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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

Televisionary

Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
