NBC Goes All the Way With ‘Chuck’

Aug 27, 2008  •  Post A Comment

NBC is giving a big thumbs-up to “Chuck.”
The network said it has ordered the back nine episodes of Josh Schwartz’s Warner Bros. TV-produced spy comedy, ensuring a full second season of at least 22 episodes of the show.
NBC made the order after viewing the first six episodes of “Chuck’s” second season.
“We couldn’t be more excited with the creative direction Josh (Schwartz) and his team are executing on ‘Chuck,'” said Teri Weinberg, NBC’s head of development and current programs. “This show has really hit its stride and deserves a full-season commitment to carry out the producers’ vision for this unique series.”
It’s highly unusual for a network to stick out its neck so early on such a young show, especially one from a studio it doesn’t own. Networks generally order 13 episodes of sophomore shows; it’s not until a show’s third season that full 22-episode orders become the norm.
Making the “Chuck” greenlight even more impressive is the fact that the show hasn’t aired since January. That means NBC hasn’t seen any recent ratings data for “Chuck.”
“Chuck” will return to its 8 p.m. Monday time slot next month, facing off against several big shows—including Mr. Schwartz’s own “Gossip Girl.”

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
