‘Chuck’ maintained high standards — and a low profile
NBC series about a spy-geek maintained high standards but low ratings
It’s checkout time at the Buy More. After five seasons, several timeslot changes, two weddings, one baby, dozens of incidences of cheating death, and countless explosions the NBC spy dramedy “Chuck’’ is signing off tonight with two back-to-back episodes starting at 8. For reasons never completely clear based on its accessibility and sweet charm, “Chuck’’ was never a huge ratings hit. But we will miss the spy team, the villains, and the Buy More all the same.
