    Good to hear Chuck is back. I had heard that Heroes was cancelled; something about it costing too much?

    I didn't even notice that. I was a big fan of Mercy and Trauma, which appears to be gone as well.

    Good to hear it will be back. It got off to a sluggish start its first season, but I'm glad I gave it a second chance - it got really funny this season.

    As far as Mercy, i'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. The show itself was really meh - what I'm going to miss is seeing Michelle Trachtenberg on a weekly basis...

    I'll miss Chloe as well, but I put her third on the list behind her two friends.
