Chaos' viewer numbers had fallen over the course of its brief run. It debuted April 1 with 6.4 million pairs of eyes. Its April 15 broadcast was viewed by just 5.5 million. The show was green-lit in November with a 13-episode pickup.
CBS has announced that Flashpoint will replace Chaos in the 8/7c slot on Fridays starting May 6. That series averaged 7.13 million viewers on Fridays last summer. CBS adds that Chaos is on hiatus and will "return to the schedule at a later date."
