If you could save only one new NBC show, which would it be?

Each of these shows seem to have their fans here and a lot of us watch all 4 shows.

But if you were in charge of renewing a show, which would it be? Base your decision on how the quality of the show has held up so far and the potential of the show for the future.

For me it's an easy choice, Journeyman. The quality has held up pretty well and the future potential for great stories is endless.

Bionic Woman has been a pretty big disappointment for me. Life has been solid and I like the actors.

That being said, I think the only show that will be saved is Chuck. It has grown on me the last couple of episodes and it doesn't require a new viewer to watch all of the previous episodes in order to know what is going on. Unfortunately the other 3 require viewing of the previous episodes in order to not be lost.

Voted for Chuck. It's never going to be the "next great drama," but I've found myself looking forward to it every Monday.

Life would be my next choice, if I could save a second show.

I watch Journeyman, but I honestly won't miss it after NBC burns up the remaining episodes (I'd be shocked if it goes back into production after the WGA strike is over).

Bionic Woman is just a mess.

I don't watch any of them so I'm not voting. I saw the first two episodes of Bionic Woman though, holy crap that was bad.

Same here. I love this show. It and CW's Reaper are 2 of my favorites this season.

Journeyman is the only one I watch so that made my choice pretty easy. I agree with MadMark that the days are numbered for this show though.

Exactly the same for me. Except the opposite.

Definitely Chuck. I don't watch any of the others anymore, but my wife and I wait for Chuck and Reaper every week

Definitely Journeyman for me. With the exception of Life, I had all of these on my season pass, and have deleted each one over the weeks except Journeyman.

The only one of these shows that I watch is Journeyman so I voted for it. Honestly, I don't know if I would be too upset if it was gone though.

I also watch all 4 of those shows. But I voted for Chuck, which is my favorite new show this season. I hope NBC will order a 2nd season even though the numbers (around 7M viewers) have been pretty mediocre at best. I like Journeyman, but I can't see them spending anymore money on it after they burn off the 13 episode order....same applies with Life.

Bionic Woman will only have 9 episodes in the can. I've been entertained by it even though the show is going though an identity crisis. Hopefully the new showrunner, Jason Cahill, will be able to turn things around before it's too late.

Exactly the same for me, but now Chuck is the only one that is above the threshold of watchability. I watched the first few episodes of Bionic Woman, but it just is too bad to continue watching.
