Hi, Chuck. Bye, Charlie.

The good news: NBC has apparently picked up one of my two favorite shows, Chuck, for 13 episodes next season.

The bad news: NBC has canceled one of my two favorite shows, Life, for good. Never underestimate the power of a TV executive to scrap a smartly written and compelling show in favor of the dreck and dross that's increasingly passing for prime time television. More reality shows or Jay Leno, anyone?

Perhaps USA with it's "Characters Wanted" tagline will pick up the story of Charlie Crews and the rest of the Life cast. One can only hope.
