Much as I love Chuck, a show much better than its premise suggests it should be, a show lives and dies on its own merits.

Re: TV Ratings (Monday 3rd March)

Winners...
TBBT, HIMYM, The Bachelor, The Bachelor ATFR, Two and a Half Men, Rules of Engagement and CSI: Miami
Still going strong...
24
In trouble...
Chuck, Heroes and Medium

Round-Up...

The Bachelor proves that weird people are back in mass to watch TV these days by giving it a huge season sendoff and infact its lucky the ratings have been a massive improvement or recent years as it was rumored to be ready for the chopping block last season.

CBS has a typical night though CSI Miami was displaced as the number one 10pm show but am sure it was only a blip since The Bachelor was airing a season finale. RoE returned and proves that its a better partner than Worst Week though RoE will never be more than a time filler just like Old Christine found out this season. If I was CBS though I think its easier to launch a new sitcom next season in the 8-9 slot and TBBT proved earlier that it would make a perfect partner for Two & Half Men or they could put TBBT at 9pm with 2&HM at 9:30pm.

24 hit a season low but still solid numbers for a 8 year old show airing its 7th season though the demo could be a little better.

Chuck has lost all steam and is 40/60 IMO unless the numbers rise and despite Heroes downfall, am sure the demo will get the show one more season. Heroes could benefit from a budget cut to focus on characters more and a smaller cast would be better with the likes of Claire being cut. Heroes will probably get a 4th season 22 episode order but it may need a new night and a bit of luck...write season 4 as the last, if I was Tim & Bryan. Medium is down as well and unlike the other two, I feel theres no reason for NBC to keep if they are cutting air hours next season so most likely goodbye Medium.

CW - Repeats

So NBC is in trouble? What's new there?

I think Chuck will be fine, hell I think all the shows on NBC Monday will be fine.

Re: TV Ratings (Monday 3rd March)

to be honest I would be surprised if Heroes was axed this season, I fully expect it to get a 4th, maybe half season, with the 2nd half to be decided on later, but it should get a 4th

Volume 5 of Heroes is titled "Intelligence." They started writing it three weeks ago, but as of now the first page is still blank.

Now it makes sense! They didn't want to use it all up in advance.

Medium is safe for sure.

Chuck has to cost at least half the amount of so called Heroes (They should rename the show Losers) and get's about the same ratings so Chuck should stay and Heroes go if anything.

That seems about right.

Re: TV Ratings (Monday 3rd March)

The creators of Chuck are very optimistic about their chances for a third season. So are most of the experts. They've all but said they're going to get one. The network likes the show and so do the critics. It's the top downloaded show on ITunes and it's very popular on Hulu. And it's still their 5th highest rated show. The truth is that Chuck is down because NBC in general is down. If NBC was doing good, Chuck would be doing good. As it's been said before, when it's allowed to run uninterrupted week after week it starts to build and starts to put in decent numbers. It's when NBC puts them on hold do they stumble. Having a brand new genre show go up against the most powerful prime time shows around on the most competitive night in television is asking for trouble. Making it the lead in to Heroes doesn't help either. Honestly you could put The Office in their slot and they'd still only do slightly better on a night like that. My Name is Earl would actually do worse. What they need is a move to Sundays. All I really want is a decent wrap up if the worst should happen. I might die of saddness if I don't get that.

I know alot of people who have said they like Chuck and would totally watch it every time it was on. But not over Two and A Half Men and How I Met Your Mother.

Heroes has no one but themselves to blame. You know, I'll defend parts of the second season. The Hiro in Fuedal Japan arc was good. Matt vs Daddy Dearest was decent. So was their examination of The Company. And yeah, they had to change alot around because of the writers strike. But even then they seemed to be recycling storylines heavily borrowed from the first season. Except that the characters got dumber. But they at least had an idea of where they were going. But this season? I know it has its fans, but it just seems that they're just doing stuff without any sense of a narrative. Alot of the stuff this season is so random and out of no where, it just seems like they're throwing shit against a wall hoping that something sticks. Entire storylines are forgoten(last time I checked that Irish chick was still in trapped in the future) to make room for a reboot that really doesn't make a lick of sense when you just think about it. It reminds me of the latter days of Xena and Hercules, and that's not a good thing.
