NBC Wants More ‘Chuck’ But No More ‘Trauma’

NUP_111042_1145Medical drama Trauma has been on life support for quite some time, and although it had a glimpse of hope last week as its ratings improved, it looks like the show has flat lined. According to Hollywood Reporter, NBC will not be picking up the show after its 13-episode order.

Good news for NBC’s Chuck, as the show has been picked up for six more episodes. Chuck wasn’t slated to come back until after the Winter Olympics, but now its 19-episode run is rumored to start in January. This news should help patch things up between NBC and Chuck-producers Warner Bros., who recently butted heads over the cancellation of cop drama Southland.

Two other new NBC series, Community and Mercy, have been picked up for full seasons, along with Parks and Recreation, which is in its second season.
