kelly giddish chase The 'Chase' is over: NBC pulls show from scheduleNBC has pulled its low-performing freshman drama “Chase” from the schedule.

A network rep tells Zap2it that the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced show is on “a hiatus,” but there are no plans at the moment to air the remaining episodes. (EW first reported on the show being yanked.)

NBC’s decision comes a day after an episode of “Minute to Win It” significantly outperformed “Chase’s” average at 9 p.m. on Wednesdays. The game show drew a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 9.5 million viewers, way ahead of “Chase’s” season average of 1.8 and 6.3 million viewers.

The network will air a two-hour block of “Minute to Win It” on Wednesdays going forward, with a mix of new and repeat episodes at 8 p.m. ET and original episodes at 9.

“Chase” is the third show NBC has axed this season, following “Outlaw” and “Undercovers.”
