Chicago Code got canceled. But Shameless got renewed. I hate Shameless and think its portrayal of the city is ludicrous, but, there you go.

I remember reading this a while back about Mike and Molly. The writer lists all the factual inaccuracies in it involving Chicago.

Fat chance - Comedy - Time Out Chicago

It's no surprise that Hollywood and New York TV execs view Chicago as ground zero for Midwestern "verisimilitude". Big surprise they're trying to reach a new demographic by showing it totally denatured and inaccurate TV shows about itself.

It's that much more ironic thanks to what Second City used to be

well, it's still cool to hear our own city named instead of constantly seeing ny and california.

Sure, but I just wish they wouldn't misrepresent it so wildly.

I read that Traffic Light also got canceled. It's a shame; I like that show. I will also miss the Chicago Code

TV misrepresents damned near everything. I don't give a damn how this town is portrayed by rascals for idiots.
