NBC has seen enough of one of its low-rated dramas and has pulled the show from its midseason schedule, writes James Hibberd in Entertainment Weekly’s Inside TV blog.
The show is “Chase,” which has been a low achiever in its Wednesday slot. NBC tried out two hours of “Minute to Win It” instead this week, and the game show delivered a rating in the 18-49 demo that was better than double what “Chase” turned in the previous week.
“Minute to Win It” scored a 3.0 average rating, a big improvement on “Chase’s” 1.2, the story says. So NBC will go forward with a two-hour block of “Minute” on Wednesdays, including original episodes at 9 p.m. and a mixture of reruns and originals at 8 p.m., according to the report.
