Nomination Status: More wishful thinking
In Its Favor: Somewhere wedged into a season that was more action-dramedy than action-comedy, "Chuck" uncorked "Chuck vs the Honeymooners" and "Chuck vs the Role Models," two of its funniest episodes to date. If voters can be convinced to view "Chuck" as "The Morgan Grimes Show," it was a very funny season of "Chuck."
Working Against It: Apparently in the eyes of Emmy voters, great stunts are not the same as great comedy, so it's unlikely that "Chuck" will be able to get any sort of carryover from past Emmy success. Oh well.
