NBC Orders Full Season for CHASE and Four More Scripts for UNDERCOVERS

Yesterday we found out that NBC had given full season orders to The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Outsourced and the fourth season of Chuck. Now one more rookie series is joining the club as NBC announced via press release that Chase (a series that I wasn’t too fond of) has been picked up for a full season. Aside from the fact that all of NBC’s new shows haven’t been getting stellar ratings, I honestly couldn’t care less about an entire season order for any of them.

Meanwhile, the network is a little more apprehensive about one of their other underwhelming series as Deadline reports the network has only ordered four more scripts of J.J. Abrams romantic comedy spy series Undercovers. At this point, I’ve given up on every single one of NBC’s new series with the exception of The Event, but I have a feeling that after I watch last night’s episode, I won’t be tuning in next week. I wouldn’t be surprised if all these series miss out on a second season. Anyone out there really digging Chase or Undercovers?

    I completely agree with you. All of NBC’s new shows have been extremely underwelming. I gave up on the event after last week’s episode and I couldn’t even get through the pilot of undercovers. Big letdown from Abrams. Chase looks soo lame. No way Chase or Undercovers makes it to season two. The Event will last until people realize it will never be Lost.

    I thought Chase would be decent cause I love fugitive tracking movies/shows but haven’t watched a one. I do like Undercovers and The Event but they are not tops on my list. The freshman shows I enjoy are Blue Bloods, 5-0, and Whole Truth.

    Digging the 24 episode season of Chuck!

    Just saw the last episode of Undercovers and was thinking about how underwhelming the whole thing is. SO cliche and predictable, the spy stuff is OK but the whole schtick about a married couple squabbling and especially the stuff with the sister and the catering business is just painful. And so many weak side characters, the nerd sidekick is horrible, the ex boyfriend other spy keeps “surprisingly” popping up in every episode, and while Major Dad is kind of amusing, they give him a lot of really stilted dialogue. From the guy who did Alias, it’s hard to understand how this thing went so wrong. In theory, they could probably fix the problems, but I doubt that is going to happen before it gets cancelled.

    I watch The Event and Undercovers, but neither are anything special at this point. The Event is interesting only because of the is secret we no nothing about beyond that theirs nothing else. Undercovers feels as if every episode is the same with dialogue but with a different mission. At this point I’m just watching until it bores me or theirs no second season or cut mid-season.

    I find The Event’s story to be kind of interesting, but it’s trying too hard to be another Lost. Lost worked because over time you grew to truly care for the characters, whereas on The Event there are really no characters I’m invested in.
    I think the two leads on Undercovers have good chemistry together, but the show itself is pretty much the same thing every week. Hopefully when the show gets canceled they can do a movie or something together, because they work well.
    Haven’t watched any of NBC’s other shows.

    I think chuck is NBC best show and I think undercovers I good. But not amazing like Hawaii five-0

    Undercovers has it’s good and it’s bad points. There have been 3 episodes that I feel are much better than the rest. The key there is to make it more of a drama and have it feel just a little more serialized, then I think they could be alright. I know they were trying to cater to a simpler audience as sadly FRINGE isn’t do too well either, but this is just too simple and often cheezy dialogue that needs to go and fast.
