headdesk – don’t look for a Chuck announcement on Monday
Update 3: Nikki Finke is reporting that pretty much everything but Life, and Knight Rider will be picked up by NBC and announced on Monday (actually she hasn’t mentioned Kath & Kim or My Name is Earl yet).
Update 2: Saturday May 2, 11:30A PDT: The Hollywood Reporter has updated its story on Southland’s renewal (Southland is still renewed) to include the following:
However, NBC is not expected to make a final decision on the fate of all of them by Monday, with fan favorite “Chuck” among those who will remain in contention beyond the infront.
So it looks like we’re just going to have to wait.
Update: Saturday May 2: from our friends at Watch With Kristin on E Online:
When asked last night at an Eva Longoria Parker-hosted charity event benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles about prospects for a third season of Chuck, Levi said, “I thought we were going to hear about it this Monday because NBC’s announcing a bunch of its schedule, but I just got an email from [Chuck executive producer] Josh Schwartz, and he said stay positive, [but] we’re not going to find out on Monday. It could be another week or two. They’re making their final tallies and decisions.”
Saw the following from Michael Ausiello on Twitter:
BREAKING CHUCK UPDATE: Hearing NBC may not make a decision on Monday as expected. I’m told not to read anything into that. Developing…
Like many of you, I wasn’t expecting the full schedule announcement from NBC on Monday, but was expecting announcements about which series would be returning. I hope what Ausiello is hearing is not true, but if it is, it’s currently hard to read anything into it. If NBC winds up delaying announcements for all shows, then there’s absolutely nothing to read into that. But, if NBC is only delaying the annoucement for Chuck, however, I would definitely read something into it and that’s that NBC and Warner Brothers are still negotiating.
