The Nielsen ratings can mean life or death for TV shows but, there’s no need to worry about Chicago Med being cancelled by NBC anytime soon. This Wednesday night series has already been renewed for seasons seven and eight, through 2022-23. Will the executives end up regretting the early renewals? Stay tuned.
Chicago Med stars Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Torrey DeVitto, Brian Tee, Marlyne Barrett, Dominic Rains, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Oliver Platt. The story follows the doctors, nurses, and staff of the city’s state of the art trauma center, Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, through the chaos of their day-to-day lives. As a team, they confront the Windy City’s most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion, and cutting-edge medicine. The drama series also features crossovers with Chicago Fire and Chicago PD.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
