Chicago Pd: Season Two Ratings

25 September 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, based on the second season success of Chicago Fire, NBC ordered a spin-off, Chicago Pd. It ended up being the network's fifth-highest rated scripted series of the season. Will the ratings rise or fall in season two? Cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.

Chicago Pd follows the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's District 21 who purse the perpetrators of major street crimes. The series features the talents of Jason Beghe, Jon Seda, Sophia Bush, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, Laroyce Hawkins, Archie Kao, Amy Morton, Brian Geraghty, and Elias Koteas.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next »

News Nuggets: Who are the most liked TV actors working today?

17 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Television fans have spoken, and the most popular actor on the small screen is something of a surprise: Michael Weatherly ("NCIS"). He has an impressive Q score of 34 (Q scores have long been used by marketers for advertising effect). The second highest score of 33 is held by four-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). Next in line are: Mads Mikkelsen ("Hannibal"), Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory"), Jon Seda ("Chicago Pd"), Shemar Moore ("Criminal Minds"), Eric Stonestreet ("Modern Family"), Paul Wesley ("The Vampire Diaries"), and Jason Beghe ("Chicago Pd"). The Wrap -Break- Billy Crystal reflects on last month's Emmy Awards, saying that his tribute to the late Robin Williams "was the hardest thing I've ever had to do." He discussed it with "Today" host Matt Lauer and "became understandably overwhelmed with emotion" as he recalled »

The Most and Least Liked Fall TV Actors: Jim Parsons, Eric Stonestreet to Chris Pratt, Dylan McDermott

16 September 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Forget the four Emmy Awards. Jim Parsons should put his Q Score on a mantle. The star of CBS’ hit “The Big Bang Theory” landed a huge 33 Positive Q Score per TheWrap‘s study of fall TV actors – though that impressive mark wasn't even good enough for the No. 1 slot. That nod goes to fellow CBSer Michael Weatherly of “NCIS,” who topped all comers with a whopping 34. Parsons’ colleague Kunal Nayyar was a few slots below him, earning a very strong 29. He tied there with “Chicago Pd” star Jon Seda, who were both just under titular “Hannibal” star Mads »

Chicago Pd Review: An Old-School Cop Show with the Right Balance of Action and Drama

8 January 2014 12:21 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"You tell me the truth so I can lie for you," is how Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) instructs his Chicago Intelligence Unit, proving himself to be a loyal, if unconventional leader.  Chicago Pd is a spin-off of NBC's windy city series Chicago Fire, and while there are some crossover characters and plots, the show not only stands on its own, but seems to improve upon its parent series.  Unlike Fire, Pd is not just produced by, but created by veteran TV content magician Dick Wolf, and Pd feels (in the best of ways) like those early years of Law & Order -- plus a little more melodrama, but that's not a bad change.  Hit the jump for more. Having only read up on, but not seen, Chicago Fire, I can't speak specifically to all the connections the two share, except that Pd doesn't require knowledge from its parent show to »

'Chicago P.D.' teams up with 'Svu' and 'Chicago Fire' in joining the NBC family

8 January 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

One of TV's top makers of procedural dramas is still in the game, and he's expanding his role in it again.

"Law & Order" mentor Dick Wolf went in another direction last year by introducing "Chicago Fire." He now spins that off into the police world he knows so well by also executive producing "Chicago P.D.," which NBC debuts Wednesday, Jan. 8. The two shows are linked by characters including maverick squad leader Hank Voight, still portrayed by Jason Beghe in the role he originated on "Fire."

Jon Seda ("Homicide: Life on the Street"), Jesse Lee Soffer and Laroyce Hawkins are among others carrying over their "Fire" characters to "P.D." Sophia Bush ("One Tree Hill"), Patrick John Flueger ("The 4400") and Elias Koteas also are in the ensemble cast of the filmed-on-location show, which Wolf says largely evolved from Beghe and Seda's work together on "Chicago Fire."

TV Review: Television Has Evolved Beyond NBC’s ‘Chicago Pd’

8 January 2014 9:00 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

There’s a fine line between old-fashioned and stale. Some will look at “Chicago Pd,” NBC’s spin-off of “Chicago Fire” from mega-producer Dick Wolf, and say that it’s the kind of tried-and-true cop show that they don’t really make that often any more. I would say there’s a reason they don’t make them any more.

Television Rating: 2.0/5.0

Chicago Pd” has some heartfelt, decent performances, especially at its center, but it misses the opportunity to really get to the dirt under the fingernails of the cops who try to keep our streets safe in one of the most increasingly dangerous cities in the world. The fact is that Chicago has a real crime problem and this tepid spin-off doesn’t get close to addressing it in a fashion more realistic than a daytime soap. Yes, some audiences will be drawn to this for the very melodramatic »

Guy Wilson’s “Days Of Our Lives” Debut and Stevie Nicks Joins “American Horror Story”

News

Despite a parade of offensive comments, Variety says that advertising rates on Duck Dynasty are still high and companies aren’t worried about facing a backlash for sponsoring the program. How disappointing.

In a surprise development, Fox has rescued another rejected pilot. This time its Backstrom, starring Rainn Wilson as an abrasive detective based on a book series by Leif G.W. Persson. The rest of the original cast — including Kriftoffer Polaha and Dennis Haysery — are sticking around for the Fox version, save for Mamie Gummer.

Backstrom

No, there isn’t a new Twin Peaks project in the works. I’m just glad I heard about it at the denial stage so I couldn’t get my hopes up.

TV Review: ‘Chicago Pd’

7 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dick Wolf is no stranger to taking a success — even a moderate one — and spinning it off into franchises. So “Chicago Fire,” his NBC drama, begets “Chicago Pd,” a series distinguished primarily by its solid casting and Jason Beghe’s performance as a cop who loves his city almost as much as he relishes beating information out of suspects. If some of NBC’s procedural development has felt like CBS Lite, file this one under CBS Dark — which could end up doing for the Windy City, for good or ill, what “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” did for New York.

Snarling like Batman minus the cowl at bad guys (“Stay out of my city,” he tells one whimpering low-life), Beghe’s Det. Hank Voight made his debut in “Fire” as a ruthless cop, and eventually won redemption — or at least a second chance — as the head of an intelligence unit within the Chicago Police Dept. »

'Chicago Pd': Sophia Bush protects and serves in new clip

3 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Beloved "One Tree Hill" alum Sophia Bush has graduated to the streets of Chicago. A new promo for "Chicago Pd" focuses on her character Erin Lindsay's role in the new NBC drama.

When she was cast, Erin was described as "a member of the Cpd investigative team who has an 'unexpected past.'" In this video, courtesy of PopSugar, fans can see Bush's softer side as Erin and also how she's a competent cop.

"Chicago Pd" premieres on NBC on Jan. 8 at 10 p.m. The series also stars Patrick Flueger, Jon Seda, Jesse Lee Soffer and Jason Beghe. »
