Chicago Med: Yes, That Was Justice's [Spoiler]! — Plus, a 'Chexton' Surprise

Chicago Med: Yes, That Was Justice's [Spoiler]! — Plus, a 'Chexton' Surprise
If Chicago Med made you do a double-take on Wednesday, that’s perfectly understandable. The episode featured a guest spot from Chicago Justice vet Joelle Carter, who starred as private investigator Laura Nagel on the short-lived spinoff. But on this week’s Med, Carter played a completely different character: a former patient of Will’s who became a drug addict after he prescribed her opioids.

Co-showrunner Andrew Schneider credits director/executive producer Michael Pressman with bringing Carter back into the #OneChicago universe in a very different way. “[He] had worked extensively with her on Justified and thought she would be great for this,

Law & Order: Svu Season 21 Episode 5 Review: At Midnight in Manhattan

Whoa, talk about intense.

Law & Order: Svu totally broke the unrealistic trope of TV cops focusing on only one case at a time.

Instead, Law & Order: Svu Season 21 Episode 5 threw three cases the detectives' way. No wonder tensions boiled over.

Each of the three cases was an interesting story in its own right. Taken together, they told a story about the role privilege plays in rape investigations.

It was a more subtle message than Law & Order: Svu has made in a long time, and even Benson might not have fully got it.

Chloe was easily the most privileged of the three survivors.

Her parents' money and connections got her case personal attention, and Svu had to stop the parents from interfering.

Chloe's parents could have destroyed the entire case. They tried to pressure Chloe into identifying the wrong man, and she initially obliged.

TV Q: Are Midseason Debuts Cancelled More Often Than Fall Launches? Or Does It Only Seem That Way?

At this time of year, when I go to report on broadcast-tv ratings, I will often look at the numbers for a midsession launch and wonder: “Why did they even bother airing this? Might simply running an inexpensive test pattern do nearly as well?”

I mean, are the new scripted shows saved for late winter, spring or summer not much more than cannon fodder? Is there a correlation between when a freshman series is premiered and its chances (or the network’s internal forecast) for survival?

Before I drown you in data, answer me this: What percentage of midsession series

Driven by an ensemble of complicated characters, the show lets the audience ask if truth matters less than who can tell the most compelling story.

Tippett will play Lucius King, Rachel’s second chair.

Time for ‘Schooled': How 8 Other Broadcast Spinoffs Are Doing in TV Ratings
The Goldbergs” celebrated the ’80s, and its spinoff “Schooled” is bringing fans into the ’90s. But how will Lainey Lewis’ (Aj Michalka) new decade do in 2019?

Spinoffs are advantageous as, by the term’s very definition, one would start with a built-in audience from a (generally) successful I.P. That doesn’t mean they can’t fall flat on their faces. “Joey,” anyone? Oh, right, literally not anyone, which is why the “Friends” follow-up series was canceled after just two seasons.

So what can “Schooled” expect when it debuts on Wednesday? TheWrap looked at how each of the eight presently airing scripted broadcast TV spinoffs are doing this season. We’ve ranked them below from highest-rated to lowest.

Ratings: J Lo’s ‘Shades of Blue’ Season 3 Starts Quietly, NBC Settles for Second
There’s no gray area about it: “Shades of Blue” didn’t perform very well with its Season 3 premiere on Sunday.

The NBC cop drama, starring Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, just slipped 40 percent in ratings from its sophomore start. To be fair, back then, “Shades of Blue” was paired with a better lead-in, the time slot debut of “Chicago Justice.”

ABC finished first again last night with its run of summer game shows.
