Compared to last year’s Law & Order: SVU’s season premiere in the same timeslot, the network was down by 21% in the demo (vs a 2.4 rating) and down by 16% in viewership (vs 7.63 million). This certainly wasn’t a great start for a new series. On the positive side, almost everyone who started watching the pilot episode stuck with it until the end. That’s kinda rare these days, particularly for a 10pm show. Next week’s numbers should be very telling.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Chicago Fire TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I recorded Chicago Fire when it started. My husband and I didnt start watching until we had 6 or 7 episodes when we finally started it. We sat and watched them all one weekend. We were hooked and couldn’t wait for the next Wednesday. Absolutely love this show!! Definitely one of our top 3 shows. Please don’t cancel another great show..

I absolutely LOVE Chicago Fire and have watched since the pilot. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t cancel this show!!! I will be heartbroken! It’s such a great show and I can’t wait until Wednesday nights when it’s on. Why are networks so quick to cancel shows these days? They used to at least try it on a different night before canceling. There are far worse shows on NBC this year, such as Whitney and Guys with Kids. I tried watching both of those shows and they are just so pointless and have bad writing. Please give Chicago Fire the chance it deserves!
