For more on what the renewal means, click here: CHUCK Saved! NBC Renews CHUCK for Season 3

But that doesn’t mean we can sit back and relax. If you’ve joined the herd, it’s time to be heard.  Do your part to get new people watching this summer. Keep reading below and use the tactics from the SAVE CHUCK campaign to get new people watching.


Sarah and Casey put their lives on the live everyday in order to protect the Intersect, but today it’s YOUR turn to save CHUCK.

If you are a fan of CHUCK I’m going to need YOUR help in order to help save the show. No, I’m not asking you to send any miniature Buy More dioramas to NBC (although if you’ve made one I’ve love to see it). I’m just asking that you simply take a minute to tell others why YOU love the show and why they should give it a shot.  What the show needs more than anything right now is an increase in the viewership. Let’s recruit a few friends to watch the show during these last three episodes of the season.

Inside the Intersect
To help you spread the word, TV bloggers from all over the Web are their thoughts on CHUCK this week. Check out what they have to say about CHUCK and then pass on the links to your friends (and foes – we are equal opportunity around here) and encourage them to watch CHUCK at 8pm on Monday nights! I’ll be adding new links to this page daily so keep checking back for the latest. Click here: Inside the Intersect

Please save this show. I don’t watch a lot of television, but this show is one I have suggested to friends to watch. Don’t ruin the only good thing about Mondays!

Chuck is what gets me through Mondays. It is the perfect mix of comedy, action, angst, and topped off with the adorkable Zachary Levi. I LOVE it!

This was the first episode I’ve watched of Chuck, even though I’ve heard nothing but praise for it….I’ve had no good excuses for not watching before now, but I can tell you I will be squeezing it into my already overburdened schedule…I cannot get enough of Buy More and the Nerd Herd!

    This show is great and i am hooked on it….please lets renew it

    While I am on cloud 9 about NBC finally getting the message from all of us CHUCK fans, last night as I thought about NBC’s decision it truly saddens me that they are not giving CHUCK the total support that this truly wonderful show deserves. To cut writers, and actors on screen time is very sad. Don’t get me wrong I am totally grateful for the 13 episodes that have been ordered, but what can we do now to really push CHUCK over the top to get a full season and many more. Maybe we could all contact Direct-tv and let them know how much we love CHUCK and they would do a deal with NBC for CHUCK like they have for Friday Night Lights where they help with the cost, and get to show CHUCK first. I know because of their partnership with NBC Friday Night Lights has been renewed for 2 years, and the ratings have never been that great for Friday Night Lights. I watch Friday Night Lights and think it is a quality show too. I will continue to wear my CHUCK shirts, and I have purchased CHUCK songs from itunes, I have a Buymore shirt on order from the NBC store, and will be purchasing the second season of CHUCK the first day it is available. I have CHUCK videos on my facebook page, and continue to sing CHUCK’S praises to anyone who will listen. I am open to any other suggestions to make sure our show is on for more than the 13 ordered episodes. I TRULY LOVE THIS SHOW.

    I’m am so glad that NBC renewed Chuck, but am unhappy that it won’t return until February of 2010. It seems like shows that start late in the season don’t have network support and end up not doing so well. I hope I am wrong about this one, but it’s hard to get momentum going for a show (other than one like Lost) when the hiatus is so long.

  5. Pat on May 19th, 2009 11:27 pm

    On the NBC site it says it won’t be on until March 2010. That is horrible to wait that long for our next CHUCK fix. I guess I will have to watch Season 1 and Season 2 until then. Yes NBC brought CHUCK back because of our efforts, but they sure don’t seem very committed to helping it succeed. With all the buzz over the save CHUCK campaign the fall would have been the best time to have CHUCK on. With the show starting so late it sounds like there might not be much hope for the other 9 episodes they talked about. Lets blow the ratings sky high so they have to commit to a whole season in the fall of 2010. So happy CHUCK is back but they really does suck. Maybe when one of their new shows fail that they think will do so good they will bring CHUCK back earlier. NBC still doesn’t realize what they have in CHUCK, but all the fans sure do.

    March is a long wait, but Chuck is back so, I can’t complain! I made this video to kind of celebrate Chuck’s renewal! Enjoy!

  7. Dave on June 12th, 2009 10:35 pm

    I am from Philippines, and I just started to watch its first and pilot episode last week, and Chuck change my habit. I just finished the first season (dvd) in 3 days. And I am looking for the season 2 right now and I wanted to finish watching it for the next coming week. I love Chuck-Sarah tandem, I hope on the season 3 they will be real partner.

  17. dorrk on August 8th, 2009 2:20 pm

    I’m from Turkey and i’m following the episodes by cnbc-e channel. I love the creators’ sense of humour and their ability to fit it into action. Zachari Levi is a talented actor and Adam Baldwin is the correct man for his role. Little action, little comedy: Chuck. Thet’s why i love this series. And i don’t want to be contended with 2 seasons with just 35 episodes. So please continue shooting it.

  18. Martin on August 21st, 2009 9:06 pm

    I can’t even imgine why this show should be cancelled. I watch many series on TV, and every single one of them sucks, compared too Chuck. My english is way too bad to express what I think about Chuck, and I dont think it’s needed. It’s a fantastic show, and I hope it will stay alive for a long time like the Simpsons or Friends (in a healthy way!). I hope someone who can make a diffrence see this and feel what me and millions of other does.

    PS. Forgive my bad english! 😀

    I just want to thank everyone who put forth their efforts to save “Chuck”. I am ashamed to say that I did not start watching “Chuck” until recently, but once I stated to, I was hooked. After watching a few episodes online, I went out and bought seasons 1 and 2, and in the span of two weekends, had watched every “Chuck” episode to date. Had all of “Chuck”‘s prior, loyal fans not made the effort that they did to save the show, I might never have discovered it, and that would have been a tragedy; thus, to everyone who falls into that category, thank you!!

    (Let’s hear it for a forth season!)

    This show is awesome!!!! The only reason I think this show has poor rating is because of the channel and badly promotion. LOVE THIS SHOW

    Hey Chuck Loving Friends,

    With this homepage, we try to bring together all Chuck fans worldwide and become one team.

    Now, Chuck fans from around the world are randomly distributed in more then thousand fanclubs and numerous fanpages. We are trying to build one team, a team with all the die hard Chuck fans who are willing to do their utmost to SAVE TEAM BARTOWSKI!

    With this we are also bringing the facts on the table. We are going to present the result of the poll to the producers, cast, advertisers, newspapers and NBC. We want to proof to them that there is a worldwide loyal support for this show.

    We know that Together Each Achieve More. Maybe we have lost a battle, but certainly not the war.

    We implore you to keep on fighting together for a 5th, 10th, and 15th season. To be honest, we want more Chuck , more awesome storylines, fantastic fighthing scenes, Chuck’s friendship, Chuck’s loyalty and romance.

    Chuck is one of those shows that has it all. It’s funny, dramatic, action packed and family based. I think that it’s a great show for people, especially young people, to watch as you can learn a lot from it. Ok so you might not ever become a spy and be out in life threatening situations, but almost everyone goes through the same emotions that the characters of chuck have. Without knowing it subconsciously the show teaches us how to deal with these emotions in everyday life. But this is all done with simple fun humour and thrilling action. When my brother first introduced me to this show I was immediately captured by it. I couldn’t wait to watch the next episode. If Chuck ends then it will be a great loss, I know lots of people that would love the show if they watched it they just need someone to tell them about it. Chuck is really a great show and I will really miss watching it if it’s cancelled so please keep Chuck going for more than 13 episodes!!!

  42. ash on June 29th, 2011 12:33 pm

  43. Jack Gilbert on November 15th, 2011 11:24 am

    Hi, my name’s Jack, here’s a few things you need to know or maybe you just forgot:
    I absolutely love Chuck, i used to be bored out my skull till my friend introduced me to this, im not hugely bothered if it completely ends, it can’t drag on forever and i appreciate that, but all i ask is that it’s on british TV, or if it already is, make it more widely known in britain so more people watch it, put Chuck on British TV.
    Also if people are that desperate to see Chuck still around, do a spin off or something involving his son or something like that, just make sure it’s a good actor that lives up to its predessessor
