Ratings: Chuck Spies All-Time Low, LOLA Drops

Well Chuck a duck – NBC’s spy dramedy returned to action this Monday with barely 4 million total viewers and dropped 13 percent to a new all-time low demo rating of 1.3. Your mission moving forward, series boss Josh Schwartz saysvia Twitter: “[There are] 4 more episodes left. You all watch ’em = good things happen. You don’t and… Well, you all will.”

The night’s other headline belongs to NBC’s Law & Order: LA, which returned revamped and with a pair of new episodes. The double bill averaged 6 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, improving upon The Event‘s most recent performance during the 9 o’clock hour but falling shy of Harry’s Law‘s typical viewership come 10 pm (the time slot LOLA will call home starting next Monday).

LOLA was down some 30 percent from its original incarnation’s final Wednesday airing, in December.

Elsewhere this Monday:

Dancing With the Stars Recap: A History of Violins

9/8c | Fox’s The Chicago Code held steady with 6 million viewers and a 1.8 rating, besting LOLA on both counts and placing third behind DWTS and CBS’ sitcombo of a fresh Mike & Molly (7.9 mil/a series-low 2.5)/Two and a Half Men repeat (7.3 mil/2.0).

Castle Scoop: The Grim Reaper Is Paying a Visit – But to Whom?

10/9c | Castle dominated the hour with 12.65 million viewers and a 3.1 rating, gaining 7 percent from last week’s NCAA basketball-impaired outing. With 9.1 million viewers and a series-low 2.4 rating, Hawaii Five-0 was down 7 and 17 percent, respectively.

    This just make me sad, i will never understand why people don’t watch this amazing show

  2. me says:

    It was a Chuck-Chicago Code-Castle-Being Human night. Almost every NBC show is a throw away of catch online/DVR/later in week when repeated. LO:LA revamped looks promising so now it needs a night and that doesn’t change for at least 4 straight weeks!

    I hope FOX keeps Chicago Code. Great ep last night!

    Now tonight there is nothing on until Glee returns so I can catch up from last night and maybe do Body of Proof, but i really don’t like it.

    I’ll bet NBC is really sorry they cancelled the original L&O. I know I’m sorry that they did. I did’t like LOLA before, and the new episodes weren’t really any better. I did like seeing Connie, but she was better with Cutter!

  4. MyrnaLebron says:

    I was watching Chuck. I love that show. I think it is getting better and better. I want Chuck to survive cancellation it needs more advertisement. They need to let everyone know when it’s on. I also watched Hawaii 5 O which is great and I recorded Castle. The shows are good shows who shouldn’t have to worry about ratings because they have lots of fans,that don’t have neilson ratings on their t.v’s.

    This really isn’t good news for us Chuck fans… I mean it doesn’t really change the love we have for the show cause, and I certain I speak for all chucksters, we still think it’s the best show ever..but better ratings would allow us fan to get a season 5 for the show..I’m still hopefull though..
    Please NBC renew Chuck..it’s the best show you have!!

  6. chuck says:

    an ”all chuck/volkoff” episode (no buy-more characters?) makes the show dull, it needs the whole package, and not JUST THE SERIOUS SPY PARTS, BUT THE comedy characters,… i love the show ‘AS IS’ but not much interested in the show without the ‘comedy’ talent..

  7. Aiden says:

    Even though it seems like dipping ratings across the board, I feel worst for Chuck. The show’s struggling ratings-wise as it is, and this is the most crucial moment that may determine its fate for the next TV season. If only it were relying on quality alone, Chuck wouldn’t have been on the bubble all four years. Sigh..I hope NBC gives it a chance.

  8. best chuck fan says:

    Omg, chuck is the best show on air right now, and this was an amazing episode and please give uss a new season of chuck!

  9. JS says:

    Ratings are always announced by the following morning. Are online views ever taken into account? What I have heard about Neilsen ratings seems problematic to me and not indicative of the actual numbers of viewers.

  10. Pam says:

    I stopped watching Chuck this season. The show I fell in love with was about a computer nerd who is out of his element as he inherited spy stuff. Chuck is no longer that show, imo.

  11. Sophie Catherine says:

    Why they keep cancelling good show?

  12. Kate says:

    I too thought it was a rerun, and I’ve seen all the reruns MANY times each. Such an entertaining show. I hope things improve these last four weeks so they renew. I looked up the schedule for the last four episodes to make sure I don’t miss any of these. I’d love even a short season next year, at least to wrap up the cliffhanger storyline!

  13. Krissi G says:

    When will NBC get it through their thick ass skulls to move Chuck to Tuesday, or some other night where it won’t have to go up against two major powerhouses (House and DTWS)? Frankly there is pretty much nothing really on Tuesdays or Wednesdays this season. Why not do a day/time switch? It would do a lot better without NBC suffocating a Nerd-tastic show!!!!
