And For Those Who Like Statistics…
Sunday’s two hour premier pulled in ratings that were somewhere between great and awesome. The first hour was watched by 7.7 million viewers and got a 3.0 rating in the coveted 18-49 year old bracket (all numbers are preliminary). The second got 7.2 million and a 2.9. The network PTB stated publicly that they would be satisfied with 6 million and 2.4 (which are approximately last years average numbers), but the cognoscenti seem to think that Chuck must perform a bit better overall to earn a fourth season.
To say the least, those numbers fill the bill nicely. The proof, of course, is in the season-long pudding. Tonight’s numbers will be far more indicative of the kind of ratings Chuck can expect for the rest of the season.
I’ve put this up early, but please consider this an “open thread” for your impressions, insights, comments and qualms about tonight’s episode, Chuck vs. The Angel of Death.
– joe & the gang!
Oh – And there’s a very touching memorial, a place to pay your respects to the departed Emmett Milbarge over on the NBC Chuck Boards. “It would be unprofessional not to do so.”
