It was a new-show bonanza across the dial and honestly, it was kind of impossible to keep up. NBC gave us the always-awesome Chuck, the enticing "are they aliens?" mythology of The Event and the not-so-enticing "are they kidding us with these clichés?" of Chase.

Chase, suffering from nervous tension, is the proud daughter of "America's Mom," Brady Bunch veteran Florence Henderson, who at 76 is the show's star senior citizen.
