It sounds like a Tribune writer and many others had the same reaction. Some fans of the show have even created facebook pages to try to save it:
By day, Michelle Ford is a mild-mannered worker at the University of Chicago's student counseling center.
But at night? She's a warrior for "The Chicago Code."
"HOW DARE THEY CANCEL THIS SHOW!" she wrote on her facebook page
on Monday night as the Fox show wound toward its harrowing climax. "They better not replace it with some ... crap!"
The matter of the fact is that this show probably isn't coming back and the "crap" Michelle references is probably a lot cheaper to produce than a drama in Chicago.
Regardless, ratings were up 12% last week against the A18-49 demo. Maybe there will be a second life for this show...
Don't hold your breathe.
