Want to Save Chuck? Rename It!

"CHUCK" Sucks!

Our friend until the end on Twitter, HeatherG71 launched a little game based on the idea that CHUCK would improve its ratings by changing its name (I instigated this so send me the hate mail if you are somehow offended by the notion that CHUCK is a terrible name for a show).

So, jump on Twitter and participate or post your ideas here in the comment section.  The hashtag for this happy little Twitter game is #RenameChuck.


  1. Now I feel like I have arrived. You're the best Magnus!

  5. I almost thought this was serious. Glad to see it's just a game.

    If we really were to get to the point where we needed a formulaic, copycat show name to survive, just forget it, and let the show die with dignity.

  8. You got to keep the same name man, I love this show and cast, I think platonically they all love each other the cast, zach loves everyone, yvonne and the rest love each other. The only one that I do not know about is zac and josh, man they are funny together and have a real real life bromance going on. I saw josh's comic con 2009 interview where he said that when him and zac hardly worked together zac would come to him when they stopped shooting and say I miss you my little buddy, zach and josh shippers there should be some out there because there is a real love brewing, lol. But seriously keep it at chuck.
