Love Versus Career: NBC Unveils New "Chuck" Promo

Will it be passion or professionalism?

With just a few weeks to go before the Season Three premiere of Chuck, NBC has unveiled a new promo for the action-comedy that plays up the romance between Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) and Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) as well as the push-and-pull between duty and love.

Spoiler-phobes might want to look away as there are some rather intriguing reveals contained in the below Chuck promo, released today, that might point to some action for these spies.



Will these two finally get together this season? Who can say, though you can read my advance review of the first five episodes of Season Three of Chuck to glean any clues I may have left there about whether this star-crossed couple finally manages to put aside their professional responsibilities for some much deserved romance...

Season Three of Chuck launches January 10th at 9 pm ET/PT with a two-hour premiere before moving to its regular timeslot Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on January 11th.

I have seen the first five and that promo is the worst idea NBC ever had. At least 18% of the fan base is going to be really upset when they see where this goes. Why even tease those scenes? There is no grand benefit.

Anonymous,

Having seen the first five episodes (and reviewed them last week), I was surprised as well that NBC would tease it. But it's all about tune-in. And if more people watch the first few episodes because of it, that's got to be a good thing. Remember, those launch numbers have got to be BIG.

Well I don't know what goes down but knowing that the Will They Won't They is still going strong I bet we can determine what path he chose.

I would have prefered to see it on context because he is definately creating false hope.

I sure hope the writers understand that its NOT A FACT that a show jumps the shark when the two leads get together - its bad writing which can lead to its downfall - sometimes.

In other words, they better STOP splitting those two up all the time.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
