On a return date, Ausiello states:
As early as late October, my moles tell me. And while it remains unclear whether the little show that could (and has and shall again) would return to its Monday timeslot or find itself a new perch, NBC insiders who’ve seen the first four episodes are calling this season the best yet.
But wait, there’s more. If Chuck does come back sooner rather than later, the chances of NBC ordering additional episodes beyond the 13 it initially commissioned increases dramatically. And they increase further if it performs solidly… which for NBC, at this point, means my cat, Mister Scooch, sits down to watch with me. (Seriously, anything above a 2 rating in the 18-49 demo should do the trick.)
God bless you, Michael Ausiello (even though I still haven't forgiven you for the fact that you left TV Guide and thus ended the TV Guide Podcast).
To tie you over, after the jump, I present some exclusive pictures from SDCC and NYCC. All this, plus Jeffster!
