NBC Cuts 'The Cape' Episode Order

The Cape

NBC has cut the episode order for midseason series The Cape.

The struggling Monday night drama will now only produce 10 episodes instead of its initial 13-episode order.

Starring David Lyons as caped crusader Vince Faraday, the series launched modestly in January with less than 9 million viewers tuning in for its two-hour Sunday premiere.

The decision comes after the latest episode drew a series low 1.5 rating with 5.3 million viewers. Its Chuck lead-in didn't help either, also drawing a series low last night.
