Chase'Chase' fans, your show is in trouble. NBC has cut the order of episodes from 22 to 18.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series has struggled in ratings and come January it will go against Fox's 'American Idol.'

The drama about U.S. Marshal Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) and her squad of fugitive chasers has failed to deliver in the coveted 18-49 demographic. Its most recent episode brought in a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49.

The show is really good. My husband and myself both love watching the action. The show also teaches you things to do with fugitives and how some are not all bad, just trying to survive sometimes with the rest of the world. It also lets us know that we should be aware of our community at all times. I watched all of the CSI's and Law & Orders, Chase is just as good as those shows. Please, consider keeping it on the air. It might just need a little longer for people to recognize its potential.

I will watch Chase or any other program other than American Idol. I have not watch American Idol in the last couple years. I have thoughts of manipilation by producers of who gets picked and who does not. I do not like it when judges act like jerks and insult and laugh at perpective hopefuls. Understand there major changes of judges this year. It seems, I guest, to insult others is a way to increase rating. However, ratings did decline. Not sorry about that, they got what they deserved. Please network, do not give up on Chase. Viewers will be looking for something else if they continue with there efforts of humorism at others expense.

Did watch America's Got Talent. Did not find that as offensive. Notice there was a considerable amount of munipulation in America's Got Talent when they broke down to the finals of 12 & 12 for 2 nights. Michael Grimm certainly is talented, but not the best.

I like Chase too. Alright, the plots all follow the same format, but they had some girl-on-girl action last week. Kelli Giddish is a hottie.

I watch CHASE regularly. Love the cast and the story-line, but wish the main character--Marshal AQnnie Frost--were a little more "feminine" acting. Her character is oh, so macho that I think it misses the boat. Maybe just a little more femineness might make for a better fit?
