New NBC Programs Preview

OK, Like all the other networks NBC has announced their new shows for next year. Now why am I only focusing on NBC’s shows? Its because they are the only ones who have included full length trailers with them. The Survival rate of new shows is very slim. Some might get a full season then pulled while others might only last 2-3 episodes and then die a horrible horrible death. Although with Jay moving back to 11:35. It frees up 5 hours of programing that they need to fill… so its possible some of them might get a better chance then usual.

nbc 2010 new shows

I have ranked the 11 new shows from what i think looks the best to worst. (click on the name to view trailer)

1. The Event – The most intriguing trailer for a series in a long time. Maybe this could be the new “lost”. Serialized shows can be hit or miss with viewers, I really hope this one is a hit.
Chance of of Survival: MED

2. Undercovers – From JJ Abrams, this has a lot of potential, although its hard to see how this show will last.
Chance of of Survival: MED

3. Perfect Couples – To me, i thought this looked really funny and has a great Cast. I hope it will be the “modern family” of nbc but i have a feeling this one wont make it past one season.
Chance of of Survival: LOW

4. The Cape – So they cancel heroes and instead go with this. It could be good or it could get the Summer Glau curse and be canceled.
Chance of of Survival: LOW

5. Outsourced – With the Office possibly ending, this might need to be kept around to fill its spot. looks pretty funny too.
Chance of of Survival: MED

6. Chase – pretty much CSI: US Marshall Cop show. Looks entertaining, but honestly… do we really need this show? but america loves these types so it could last.
Chance of of Survival: HIGH

7. Outlaw – Courtroom Drama yada yada. Every year we get one of these shows. But this one looks kinda ok. I have no clue how this will pan out.
Chance of Survival: MED

8. Love Bites – If you like Sex and the City mixed with B-C list celebs coming in every week this show is for you. I dont think its for me though.
Chance of Survival: MED

9. The Paul Reiser Show – Curb your EnReiserasum. Could work but since its on NBC it wont have the “edginess” that curb does. I have a feeling this will fail.
Chance of Survival: LOW

10. Friends with Benefits -Honestly, this looks pretty bad. I am a little sad about that considering its from the guys who made 500 Days of Summer (a Movie that i loved.
Chance of Survival: LOW

11. Harry’s Law – There is no way I would ever watch this. But who knows, David E Kelley has been successful before.
Chance of Survival: MED

Chuck vs. Season 3

Chuck vs NBC

GOOD NEWS! NBC Annouced that Chuck will be returning for a 3rd season! (thankyou to everyone who bought a Footlong at subway)
But sadly the good news comes with a price…

The season will now only contain 13 episodes.
The Budget is being cut down big time.
Several members of the fantastic supporting cast will only make appearances in a limited number of episodes.
And one might not return at all…

So looks like in this battle we have taken many scars and a limb or two was blown off… But we did win the war.
Chuck is coming back.

UPDATE:
Chuck will return in March (after the Olympics)

Chuck vs. The Peacock

Chuck

The Television show Chuck that stars Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski had its Season 2 Finale last night. Many parts of the this season’s ending felt like it was preparing for the end of this loved show. But with a sudden twist, Chuck finished with a jaw dropping new idea which would make season 3 very exciting. “to be continued…” appears on the screen leading us to believe there will be more, or will there?

NBC has not renewed this series, in fact its one of the shows that is on “the bubble”. Chuck which has had average ratings has not been the cash cow NBC was looking for. Which is too bad cause Chuck is one of the finest hours of tv out there. It has Comedy, Action, and Romance. Not to mention a geek factor where most episodes give a shout out to well liked TV shows and movies.

I could start going on a rant about how much i hate NBC. First canceling My Own Worst Enemy and now killing a new fav of mine; Kings. But going on and on about how horrible NBC is wont help anything. But the truth is, if they cancel Chuck. It gives me no reason to ever watch NBC ever again. ever. This will be a deal breaker for me.

So for the sake of NBC. Lets help SAVE CHUCK. show some support.

Sign the Petition

Email NBC and tell them.

——————————————————————————————-

Also a brilliant campaign is on to help save chuck by going to Subway.

buy a $5 footlong from Subway and drop a note in the comment box at the franchise letting them know you’re participating in the Footlong campaign to save NBC’s Chuck, of which Subway is a product placement sponsor.

or Save your footlong receipt and mail it to NBC saying that you bought a footlong to help save Chuck.
