Chase (NBC) Cast

Good news for fans of CHASE and CHUCK. Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios, has announced that both shows have been picked up for the full season. “Chase has introduced an appealing new star to television audiences in Kelli Giddish and we think it has potential to grow,” said Bromstad. “We also are glad that Chuck will be with us for a full season delivering its loyal, passionate audience.”

Chuck, which is in its fourth season, is an action comedy starring Zachary Levi as Chuck Bartowksi, a regular guy who also happens to be the government’s most vital secret agent. Yvonne Strahovski, Adam Baldwin, Joshua Gomez, and Sarah Lancaster also star.

Through October 18, Chuck has averaged a 2.2 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 5.9 million viewers overall in “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research. Chuck is heavily time-shifted, adding 29 percent to its “live plus same day” 18-49 rating when Nielsen issued “live plus seven day” results for the opening two weeks of the season (to a 2.56 rating from a 1.99).”

Chase is a lightning-fast drama that showcases an elite team of U. S. Marshals that hunts down America’s most dangerous fugitives. Kelli Giddish stars as U. S. Marshal Annie Frost, a deputy whose sharp mind and unique Texas upbringing help her track down violent criminals on the run. Also starring are Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Rose Rollins, and Jesse Metcalfe.

Chase is averaging a 2.0 rating, 5 share in adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers overall in “most current” averages through its first five telecasts this fall. Like Chuck, Chase is heavily time-shifted, adding 21 percent to its “live plus same day” 18-49 rating when Nielsen issued “live plus seven day” results for the opening two weeks of the season (to a 2.66 rating from a 2.19).
