'Chuck' Scores Huge Ratings, New Episode Tonight!

Chuck Bartowski is back in action, and nearly 8 million people saw it happen!

Chuck came back to NBC last night and brought a whopping 7.7 million viewers in for the network!

The two-hour episode brought in the show’s biggest numbers since the post-Super Bowl 3-D special episode, which aired in early 2009, THR reports.

Ratings were up 21% compared to last season’s average viewership. Huge for Zachary Levi!!

Chuck returns to its normal date and time TONIGHT at 8/7c on NBC – don’t miss it!!

    8 million is not huge.

  • Joy

    Ohmigosh that’s AWESOME! Thanks Jared for the ratings update and for reminding people to tune it again tonight for another new episode!

    Seriously, if any show deserves an ratings increase and renewal (hint, hint NBC) it’s Chuck!

    I was wondering though if you could possibly use an updated picture of Zac and Yvonne. Possibly one with a clean shaven Zac? I think he looks hotter without the scruff (à la his appearance on Letterman) lol!

    I love Chuck, but I’d hardly call under 8 million WHOPPING !!

    Loads of shows get much higher ratings than that, Desperate Housewives, Greys, Private Practice, Glee etc etc etc etc

  • Dbe

    @ Tom, considering the show was barely renewed last season, hasn’t been on the air for about 8 months, got it’s best rating since the post-Super Bowl 3-D special episode, improved on it’s lead in (seriously Dateline as a lead in?!) and the cold, hard fact that NBC isn’t exactly the ratings powerhouse it once was, I’d say that’s pretty darn good!

    Thanks Jared for the rating update and yay for Chuck!

    Funny show

  • anna

    hate to break it to you but even though it did okay, FOX, ABC and NBC all beat Chuck (CBS) that night =(

  • anna

    and Samccc, Glee usually averages about 9 million per episode so it’s not really that bad compared to Chuck

  • Geri

    Take a look at the other NBC scripted shows and you will notice that 8 million is a really great number these days for NBC. No comparison to CBS where your show gets the sack for getting just 15 million viewers;) Maybe they should keep the show on Sunday night.

    Yeah!!!!!!! Chuck!!!!!! Great shows!!!! I love the new Chuck and tonight was great with Captain Awesome in the spy mix. Now all we need is for people to spread the word!!!!!

    I did not see the very beginning of the premier, but saw the rest of the first two programs they ran in a row on Sunday and the one on Monday. I am not sure I like the new direction they have taken Chuck in but will reserve judgement and keep watching. I loved the first year, got it at the local library and got to see all of the first seasons shows at once. I have been waiting for the library to get the second season. They have to wait for the third season to start before they buy the second season. I’m sure I will love the second season as much as the first. I’m sure I will still like it (the third season) . I enjoyed the first three shows but does it lose something with Chuck having this new super power download in his brain? I’m not sure yet , but up to this point have loved loved loved the show, hope I still will.
