NBC ordered six more episodes of "Chuck". Bringing the current total for this season to a very reasonable nineteen! This is looking good for a possible third season premiere in Jan or Feb.

Yay!

Chucking hell!

Sorry.
And it does look like it will be replacing Trauma.
The article actually says that a source indicates they're "close to," and I personally don't buy it. A 13 episode commitment was borderline charity when they committed at the end of last season. Now we're to believe they decided to go for another 6 on top of that before they've even shown any of those?

It's certainly possible that everything else is so completely in the toilet that they need more hours but this doesn't add up.
That makes me SO happy!! =D
I know my parents love the show. I still haven't seen it (apart from one episode in the middle of the first season they showed me, which didn't really do anything for me). But I hear so many good things (including things from them) that I'll probably go and watch it on dvd at some point. So that's great news that the show is getting more episodes!

(Wouldn't it be amazing if Dollhouse got 6 more episodes this season?)
Chuckaroo Banzai !

(not sorry but probably should be ;)

Hope this is true because for me 'Chuck' is one of the nicest, most warm-hearted show on TV and it deserves to continue.
I want Adam back on my TV, damnit!
:)

Pretty much. Outside of a couple shows, NBC can barely hit 6 million these days, which is about what Chuck was doing.

Actually this does add up. Angela Bromstad has said more than once that they are very happy with the creative direction of the show, and clearly they are pleased enough with the quality of what's been shot that they want to do more of them - especially if the show is going to come on a possible six weeks earlier than planned.

This hardly unpresidented - and it's nice to see NBC doing a solid for critically acclaimed, if not highly rated, television shows. Some shows need more fostering. Cases in point:

M*A*S*H*'s 1st season, they ranked #46 out of 64 primetime shows.
Cheers was #74 out of... 74 shows! I kid you not.
Seinfeld didn't even crack the top 30 until it's fourth season.

Food for thought.

Chucking awesome!
Woohoo now this is great news Cheers to NBC 4 making this move
It may also have something to do with the fact that Chuck is now airing earlier than expected, and they were happy to let it run until the planned date by adding the extra ep order
Is that confirmed (and is there a date) ? Last I heard they were considering bringing it back before March because they had holes in their schedule but it wasn't definite.
Great news! Looking forward to more Chuck and Casey.
Since the end of season 2, Chuck for me, has gone from a great laugh to something I genuinely miss.
This is all going in the right direction.
CHUCK-FU!!!
Well, lets hope those are the first of many
Well thank Chuck for that.

Apparently it's because they decided to axe Trauma. That necessitated the increase of Chuck's order.
*squeeeeeee* Chuck is one of the best shows on tv at the moment so am very excited to hear this!

season 2 ended so hysterically i can't wait to see what becomes of Charles Carmicha.. Chuck Bartowski!

Fingers and toes crossed for a full season!!
