With American Gladiators occupying Chuck's old time slot, NBC didn't know what to do with the last two new episodes of the freshman series. According to Variety, they will now be turned into a mini-event.
The last two episodes of Chuck produced before the writers' strike will be sandwiched around The Celebrity Apprentice on Thursday January 24th at 8:00 and 10:00 pm. NBC hopes that this will give the show a new audience that has yet to check out the popular series.
Chuck was awarded a full season, but those remaining episodes won't be produced until after the writers' strike is over.
