From Hibberd's mailbag:
Q: James I notice you didn't mention "Chuck" as looking "pale & shaky." At this point do you think it will get renewed? Given all of NBC's woes and how brutal the time period is? -- Paul
A: NBC is going to be pretty reluctant to get rid of "Chuck." They like the show, critics like the show, fans like the show. Its numbers have been weak recently, but to some extent you have to blame the ratings tide being out at NBC. This isn’t numbers-based answer I'm giving, it’s more just a sense that if NBC can find any way to make “Chuck” work, they will.
