Through social media and other online complaints to Game Show Network, it has been noted by the public that on non-high definition televisions and cable providers that do not offer GSN HD, the multiple choice questions during "The Chase" round are more difficult to read than the previous two seasons.
"The Chase" round on The Chase consumes about 21 minutes of the 42 minute airtime.
The on-screen text has also been found more difficult to read than questions and answers on Family Feud on GSN and Who Wants to be a Millionaire? elsewhere.
It has also been reported by the public that the closed captioning overlaps the multiple choice questions during The Chase.
