Has “Chase” been canceled?

Probably which is sad and that is why I didn’t start watching any new network shows this season. The cable shows don’t usually get canceled because they have more money than network so this Dallas show should do well on TNT. Althought I like Jesse Metcalfe, I don’t know if he is the right actor for this role but I sure hope he does a good job.
