NBC has reduced the order for freshman series Chase from 22 to 18 episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chase and cult favorite Chuck were originally picked up for a full season in October, the day after NBC renewed its other first-year series Law & Order: Los Angeles, Outsourced and The Event. Chase started off reasonably well, premiering to 7.3 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demo, but viewership has since...
Skating with the Stars
Skating With the Stars had viewers moving faster than Apolo Anton Ohno — to other channels.
Overnight ratings showed that Dancing with the Stars had 24.6 million viewers (and a leading 5.2 rating among the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic), making it the...
30 Rock, Parks and Recreation
NBC is adding a third hour of comedy on Thursday nights, the network announced Monday.
The new lineup, which begins Jan. 20, will feature Community in its same slot at 8/7c, followed by the new comedy Perfect Couples, starring Olivia Munn and Kyle Bornheimer. The Office will remain at 9/8c, with Parks and Recreation returning at 9:30/8:30c.
NBC's Chase has cast Nia Long (The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Third Watch) in the role of Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa Randolph, described to me as a feisty lady who'll face off with ...
Kirsten Vangsness, Shemar Moore
Criminal Minds' quirky lab tech Penelope Garcia is about to show her BAU colleagues — and viewers — a side of her they've never seen.
On Wednesday's episode, the show will reveal that Garcia (Kirsten Vangness) spends her time outside the lab acting in a theater troupe. When Hotch (Thomas Gibson) finds out, Garcia begs him to keep it a secret from the rest of the group.

But the truth comes out when a woman dressed like a 1950s starlet is found murdered in an alley. In their investigation, the team discovers that her murderer, played by Prison Break's Robert Knepper, has cut off her lips in a deranged homage to his former movie star mother (Sally Kirkland). When a second victim goes missing, the team needs to draw the killer out, so Hotch calls on Garcia to use her acting skills...
Hawaii Five-0, Nikita
Despite a relatively lackluster development season, a few shows have struck a chord with audiences: CBS' Hawaii Five-0 has dominated on Monday nights and the CW's Nikita has proven that the network can launch more than shows for young women. Boardwalk Empire's record premiere bodes well for HBO, which already has a hit in its stable with True Blood. On the flip side, Lone Star's early cancellation shocked critics, if not the general viewing public. No such uproar greeted the axings of My Generation, Outlaw and The Whole Truth. For now, everything else seems to be treading water. Here's how we see fall TV's freshman class thus far...
Omari Hardwick (Dark Blue, The A Team) will guest star on an upcoming episode of NBC's Chase as Chris Novak, a hard luck criminal facing prison who escapes prison to exact revenge on those who betrayed him. While being hunted by Annie Frost...
NBC has picked up Chase and Chuck for full seasons, the network announced Tuesday.
13 bubble shows -- which will survive?
Since its Sept. 20 premiere, Jerry Bruckheimer's Chase has ...
Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv
Let's raise a glass (of something bubbly perhaps) to TV shows gone too soon: Here's to Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies, Moonlight, Freaks and Geeks, Veronica Mars, My So Called Life... we hardly knew ye. Here we are, just six weeks into the fall season, and we already have two more names to add to that list. (R.I.P., Lone Star and My Generation.) Which shows will be next? These 13 are in the most danger, due to low ratings, poor performances among younger viewers and other typical bad signs. Is your favorite show on the list?

In an episode titled "Above the Law," sparks fly between U.S. Marshal Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) and a bounty hunter (Cibrian) as they track down a white collar fugitive who's jumped bail...
