    Go Chuck! The show is doing fairly well considering the lack of advertising and the failure of most of NBC’s lineup. Even The Event is down to a 2.2, and that has had tons of money pumped into it.

    Thank you to Chase and Undercovers for falling well below Chuck as well.

    I think it is funny that House has the same amount of shares as Dancing, but half as many viewers.

    I’m surprised DWTS doesn’t have Cemeteries clamoring to buy ads in it. Those viewers have one foot in the grave.

    For a network that depends on “backend dollars” (i.e. DVD sales, syndication, etc), you’d think The CW would notice, week after week, year after year, that serialized dramas have zero value after their first airing.

    Maybe it’s me & my radical thinking, but seriously….how hard is it to find a couple comedies for the network? (And please, Dawn, enough about the “funny” moments in your dramas.) I’m talking Reba, Popular, Steve Harvey Show-type comedies. Look at their success after first-run. Now compare that with what you think Hellcats or Gossip Girl will bring in.
