Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Win Loss

1 hour ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Some days are harder than others.

Not that it's ever a cakewalk in the Ed. But Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 2 saw a deeper exploration of the weight that gets carried by the docs. They're all finding their own way.

Honestly, after the day Connor had, who would have blamed him for dealing with things in one of the oldest ways known to man: a good, stiff drink.  

Seeing how Chili's alcoholism played out over on Chicago Fire, let's be glad that Dr. Rhodes didn't head down that path. I could not have taken another ridiculous and over the top take on alcoholism. I mean, in theory, I think alcoholism and drug addiction can be really compelling on a medical show (or any show really), but it needs to be handled with finesse.

Not the sledgehammer that we've seen in the past on Dick Wolf shows.

TV Ratings: ‘Pitch’ Debuts Soft Against ‘Thursday Night Football’

23 September 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Broadcast’s new Thursday-night scripted series were no match for the NFL.

“Pitch” on Fox premiered to a soft 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.3 million total viewers at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. “Notorious,” occupying the same timeslot at ABC, was no better off in the demo and only slightly better in viewers with 5.4 million. But whereas “Pitch” was saddled with an awful lead-in from returning drama “Rosewood” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 3.7 million viewers), “Notorious” could not manage a successful hand-off from the night’s top scripted show, “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.5/9, 8.8 million).

NBC’s new comedy “The Good Place,” from creator Mike Schur, the third new series to debut Thursday night, drew a 1.4/5 in 18-49 in the demo and 5.3 million. The half-hour starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson held most of its lead-in from the sophomore season bow of “Superstore” (1.5/6, 5.5 million).

Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Soul Care

22 September 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

A lot can happen in a day.

Or so it seemed on Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 1. Continuity has never been a strength of the #OneChicago verse, but then nobody's watching because of Dick Wolf's commitment to realism. We watch because of the personal drama faced by heroes as they go about their largely thankless work.

And the second season premiere of Med doesn't disappoint. It might not have been as literally explosive as other premieres in the franchise, but it's a safe bet that at least one character ended the night seeing fireworks.

So, it's a little hard to believe that Sarah had a barista job (and didn't suck at it) that quickly, but I'm willing to let that slide. And it looks like I'm going to give a Will a bit more of a break since his past as a NYC plastic surgeon has been retconned. But just a bit more. »

Mariska Hargitay has had to portray a lock of terrifying, disturbing scenarios in 17 seasons on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but the actress and mother of three was especially impacted by one shocking scene in the season 18 premiere. Spoiler warning: If you haven't watched Svu's season 18 premiere, "Terrorized," plot details will be revealed."I don't even [have] words," said Hargitay, 52, about this season's unsettling opening scene, in which a young boy points a loaded gun at Det. Olivia Benson and her son Noah. "Nothing with children is comparable to anything in the past," Hargitay continued during a recent press event for the show. »

Emmy Parties 2016: CAA, UTA, Wme, ICM and Gersh Celebrate Nominees and New Season

17 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Friday night agency party crawl has become a staple of Emmy weekend.

The fortunate few who were invited to all of them had the high-class problem of mapping a route that wound through the home of UTA managing partner Jay Sures in Brentwood, the Little Holmby digs of Gersh’s Leslie Siebert, Bouchon (CAA) in Beverly Hills and Catch La (Wme) in West Hollywood.

Among the Emmy weekend warriors on the circuit were Fox Television Group’s Dana Walden and NBCUniversal Cable’s Bonnie Hammer. Both of them also managed to make time to stop in at the Variety/Women in Film bash at Gracias Madre, just down the street from Wme’s gathering.

9/11 Anniversary: Dick Wolf Remembers The Day That Changed Everything

10 September 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In an eerie case of unfortunate timing, Hollywood woke up on September 11, 2001 to a front-page story in Variety by Deadline’s Mike Fleming announcing Terror, an NBC miniseries from Law & Order creator and quintessential New Yorker Dick Wolf. The premise was a massive terrorist attack on New York City that would draw together the casts and characters of all three of Wolf’s L&O series.

Dick Wolf Producing Unscripted FBI Series at USA Network (Exclusive)

9 September 2016 4:13 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dick Wolf is adding yet another project to his lengthy credits. The super producer is working on an unscripted FBI series at USA Network, sources tell Variety.

The show, which is being produced in conjunction with the FBI, is currently in production and has been shooting in New York for quite some time, according to insiders, who say the network is eyeing a six to eight episode order. Wolf and Wolf Reality’s Tom Thayer will serve as executive producers, along with Marc Levin of Brick City TV and Anne Beagan from the FBI New York office of public affairs.

The project brings Wolf to USA Network with an original series, though the cable net is already home to his “Law & Order” franchise, airing upwards of 100 hours of repeats per month, which are very popular with the USA audience.

The unscripted series is a nice companion to Wolf’s scripted FBI series, which »
