NBC’s ‘Chuck’ Gets New Life Thanks to ‘Southland’ Not Subway

Oct 29, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Even without its fans buying Subway sandwiches, “Chuck” is seeing new life at NBC, Variety reports.

The network–which came close to canceling the series in May and relented only because of a fan-driven Subway sandwich campaign–ordered six more episodes to run midseason, bringing its total order to 19 episodes.

The series was expected to return after the Winter Olympics in March, but with the cancellation of “Southland” and “Trauma” struggling, the network may need it as early as January.

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
