday at 9:00 PM timeslot.

The Jerry Bruckheimer produced series from Warner Bros. Television stars “All My Children’s” Kelli Giddish and “Passions”/”Desperate Housewives” alum Jesse Metcalfe as U.S. Marshals chasing down America’s most wanted.

Officially “Chase” is on “hiatus,” but there are no plans to air the remaining episodes at this time according to NBC sources.

In October, NBC ordered a full 22-episode season for the series, but cut the order down to 18 in December. Only 13 episodes have aired through January 26, leaving five episodes in the NBC vault.
