    XSSIV, who do u work for? I dont wanna have to do the research as to which "Chuck" employee has ties to USA network, so please just let us all now why u promote unquestionably garbage television.

      Other than Thursday's line-up, nothing here I'd watch.

        Wow, so there still going with this constant Jay leno sh*t. Just once or at least twice a week. Why every freaking weekday? Since Comcast now owns NBC i expect them to take some kind of action.

          Good to see Chuck back, but that's the only thing in this lineup I'll watch.

          USA has the MUCH better programming these days.
