NBC Cuts to the Chase

... Having second thoughts happens to all of us. But when having second thoughts happens to a network, it doesn't look so good. After going on a renewal spree earlier this season, NBC has decided that a full season for lackluster Chase was perhaps not such a good idea. The network has cut the season order for the action drama from 22 episodes to 18 episodes. The chances of this show getting a second season? Not so good. [The Live Feed]

... Remember that Dora the Explorer lawsuit? Of course you do. Caitlin Sanchez, who provided the voice for the lead character, sued Nickelodeon, claiming she was unduly compensated. Well the two sides kissed and made up the American way: One side paid off the other side with cold, hard cash. Details of the settlement weren't disclosed, but I think it's fair to assume that Sanchez is the richest 14-year old on her block. [The Live Feed]

... The CW hasn't officially canceled Life Unexpected yet. But... it has been, according to a new DVD set for the show that's titled, "Life Unexpected: The Complete Series." As in, there's no more Life Unexpected coming. If you care, the DVD will be released on April 5. [TV Shows on DVD]

... Multiple award-winning actor Jeremy Irons (he played Scar in The Lion King!) will make a guest appearance on... Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He'll play a sex therapist who works at a sex-addiction clinic. Saucy! Keep an eye out in early 2011. [NBC]

... Anna Chlumsky, the little girl from My Girl, is all grown up and playing the chief of staff to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' vice president in Showtime's Veep. You have my permission to feel old now. [Deadline Hollywood]

... FX's Terriers wrapped up its season, and probably series, last night. And the numbers were better, but still not good. The total audience didn't even reach one million, averaging 784,000 viewers. 1.6 million tuned into the season premiere. [Broadcasting & Cable]

Terriers was a awesome show.. in a time where Glee's considered a phenomenon (rolling my eyes in disbelief) it's definitely a shame to see a show like Terriers canceled.. it will be missed.

Not surprised Chase was cut. I only saw the pilot and thought it was awful.

Terriers is a really good show. It sucks that it has most likely ended. Stupid people aren't watching it because they think it's about dogs...! Damn, another good show getting whacked because of stupid people. Sorry Terriers is not what they all want, more singing and dancing...

That's 2 strikes for Giddish. At leas Chase lasted longer than Past Life. She's not a bad actress. Hope the third starring role is her charm, a la Alex O`Loughlin.

i'm still amazed it lasted this long. chase while has some potential is a very poor mans in plain sight. they also need to develope the cast of not memorable characters. i don't even remember anyones names except the lead. hers is annie right? i mean we have white guy who's sorta like a boss who obviously has the hots for suicidal daddies girl. then we have black female former bomb tech who has more balls than the men in the squad and her and annie are obviously running low on estrogen. they have more testosterone than all 3 guys combined. next to the bounty hunter and the rich kid former bomb disarmer is the best character so far DX. annie would be better if she didn't try to kill herself to make up for the deeds of her father. most of the time the villains are far more likable (until they kill innocent people) than the entire cast

Give "Chase" a chance, it is actually one in the few shows that could pull characters out of thin air and give them a storyline, without having seen them. There is a connection between characters and audiences relate well with that kind of creativity in plots. It is not a standard show, it goes outside the line of what is normally screened on television, which also gives it a distinguished identity. They should have kept the full 22 episodes. It is just one of those shows that is not getting the necessary attention, because people don't understand how good the show could be. Each episode brings you closer and draws you in and they top it every week. The only issue is that this series is not well advertised, so not many people could appreciate it. Give this series a chance NBC, and give it another season, it might surprise you.

I was a little surprised that Chase should even have gotten more than it's initial 13 episodes so a cutback doesn't seem so strange. Although it still looks like it will run through the season.

For all that is the awesome and not smutty (aka reality tv).. please please please FX give Terriers more seasons. Don't make me put out a PB&J on you. I was more excited for Terriers than SOA, Dexter, etc. Seriously. I wasn't expecting to like it so much but it's really friggin good so it must continue because I say so! Life Unexpected is getting a lot better. I don't want to see that go either.

Agreed, I will drown a sack of kittens if they cancel Terriers. So tired of lame crap like Dancing with a Has Been and American Idol for a Year Then Forgotten.
