Ratings: Chuck Spies a Series Low - Featured

Monday's ratings recap:

* 8 pm/ET

House dipped a bit yet still topped the hour with 14 million total viewers. Placing second, The Bachelor (12.5 mil) courted 15 percent more viewers than a week ago.

Chuck came in fourth (behind CBS sitcom repeats) with 6.75 million viewers - a 19 percent plunge from its 3-D showcase, a 600K drop from its most recent 2-D outing, and the series' lowest rating ever for a fresh eppy.

* 9 pm

24 gained six percent and added viewers across the hour, averaging 11.16 mil. Leading out of a Two and a Half Men rerun, Worst Week's finale managed 8.7 mil (down 13 percent). Heroes sagged a bit, to 7.74 mil.

* 10 pm

Opposite a warmed-over CSI: Miami, Medium (8.94 million viewers) super-sized its audience by 13 percent, while True Beauty (7.04 mil) added 220K to its last Monday outing.

This is heartbreaking beyond all belief. I think I would be most devastated if Chuck doesn't survive beyond this season...

Wow...Last nights chuck was just fantastic. I can't believe people watched those lame ass sitcom reruns instead.Best episode yet.

SPOILER:Chuck gets imprinted with the Fulcrum database alongside his other information.

Just curious, how do they measure the amount of people who watch the show? I agree w/ RachelL. I would be devastated if Chuck didn't survive another season.*edit (keep on making typos)

I think they use the nielson system where they monitor what a percentage of people are watching and then gross it up so to speak from that to what the country is watching.My big issue is like why take the show off for a week, when you have a huge ratings hit the week before and keeping the ball rolling would only help the show. Doing what they did really messed with the continuity and the buzz to keep the ratings going well.I do however love the show i think it rocks hard, so funny and so unique compared to the entire beautiful people in beautiful enviroment shows currently going on.I think a little more faith and a little more continuity in show times and it will be back to its best.

I think NBC is clever enough to realize that the only reason Chuck didn't win in the ratings department has to do with House as its new competition, and not with the show's popularity.
No show is nearly as entertaining to me as Chuck is now, and it would be a shame for it to get canceled due to Hugh Laurie. GGGGGRRRR! And that episode was brilliant, as well.
I think NBC will keep Chuck on for another season, at least. Canceling it probably isn't worth the grief they'd get inflicted on themselves.

Yeah chuck is getting good. I remember when Jake 2.0 finally got good and he was threatening the government bad guys that he would bring them all down. Big dramatic moment.....Canceled.....MOTHRAFRAKKER!
