Q&A: It may be the end of 'Chase' on NBC

It may be the end of 'Chase'

What has happened to the show Chase on NBC? I thought Annie Frost was a very compelling character and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Sure hope they haven't canceled it.

Sorry, but it's not looking good for Chase to continue running. While it hasn't been officially canceled, it is in limbo.

NBC originally ordered 22 episodes, then pared it to 18. Then on Feb. 3, it put the show "on hiatus," replacing it with Minute to Win It, and there are no plans right now to air the five episodes that were shot but never televised.

'NYPD Blue' was syndicated

Why are there no reruns of NYPD Blue? Was it never released for syndication? If so, why?

NYPD Blue, a gritty cop show that aired on ABC from 1993 to 2005, was perhaps best-known for its occasional nudity at a time when that was not the norm on TV.

The show did go into syndication, appearing on Court TV (now TruTV) and TNT, among other networks. There were 261 episodes made, so don't be surprised if it shows up again somewhere.

The first four seasons of the show are out on DVD, but it's unknown if or when the other eight might be released.

'Undercovers' canceled

What happened to that new show Undercovers? I can't find it anymore. Is it still on?

Undercovers, a spy show created by J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Josh Reims, was canceled in November by NBC. Thirteen episodes were made, and 11 have been shown. NBC hasn't announced anything about showing the other two.

'Law & Order' returns May 1

Can you tell me if Law & Order: Criminal Intent has been renewed for a new season ? If so, can you tell me when that is?

Law & Order: Criminal Intent returns for a 10th and as-of-now final season at 9 p.m. May 1 on the USA Network. It has been reported that the season will consist of eight episodes.

Original cast members Vincent D'Onofrio (Detective Bobby Goren) and Kathryn Erbe (Detective Alexandra Eames) have agreed to return for the final season. Both left the series in the ninth season premiere.

'Deal' apparently done

What happened to Deal or No Deal?

From what we can tell, for now it is a done Deal. Successful internationally, the U.S. version hosted by Howie Mandel proved a relatively short-lived phenomenon.

'Wipeout' filmed near L.A.

I was wondering if you know where the Wipeout series takes place.

It is done in Canyon Country, an area near Santa Clarita, Calif., which is about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
