As it enters its third season, NBC's "Chuck" is the little spy comedy that could, saved from cancellation by fan protest, Subway and the sheer force of creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak's wills. If only any episode of the actual show were as tense and intriguing as the struggle to keep it alive. I say this with love, because I like "Chuck," in no small part because it is one of a handful of shows I can watch with my children. In many ways "Chuck" is precisely the show many Americans say they want.

We now know the show will return Jan. 10, but at the time Levi wasn't sure. "My agent called and said, ' "Alvin and the Chipmunks 2." What do you think?' I said, 'Let's go!
