Watercooler: Premiere Week Survival Guide, Part 1

Chuck

Don't know about you, folks, but our DVRs earned their pay last night!

With the 2010 fall TV season finally in full swing, Mondays suddenly became about a lot more than Bachelor Pads and Real Housewives. 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. Fox dropped its soapy new Lone Star right after the season premiere of House (loved one, liked another). CBS brought back ... read more

Backstage at Opening Night of Dancing With the Stars

Dancing with the Stars

"I'm about to vomit," said Barbara Chase, moments before the curtain rose on Season 11 of Dancing With The Stars. 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. "She's always stayed in shape," said Chase, "but this is so hard." Is it like going from zero to 60 in terms of her physical stamina? "No, not zero. More like 35 to 60. But still..."

Chuck

Chuck takes on green, mean fighting machine Lou Ferrigno on the September 27 episode of NBC's Chuck when the former Incredible Hulk guest stars as a bodyguard named Gerard. An altercation takes place when Chuck and Sarah go to Milan, Italy, on a mission and encounter Gerard.
