083 – On Ratings and S5 Renewal

With 5 weeks at a 1.7 rating, Chuck seems to have found a very consistent core audience. However, many are concerned, as shows with much higher than 1.7 have been canceled.

Is Chuck safe? Is Chuck doomed? This week we devote almost a half hour to discussing the factors that affect ratings and renewal, including some inside information that casts new light on the issue. What is syndication, and how does it factor in? Can international fans make a difference? What is the most effective use of our energies? We tackle it all.

We round out the episode with a lively discussion about the very fun “Chuck vs. the First Bank of Evil,” and of course the latest news and spoilers!
