NBC is putting Chase on hiatus, a network rep confirms.
Beginning Wednesday, NBC will replace the freshman drama with a second hour of Minute to Win It.
The move comes a day after the game show posted series-high ratings — 9.5 million viewers and a 3.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo — in Chase's normal 9/8c timeslot. The most recent new episode of Chase drew 4.17 million viewers and a 1.2 rating.
Chase received a full season pick-up from NBC in October. The network later scaled back their order from 22 to 18 episodes. There are still five new episodes left to air.
The news was first reported by The Futon Critic.
