SOCCER, AND NOT-QUITE REALITY TV

“Chicago Fire,” a television series that follows the lives of firefighters and paramedics at a Chicago Fire Department station, will debut on NBC on October 10, airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern/9 p.m. Central.  [October 1]

Comment:  So the Windy City now has two Chicago Fires.  One is a soccer team that’s won an MLS Cup (1998, its inaugural season), and four U.S. Open Cups (’98, 2000, ’03 and ’06).  The other is a network TV show.

With the national election fast approaching next month, perhaps TV can come up with a politically themed show called “DC United.”   It would be pure fantasy and ideally made for the Syfy channel.
