Are Things Looking Up for ‘Chuck’?

May 7, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Well, “Chuck” me.
NBC still isn’t expected to make a final call on its bubble shows until May 19, when it reveals exact details of its fall schedule. But there are signs that things just might be looking up for “Chuck,” the NBC comedy-drama we at MoJoe tend to write about as often as Perez Hilton mentions Lindsay Lohan.
Two Peacock insiders told us this afternoon that NBC executives have started taking notice of the massive Twitter- and Internet-based fan campaign to Save Chuck. “I think it’s working,” said one NBC source not given to overstatement.
Both insiders cautioned that there’s still no guarantee “Chuck” will get a pickup. But they said the fan campaigns to patronize sponsor Subway and to send Nerds candies to executives have impressed NBC suits.
Also helping things: The super-low ratings for this week’s return of “Deal or No Deal,” which attracted exactly half the young-adult audience as a typical episode of “Chuck.” NBC brass realize they could do a lot worse than “Chuck” on Mondays.
Stay tuned.

  3. Chuck is awesome!

  4. Oh that must be a comfort to Fedak and Schwartz, that NBC could “do a lot worse” than Chuck on Mondays! THEY ALREADY ARE: Heroes, Medium, Biggest Loser, Howie Do It, Celebrity Apprentice, a three hour block of Law & Order (! I didn’t know that – seriously?!?!) and freaking FIVE HOURS OF LENO A WEEK.
    Come on NBC, remember Must See TV? We know you can do it.
    Oh yeah SAVE CHUCK!!!

  5. Save Chuck!!! They’ll lose me for a long time if they cut the only thing worth watching in that time frame! I can always watch other episodes online…from their competition…or even better – read a book ; )

  6. Save Chuck!

  8. Chuck me and Chuck you, but SAVE CHUCK!

  9. Chuck is an amazing show and if they cancel it and replace it with another stupid reality TV show i will burn 30 rock to the ground.
