Tuned In

Chuck Up!

There actually is some good news for NBC today, even if, naturally, it comes from a show that the network was once on the verge of ensuring would never see another season. The double-shot season premiere of Chuck got the spy comedy-drama its best ratings since its 3D stunt episode last year.

Celebrate, but don’t relax prematurely—after all, Chuck’s near cancellation came after that huge 3D show last year and a subsequent fall-off in the ratings. But it’s the only good news NBC has had from a scripted show in a while, and considering how the bar for renewal must be lower at post-Jay Leno Show NBC, the chances are looking good that we may be able to keep Chuck on the air even without eating Subway sandwiches.
