    CW is doing really good this year, the quality of their fall shows are surprisingly good.

    Cw should make plans to resurrect Chuck for their network bc like supernatural it has a small but loyal fan base! It would perform well for that network! Besides millions of chuck fans want it back including me!!!

  • Rebooted

    As long as were talking about reboots, I think Malibu Country would do well on the CW. It was the former home of beloved sitcom Reba!!

    Great to see the CCW having a better year than last year.

    @Josh – CHUCK!! I was just talking about that awesome show with a friend today. And the fact that it was just added to Netflix should help those wanting more action after binge watching!

  • Josh


    I have watched the entire series twice in only a month and just purchased the DVDs!! It’s amazing, I hope Netflix provides it with enough foot traffic for a reboot on cw!! Really is the best show bc it blends action, comedy and heart perfectly!! I’d give my left arm for a reboot!
