Last night was a great deal of fun and success for Chuck Me Mondays. We watched three episodes and trended the hashtag #FreeChuck several times during the process. In all, we had nearly 4,000 tweets during those three hours and had writer Ali Adler tweeting along with us and engaging the fans in her special way (thank you, Ali!).
Our plans for next week, as NBC and WB still work to figure out this season 2 online issue, is to take one more week of Chuck Me Mondays fun. Since September 7th is a holiday in the US, we will use that day to spend more time with CHUCK for those who want to join in together. It will be a marathon of five episodes that may include episodes from season 1 and season 2. A poll is going up where fans should vote on their five favorite second half of season 2 episodes. These episodes are available on NBC.com right now for free viewing.
Now, as for WE HEART CHUCK, this incredible charity drive that raised over $17,000 in 17-days in May, for the American Heart Association, is being kicked off yet again. The creators of the campaign have some great ideas and are looking to get as many people involved as possible, this time for the long run. Show everyone how much you value the show and those involved while saving lives. I did an interview with some of the members of the effort and it is posted in the right side panel or you can follow this link to Chuck You Tuesday - The Podcast.
