In another example of the new age of DVRs and online viewing, where pure ratings no longer determine what stays on the air, "Chuck" has gotten a full-season pick-up from NBC on Tuesday.
It's been a difficult road from the beginning for the show with a hard-core fan following. It's never had a full-season renewal, and fans have put forth their best effort over the years on social media to keep it going. (When asked how much Facebook, Twitter and the like had to do with the show's success, star Zachary Levi told CNN, "The Internet rules the world now, so I think it has everything to do with it.")
In yesterday's announcement, NBC pointed to the fact that it was "heavily time-shifted," saying that 29 percent of its viewership came from DVR recordings watched on the same day it first aired.
According to EW.com, the show will also get 24 episodes this season, the most it's ever had.
