Every day is a fight for life as the doctors, nurses, and staff of Gaffney Chicago Medical Center return for a season 3 premiere on its new night, Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 10-11 pm ET/PT on NBC this fall as part of the Chicago franchise. The season 2 finale saw victories with new love as Dr. Choi reveals his love for ER nurse April, the discovery of and removal of a brain tumor, which was the cause of Robin’s erratic behavior. There was the introduction of new colleague Dr. Bekkar who causes friction with Dr. Rhodes. There was also heartache with Dr. Halstead breaking up with Nina, and most importantly, the shooting of psychiatrist Dr. Charles by one of his former patients.
The first two hours of NBC’s triple crossover between Chicago Fire (NBC, 9/8C), Chicago Med (NBC, 10/9C) and Chicago P.D. (NBC, Wednesday, 10/9C) is an ingeniously put together epic tale that sets up threads for Chicago Med in Chicago Fire and some of those threads work through to tomorrow night’s Chicago P.D. in such a way that – even with each show having its own internal subplots cooking – there is a feeling of the three hours adding up to a satisfying whole.

This last week has been a bloodbath for the big four networks as they cleared out nearly thirty shows to make room for new ones that will, hopefully, perform better. NBC alone canceled About A Boy, Allegiance, A to Z, Bad Judge, Constantine, Marry Me, One Big Happy, and State of Affairs. In their place will be what the network is describing as a schedule of ‘compelling dramas, new comedies and returning favorites.’
New dramas include Blindspot (above, starring Jamie Alexander, Thor), Chicago Med (Chicago PD/Chicago Fire spinoff, Crime of Silence (legal thriller based on a Turkish format), Heartbreaker (medical soap), The Player (starring Wesley Snipes), Shades of Bluee (effective but corrupt cops).
New comedies include Coach (limited series reboot of the Craig T. Nelson series), Crowded (Empty nesters’ grown kids move back home), Hot and Bothered (telenovela), People Are Talking (two neighbor couple who have no filters – if they think it, they say it), and Superstore (the lives of the staff of a big box store).
