FULL SEASON ALERT: Chicago Fire

After a night where a lead-in from The Voice helped it to its best ratings ever, Chicago Fire became the fourth NBC freshman to get a full season. Fire has had ho-hum ratings since its October 10 premiere but it has managed to hold on to its lead-in pretty well every week: rising on events like the 300th episode of Law & Order: SVU and an airing of The Voice while falling when SVU posts disappointing numbers. Other than the first week, it hasn't been able to outperform the lead-in but the bottom didn't fall out and now it has had more exposure. It apparently did enough for NBC to give it a full season.

Chicago Fire joins Revolution, Go On, and The New Normal on the NBC full season order list. Animal Practice has been cancelled so the only freshman that hasn't had its immediate future determined is Guys with Kids. It has had five script orders and I expect at least an extension from episodes and quite possibly a full season if it can grow in the ratings when it is paired with Whitney starting next week.
