Chuck, V Dodge the Axe

Chuck has been renewed! V has been renewed!

There had been murmurs that both shows would be back next season, but nothing was official until yesterday. Both are assumed to get 13-episode orders.

Chuck will return for Season 4 after performing as NBC's steadiest Monday-night show. The ratings still aren't what they should be, but NBC saw fit to bring the show back anyway.

V had a wacky season, going on an extended break after its first four episodes and returning in the slot behind Lost. Despite a heavy promotional push, the ratings were fairly disappointing. Nevertheless, ABC renewed it, as the network continues to look for a genre show to fill the gigantic void Lost will leave.

But it wasn't all happy times. ABC has canceled FlashForward, Scrubs, and Romantically Challenged. FlashForward was one disaster after another, Scrubs shouldn't have been around this long in the first place, and Romantically Challenged never stood a chance. The fate of NBC's Heroes is still in the air.

Okay Chuck fans, we know you're happy. Let us know how happy in the comments section, below.

    What's up with all the love for Chuck? That show is average at best. I did hear the season finale was really good, but I haven't watched it. V is fairly average too, although I do watch and enjoy it. The season really did get better and better as it went along. I am genuinely surprised it wasn't cancelled, though. It's ratings weren't that great for primetime TV.

    Yay for Chuck!! The finale was super awesome, as always. So thrilled about the next season! Hopefully it'll be a 13-turned-into-19 episode season again...

    I hope chuck stays on for 10 season it's the best show on tv beside big bang theory

    YAY V too! It's getting better and better. Loving the last few episodes. Good decision choosing V over FlashForward. FlashForward could have been good. Too bad. Sometimes it just isn't meant to be. Maybe we'll see a FlashForward reboot sometime in the future.

    I thought I read another TV.com article that said Heroes was already cancelled? What's up? Oh, and, YAY CHUCK! =D

    the third one was supposed to be only a 13 only, in the beggining and it ended being with 19(i think) maybe they'll change their minds. anyway...

    Long live the geeks!!
