While I already watched the season premiere this past weekend, my recommendation for tonight is NBC’s “Chuck”. The show is a fun ride and has one of the best ensemble casts on television (it is also the only cast with Adam Baldwin, just saying). Sadly, I’m afraid that the show is going to get lost in its crowded time slot, facing off against “Monday Night Football”, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “Gossip Girl” and CBS’ comedy block of “The Big Bang Theory” and “How I Met your Mother”. “Monday Night Football” has already put the pressure on “Terminator”, and I’d hate to see the same thing happen to “Chuck”.
Tonight’s episode of “Chuck” picks up from the end of last season, and answers the question of what will happen to Chuck when the government rebuilds the Intersect and has no more use for him. Will John Casey (Baldwin) be able pull the trigger and kill Chuck? If he does, they will have to change the name of the show… which airs at 8pm on NBC.
