Updated with blurbs from NBC PR below.

Bill will have the full overnight report up shortly, but the first hour of the season 3 premiere of Chuck averaged  3.0 rating with adults 18-49 and 7.7  million viewers and the second hour averaged 2.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 7.2 million.

These were the best numbers since last year’s 3D episode the Monday after last year’s Super Bowl.  Definitely a strong premiere for a scripted show by this year’s standards on NBC.

Now of course, the focus shifts to how much of those #s Chuck can hold on to tonight.

Here are the blurbs on Chuck from NBC PR:

  • From 9-11 p.m., a special two-hour Sunday third-season debut of “Chuck” (2.9/7 in 18-49, 7.4 million viewers overall) captured the show’s highest 18-49 and total-viewer results since February 2, 2009, the night of a special 3-D episode aired one day after the Super Bowl.  In key male demos, “Chuck” delivered its highest ratings since December 3, 2007.  In the time period, “Chuck” ranked #2 among the major networks in all key adults-male demos — men 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 — and #1 in those male categories from 10-11 p.m.
  • Versus its “live plus same day” average for originals last season, “Chuck” was up last night by 21 percent in 18-49 (2.9 vs. 2.4) and up 12 percent in total viewers (7.442 million vs. 6.624 million).
