'Chuck' May Get Renewed After All, Claims Source

ChuckTo quote Professor Farnsworth, "Good news, everyone!" It's looking likely that 'Chuck' will be getting another season on NBC, according to the Ausiello Files, although no official word has been sent to the press as of yet.

This is comforting news, as ratings for its current season haven't been stellar, despite the excellent pseudo-season finale, which was written before its six-episode extension was commissioned. Our own Joel Keller has an excellent interview here on TV Squad with 'Chuck' co-creator Chris Fedak about "Season 3.2."

While the previous episode had (spoiler alert!) Chuck and Sarah hooking up at the end, it does make one wonder where the series could go from that point onward. After all, that seemed to be the point of the series since the first episode. The good news is that we're going to find out when the first of six new episodes begin airing on Monday.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Will Find New York Gold Diggers in its Fourth Season

Patty Stranger of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'There's a bit of a love-hate relationship with 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' in my house. I watch because its fun to see people who have it going on financially fumble around in their attempts at finding love. It's also fun to see matchmaker Patty Stanger (who TMZ once very accurately called a "Muppet-faced yenta") scream at her peons, the millionaires who seek her help, the men and women she recruits to date them, and just about anyone who comes into her orbit.

But what always nagged me about the show is that she's essentially setting her clients up with gold diggers. Bravo has renewed the show for a fourth season, where we'll see Stranger expanding her business into New York. Which should be fun, since the Big Apple has a higher class of social strivers than the aspiring-actor/actress-slash-bartender types Patty's been finding in L.A.

ABC Family Heading Back to College for a Fourth Season of 'Greek'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 22nd 2010 9:00AM
Greek castIt looks like ABC Family is heading for that awkward phase of high school and college-based dramas with 'Greek,' according to The Hollywood Reporter: the fourth year. This is when your freshmen are seniors and you have to figure out what to do with them, and your show, if you make it to five. Of course, you have a little bit of flexibility with college, as many students take longer than four years to graduate, and there's always post-graduate work.

But all of that's a problem for 2011. Right now, the cast and crew of 'Greek' can celebrate that with this fourth season pick-up, they will become the longest running original series currently on the air at ABC Family.

The other side of the coin is that it was only a 10-episode pick-up. The first two seasons ran 22 episodes each, while the third hit 20.

Mad Men renewed for fourth season

mad_men_group_croppedThis should come as no surprise to even the most casual of TV Squad readers. Mad Men has been picked up for a fourth season, assuring that Matthew Weiner's engrossing and demanding tale of Don Draper and the people at Sterling Cooper will be played out for at least another year.

When a show like Mad Men comes along, not unlike The Sopranos in quality and pop culture appeal, the question usually isn't whether the network will stand behind it for the duration, but whether or not the creative team envisions a long run.

The Game may go into overtime on BET

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 24th 2009 1:02PM
The GameWhen The CW dropped half-hour comedies from their schedule after this past season, it left The Game out in the cold. The show had been performing respectably for the network, so it was more a victim of changing direction than poor performance.

A little late, but maybe not too late, BET is showing interest in bringing The Game back for a fourth season. The original options on the cast of the show have lapsed, but that's not to say BET couldn't negotiate anew. There's still an audience out there for the show, and I'll bet its more hardcore base felt a little betrayed by The CW's quick dismissal.

BET already airs repeats of both The Game and its parent series Girlfriends, so a continuation there fits well. The network hasn't had much luck in establishing a successful original comedy, so why not take a stab with one that's already established? From there, it'd be easy to grow into wholly unique properties.

Syfy is booking a trip back to Eureka for a fourth season

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 25th 2009 3:30AM
Eureka renewed for fourth seasonDespite a lengthy hiatus in the middle of its third season due to that pesky WGA Strike, and a shift to Friday nights, it was reported at Comic-Con that Syfy has renewed Eureka for a fourth season. And not one of those crappy 12- or 13-episode seasons we usually get on cable. This is a full 22 episodes, for which I say ... well, that would be a bit obvious, wouldn't it?

The good news is that the absence didn't hurt the show at all. It's just as compelling as it ever was. And fun. By fun, of course, I mean for us. Poor Sheriff Carter seems on the verge of a nervous breakdown half the time. Between negotiating a teenage daughter and the geniuses and their dangerously inventive concoctions, it's a wonder Eureka hasn't been blown off the map. Maybe for the series finale.

Even better, if you've yet to add it to your weekly list of stops, you can catch the latest four episodes of Eureka streaming on Hulu, along with tons of other fun clips.

'Til Death gets revived for another season

Til Death has been picked up for a full fourth seasonHuh. That's the only thing I can say about the recent announcement that 'Til Death will be returning to the FOX lineup next year with a full season order. Well, I could probably add in a 'Hmm' or an 'Eh?' or even a 'Whaaaaa?', but they would all convey the same emotions.

I mean, who would have thought that the network had so much confidence in the show after it placed it on "hiatus" back in October (it still has 15 episodes left in its compliment)? It's not like the network had anything of importance to fill the time slot other than repeats of House or Fringe. Maybe the network felt bad that 'Til Death is, as of this moment, the only live-action, studio audience sitcom remaining on the network. Or, maybe they have some bigger ideas in the works.
