Chuck In January, Lost In February


Big news in sci-fi-ish TV for 2010: ABC's Lost kicks off its final season on Tuesday, Feb. 2 (note new night), and near-canceled Chuck returns to NBC in January--two months earlier than previously scheduled. Unfortunately, it won't be replacing Heroes. ---

The third season of Chuck, about a big-box electronics store drone who turns spy after inadvertently getting a few gigs of government secrets embedded in his head, begins with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, Jan. 10 before settling into its old home on Monday, Jan. 11 (prior to, blech, Heroes). Also, Season 2 DVD set arrives in January--it's raining Chuck.

One of the caveats for NBC granting Chuck another season after declining ratings was to slash the budget. So, it looks like Chuck (Zachary Levi) now goes to Great Clips for haircuts, and supporting player Anna Wu (Julia Ling) is nowhere to be found in NBC's press materials. But, have no fear: Captain Awesome will be back!

The preview reel for Season 3. Be sure and watch harder this year, Chuckheads.
