Why they moved Chicago Fire is beyond me. But what of Med?

Chris Zimmer said...

Apparently NBC wanted to keep "This is Us" and the L&O True Crime on the same night, but didn't want them pre-empted by Thursday football, so they moved them both the Tuesday and bumped Fire to Thursday. Chicago Med will be a mid-season premiere.

Draven Long said...

Well, Fire is quite risky, since it's been Tuesday for four entire seasons, and Med angers me. We will get 15 episodes at best, most likely. Couldn't they have placed True Crime where Chicago Justice was or even put Med in that slot?
