  2. Jenny says:

    It is the series finale of Jericho.. šŸ™ They cancelled it late last week.

    The site I checked said the season finale of Make Me… is next week, not this week. On the 3rd or something, not the 27th šŸ™‚

    Hey Jenny,
    Do you know if “Chuck” is coming back anytime soon?!
    And is there going to be a 2nd season in september?

    Thanks šŸ™‚

  4. Jenny says:

    Hi Haley,

    According to Ausiello on TVGuide.com, Chuck won’t be back until Fall. It’s already been renewed for a 2nd season, I believe. šŸ™‚

  5. szucsitg says:

    jenny: chuck is back for 2nd season.
    and i know, that jericho has cancelled by cbs, but maybe, MAYBE sci fi channel or the cw will bought the rights…

  6. Jenny says:

    Yeah, maybe szucsitg, but I doubt it. šŸ™
