Network notes

News and notes from the world of network TV:

– NBC has picked up the back nine episodes of Chuck (good move!) and Life, ensuring them with a full season each, assuming the writers’ strike ends soon.

– Twiggy is out and Paula Porikzova is in as one of the judges when America’s Next Top Model returns to the air late this winter with cycle 10, which also sends the show back to New York. Twiggy really never fit in among the program’s judges and had a hard time filling Janice Dickinson’s shoes (or heels) as her replacement. Dickinson abruptly left Top Model after cycle 5.
