Chuck Premieres to Strong Ratings

I thought this could use its own thread!

http://tvbythenumbers.com/2010/01/11...ings-yay/38337

For the first hour Chuck average 3.0 rating with adults 18-49 and 7.7 million viewers and the second hour averaged 2.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 7.2 million! That is a great turnout! Whoo!

Good numbers. I hope there's not too much of a dropoff against stronger competition tonight.

Using NBC's flawless decision-making skills, this also means they're going to order 30 more episodes and air them once or twice a week, completely saturating the airwaves with Chuck until everyone gets sick of it.

^ More likely, they'll order 30 more episodes, then when the show loses a small fraction of viewers on its second night, they'll move the show to Fridays, where it'll lose more viewers. A week later, NBC will put the show on hiatus and then burn off whatever they had left in July.

Re: Chuck Premieres to Strong Ratings

Much better than I thought it would do. It was advertised heavily but on NBC and you have to discount it automatically for that.

But I dunno if it will hold up. The show was pretty heavily aimed at existing viewers, who are the only ones who would give a flying fribble about the Chuck & Sarah romance. Anyone who's new to it would wonder why they were wasting so much time on the girly stuff and not showing more kung fu.

Tell that to my mom. She had never seen the show before and was already freaking out 5 minutes into the premiere when Sarah throws her phone in the pool.

"Why would she do that to him?!"

I need to get my sister into this show. She liked the O.C. and she does have her geeky side (like seeing Serenity with me in Theaters and watching Firefly with me).

Re: Chuck Premieres to Strong Ratings

Last night's numbers were down slightly, but they were the highest ratings in its timeslot since the Chuck 3D episode after the superbowl.

The irony is that Chuck was an idiot and deserved it. Sarah should run off with
nyah nyah.

I just thought it was funny that my mom reacted at all having never seen the show before. I responded by going, "Haha, you already love it!"

Really? Chuck should have been willing to run away from his best shot at a real career with any real accomplishments, from his (self-imposed) obligation to make Bryce's sacrifice mean something? He should run away from his family and friends, and accept that he'll never see them again? He should go AWOL and turn himself into a fugitive from the government?

All because Sarah wants to, when Sarah has so much less to lose than Chuck?

I adore Sarah and understand why she did that. She had, after all, demonstrated to Chuck that she'd go AWOL for him, and she had come to realize that her life has been lived under the thumb of the CIA ever since her father was arrested. And she had come to realize how much she was missing out on a real life with someone who genuinely loves her by being with Chuck. But she wasn't being particularly rational, nor did she really pause to think about things from Chuck's point of view. She never really paused to realize how much more she was asking Chuck to give up than Chuck was asking her to give up.

And she dumped him, remember that. Chuck didn't break up with her, he just didn't want to go AWOL with her. She was the one who ended their relationship (such as it was).

L.A. Times says that Chuck fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

^I can't say I was terribly worried considering how many episodes had already been ordered for this season.

True, but if the ratings remain solid, that increases the probability of a Season Four.

True. However, for the sake of my sanity, I have decided that this will be the final season (and I will let Season 4, if it happens, be a pleasant surprise!).
