NBC Ends 'Chase' -- Adds Hour of 'Minute to Win It'

Game show gets two hours on Wednesday as network pulls low-rated freshman drama

NBC has pulled "Chase" from its primetime schedule, the network announced on Friday.

The freshman drama had been moved to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. after beginning the season on Friday nights.

In its place in the Wednesday lineup, NBC will air an extra hour of "Minute to Win It." The network experimented with airing a two hours of the game show this week -- and it delivered a 3.0 rating in the demo.

The last episode of the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Chase," by comparison, delivered a 1.2 rating in the same time slot.

NBC said it would air both new episodes and repeats of "Minute" at 8 p.m., followed by new episodes at 9.
