    In the battle of "Chuck" vs. the Network Suits, the Buy More geek has prevailed.

    NBC has granted Josh Schwartz's well-liked action-comedy another shot next fall.

    The network picked up 13 episodes of the series from Warner Bros., which, in an across-the-board trend this year, made some budget concessions to secure the show a third season.

    Here's what I posted in the Chuck v. Medium thread ... what do you think? Who's the best candidate to not return so that there's the least impact?

    I'd say it was dead on.

    Ok, so we know now that two shows have survived with orders to cut the budget. Times are tough in Hollywood. (That's a generic "Hollywood".)

    I'm glad it was renewed, even with the budget cuts. Sad it's only 13 episodes, but I guess that's a full season these days.

    WOO-HOO!!!! :hurah: :joy::biggthump:dance07::welcome::icon_da: :icon_bb:

    You just made my (Mon) day!!

    Maybe we'll get lucky and the ratings will be so good (partly due to the "save Chuck" campaign bringing the show to non-watcher's attention) that they will order up some more episodes half-way through the year!! I know that's probably unlikely but I'm a dreamer! :D

    NBC is now saying Chuck won't return to the lineup until after the Winter Olympics are done. So it looks like it will be a March-May run for the show. However we should see season 2 released on dvd around September to hold us over.

    They have also said that if it does well they will order up a full season and run it into the Summer.

    Hmmmm. Perhaps I should watch an episode before it's gone forever?
    When does it come on?

    I'm going to start paying people to watch Chuck, well I would at least offer if I thought it would do any good! I know I'm gonna be disappointed but I'm still going to be hoping against hope that this happens and we get to watch Chuck well into the summer. Maybe the in-store Subway promotion will be bigger this time and it will bring the show to more people's attention.


    P.S. I'm just kidding about paying people so don't start volunteering! :grin:

    I love that Chuck stole one of the greatest lines from the Matrix... and that it was his last line of the season too..

    As long as Agent Sara comes back, its all good!

    I honestly would have preferred the show ending on that note, but if it must continue then please remove chuck's kung fu!
