Try tying a strong string to it and wrapping it with tape (so it won't catch on something), and try pulling on the cable a bit. The string will follow in to the wall if the cable isn't fastened down anywhere, then you can use the string to pull in a new cable.
(Electricians use that funky-looking blue and white string, with nylon or something woven in to it.)
What is in the wall is probably old RG-59/U. Just hope there are no old, old, old style splitters or taps in there someplace.
