Chuck is one of the few clever, refreshing, youth oriented series that has a little bit of everything for the viewing masses. Witty dialogue for the intelligentsia, moments of action for the testosterone crowd, allusions to relevant topics for the informed, enough female and male eye candy, hip music a la Grey's Anatomy, and is unique enough with nothing like it in the current TV landscape. NBC would be foolish to let this gem slip away.

Definitely a must see on Sunday evenings. Not as predictable and formulaic as other Bruckheimer ventures. Great retro music and an engaging cast. Don't let it slip away CBS!

Chuck, Medium, Heroes, 24 and Bones are my favorite shows on network TV. I have some faves on HBO and Showtime also. I can't imagine why Chuck would be endangered. It is one of the most fun shows to watch.

ALL the ABC comedies and most of NBC's lineup need to go along with Old Christin at CBS. The CW is just hopeless and for FO, just a few shows here and there but ION and MY Network TV need some sprucing up bigtime. Surprised Private Practice got renewed though.

I only watch 4 or 5 programs per week and this is one of them. I will always DVR it if I'm away. I love this show, but I'm afraid it might be going away. I wish another network would pick it up and promote it more than the CW does.

Sorry, I thought the posts were grouped by program. I'm talking about REAPER.

This is a great show. A lot of great guest stars. I like the two plots running at the same time with one that is very humerous and the other more dramatic. I really like the relationship between Sarah and Chuck. I certainly hope that they keep this show going because the networks do not produce a lot of quality anymore, just reality garbage. They need to make more of an investment in these shows like good, consistent time slots and several seasons to develop a large viewership.

Do not take off these programs, these are some of my favorite programs. ABC made me upset be taking away Eli Stone. Why is it when a really good show comes on, and the network aways seems to take it away. The reason why alot of shows get a low rating is when the show is in the off season, it seems like the network is always showing reruns. Which most people don't watch because they have alreadly seen that run, and then they don't end up watching the new season. Keep things fresh, not so many reruns.

I left out the shows I wanted to stay, Chuck, Life, Medium, but most of the others they can go. I do like watching Cold Case, and Without a Trace. Plus the new show, The Unusual, is also a keeper.

All the rest: crud.(Reaper just barely watch-able lately).

Chuck should be renewed but recent story arc is starting feel like a finale of the series.

Castle, probably should be renewed, but because of ABC's stupidity in scheduling shows, I did not allow myself to get invested into it.

Terminator is a good show, but always a bad sign when it is banished on Fridays. If Fox is looking to cut costs, TSC will be gone due to production cost.

Dollhouse, I never really got into, it's a goner.

Lie To Me should get renewed. I think it would be better if it were scheduled after BONES or even House.

Samantha Who? was a good show with good ratings but ABC was stupid and put it on another night. I mean, apparently the ratings weren't good enough to warrant a stay on Mondays. Look what they did to LOM.

Parks & Recreation. It may get renewed. I like Amy Poehler, she has done good on the show but the rest of the cast terrible. I can't get invested in it.

I would love Life to get another season. But who knows.

Out of all of them Chuck is a very good show. It's my choice on Monday nights.

Only 4 of the bubble shows would I be urging their renewal: Life, Without a Trace, Chuck, The Unit. And pretty much in that order. i watch every week, or DVR to watch. They are quality, good writing, good characters and stories and that is what i like in a show.

I like "Chuck" and make sure to see it online if I miss it on Monday. "Life" is another I don't miss, either on Wednesday or online. I like the "Dollhouse" because it is just enough Sci-Fi and hasn't crossed the line into making the characters solely escorts.

Dump "Earl" (worn out), "Worst Week" (worst show, maybe ever) and "the Unit" (also worn out).

I enjoy Chuck. It's lighthearted and entertaining. We have far too much violence, hate, gore and generally degrading stuff on the TV now. I can't for the life of me see how "Family Guy" and "The Simpsons" ever got on TV never mind how they have stayed there! Those shows are guide books for losers. At least Chuck has some funny and entertaining moments. O.K. it's not the stuff that win awards but it is a stress reliever. Keep Chuck!
