Although it might contain spoilers, Boston.com had a good review of the show.

According to my TiVo, Zachary Levi will be on both the Today show and The View tomorrow morning. (9/24)

EW gives it a B+. One thing they mention is that Zachary's adorable grin "makes you want to give him all your pudding, immediately". Which is funny, because Levi's character in Less Than Perfect had one of the creepiest, toothtastic grins I'd ever seen :D

Okay, a B+ isn't bad at all, but I do think that's underrated. I'm also surprised that they gave Journeyman an A. I literally don't know one person that was/is planning to watch that show. Granted, I'm sure people will give it a chance, because its after Heroes, but I don't know anyone that's excited for it. I'd have given Chuck an A-, at the least.

Just downloaded it on iTunes! The sales from Amazon unBox must have been disappointing, which is probably why NBC saw the light. It would be stupid to offer it online, but not in a format most people are willing to buy. This way people can watch the episodes on their iTunes or iPhones if they want, which is what I do if I'm waiting around somewhere for a while, like the airport and I don't want to lug out my laptop.

Whoa, please tell me that NBC has just completely changed their mind without warning. I want all my NBC shows on iTunes this year. That would be awesome.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did, but it may take until the end of the day or tomorrow to happen. I just checked on Heroes and I only see S1 there right now. Journey Man is also on iTunes, so I don't know if they're just trying the new shows there to see how it compares to Amazon unBox or what...

I read that you could get a season pass for 13 episodes of both Journeyman and Chuck which would take you till December which is when NBC's deal ends. So I wouldn't take this as a sign of a NBC change of heart. Those are the only two that they announced. (I Think) I wish I could remember where I read that today.

I don't think that guarantees we'll get Chuck on iTunes, after NBC's contract expires though, right? Regardless of production company, Chuck, Journeyman and Heroes are all listed under 'NBC' in iTunes...

From USAToday:

Chuck's Levi was "honored and very excited," to make Us Weekly's list. "Everything that's happened so far has been a surprise and I hope the snowball effect keeps coming. We're just going to keep hammering away and hope the viewership keeps growing. The response has been very positive and the preview we showed at the end of the premiere will bring in a lot of new viewers, I think." Levi, who gives his status as "single," was hoping to meet Heroes' Ali Larter.

Ive always wondered... how is it that an interview is "exclusive" if he's giving other interviews all over the place?

Funny piece on Leno tonight where Zach Levi went around to people's apartments to get them to watch Chuck. At one point a girl had her email opened and he pointed to an ad for Chuck on the side of the screen. I've seen so many Chuck ads at this point that it probably wouldn't have fazed me too much if he had burst into my apartment.

On the plus side he said he was a fan of the Wii when he saw some people playing it - so maybe Chuck's gamer persona isn't all acting.

Here is the Leno skit. Zachary Levi is awesome (that'll never get old). Funny, too. What was up with the girl who got creeped out by Levi? Not cool. I would have been over the moon.

Thanks so much for that link! I missed the airing but I should've known the TWOPers would come through.

"Masi Oka never had to do this!" - love it!


What was up with the girl who got creeped out by Levi?


Ok, seriously, if ZL showed up at my door he would not creep me out. And I'll keep the rest of my thoughts to myself....

The blurb that goes with the photos might contain slight spoilers.

Cast interview on Good Day LA

Why are they in a hospital? And, more importantly, what happened to Sarah's hair?

That's a wig. And if it’s not, then whoever did that to her should be shot. Since Casey was in scrubs and Sarah was in a wig, they’re probably there undercover -- which could produce comic complications if they run into Ellie and Captain Awesome on the job.

Entertainment Weekly is doing a mini recap of Chuck each week I guess. Although it's not so much of a recap as complaining.

It's a wig. Her hair is in clumps, and it isn't moving right.

Oh my GOD, that cast is adorable. When the people asked about sexual tension with Chuck, every cast member just started caressing ZL and pulling him onto the bed. <3

I think that should be in media, though...there aren't really any spoilers in it anymore.

Entertainment Weekly are IDIOTS then. That "recap" is at a level of nitpicking that is outright bizarre, not to mention unfair.

Yeah I know. My favorite part is when the writer basically says "Enough with Chuck dealing with this amazing thing that has happened to him, he should be out saving the world already!" Geez, it's only the second episode.

"Chuck" used as an example of how network shows need broader appeal than basic cable shows to be considered successful: Basic Cable Turns the Tables. It's contrasted with "Burn Notice," which is on USA.
