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.
