Abject begging isn't pretty, but "Chuck" deserves it. The show is in danger of cancellation, but this delightful spy dramedy should absolutely get a third season.

Yes, I agree - Chuck is a great show. I hope it gets renewed.

I only just started watching this show this season and I am very pleasantly surprised. I have really enjoyed it and I hope that it gets renewed. It's great entertainment and would be a real shame to see it cancelled.

Does anyone thing that a campaign of letters (physical ones, no less) will have any impact at all? That's like saying a staged protest has a political impact. It's a TV show! A mediocre one at that! Move on, already.

Goodbye Chuck. It's about time this drivel was taken off the air.

Chuck is the most consistently entertaining show on television. It has action, comedy, drama, romance. The cast is talented. The soundtrack is great.

I agree that it is fun escapism that is needed right now. I wish more people watched it.

"Show me this 'real' turkey..."

SAVE CHUCK!! Best show, really. I have to watch it twice each week to catch all the nerdiness. LadyGaGa "lovegame" (2 weeks ago)...perfect.

I'll be forwarding to 39 of my friends! Thanks Watcher :)

Friday Night Lights vs Chuck?

C'mon its a no brainer. Chuck is much better.
Sorry but 'yet another teen drama' vs a 'Nerd adventure drama'?

Chuck is definitely unique and in this day and age of 'reality melodrama' on each channel, it stands out.

If they can keep the plot lines moving, then they should stay.

I'm not a fan of either show, but saying FNL is another teen drama is pretty dumb. I've seen both shows a couple of times, but neither one caught my interest. Although I will say that FNL seemed like a better show. If you read the reviews, most critics will say that FNL is one of the best shows on TV. I saw the Chuck's pilot episode and a couple of other episodes here and there, but it seemed pretty dull and bland to me.

Personally I am done with TV. Every time I decide to invest my time in a show it ends up getting canceled because of some arcane system that the TV stations still use to judge the popularity of a show. I am done wasting my time on TV unless they start to promise some kind of closure when they cancel a show that has made it more than one season!!!!!

Forget Chuck himself and the rest of the guys. Just give me a show of Sarah/Yvonne. And have Jill do a few guest appearances.

It jumped the shark when they worked Scott Bakula and Chevy Chase in to the story.

Thank you for this. I live in a different country but I've been watching Chuck weekly. It took me just one episode to like it. I hope they renew Chuck. There are still a lot of things which are needed to be done at Buymoria!

Save Chuck!

Thanks for the article and the addresses, Maureen. In all of my 34 years, this is the first time I've written letters in support of a series. *fingers crossed*

Chuck is awesome. It's the only thing on NBC worth watching, so if it goes, I go!
