There’s a ton of TV news breaking today as the networks start to unveil their shows at their Upfronts presentations (and I’ll try to get as much of it up as I can), but first and foremost is what I and many have been waiting for:
But I’ll take it. My thinking is that the steps taken to change the direction of the show, namely Chuck’s new super secret agent Intersect and Chuck’s and Morgan’s departure from the Buy More, will probably mean a reduction in the cast and tighter storylines centering more on the Bartowski family nucleus. That’s not a surprise as even if Chuck weren’t having the ratings issues, the Buy More scenario couldn’t have been sustained forever. Still, I hope that Jeff, Lester ande Big Mike can make some occasional appearances.
In the meantime, kudos to NBC for doing the rare thing and listening to a minority of (albeit rabid) fans. And congrats to the Save Chuck! campaign.
