Although last night’s episode of Chuck was filled with gasp-worthy (I just made that up!) stuff and Star Wars theme music, Chuck vs. the Last Details failed to pull in the numbers we hope for from week to week. With a 7% drop from last week to 1.3 in the demo, and the same happening to all shows across the board in this time slot, it certainly appears as if no one is watching television on Monday nights. Or maybe they were watching the NBA playoffs? There are still many who are cleaning up after dealing with killer tornadoes and floods as well. These could all be contributing factors.
In any case, this episode tied the series low but at least it didn’t fall below that.
Updated 4:20PM: TVBTN reports that the final numbers for Chuck and a lot of other shows adjusted up; Chuck now ranks at a 1.4 in the demo with 4.1 million viewers. None of the other NBC shows adjusted up, meaning Chuck won the night by two-tenths of a point in the demo.
