NBC reduces order for 'The Cape'

Not a good sign: NBC has reduced its order for The Cape by three episodes.

So instead of 13 episodes, the network is only committing to 10. The move comes after a series low on Monday in the ratings (1.5 rating/4 share in adults 18-49, 5.3 million viewers).

This doesn’t mean the show is canceled but … with a new head of entertainment at NBC, who’s gonna save The Cape?

The news comes on the heels of Becki Newton, star of NBC’s much-delayed Love Bites, looking for a new gig. NBC definitely plans to promote the return of The Event, however, which just set a premiere date.
