We’re ready to check in with Firehouse 51 for more crazy calls. Is a new episode of Chicago Fire going to air tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 23? We would love to check in with more calls for Firehouse 51 to attend. We love watching them work together as they save lives, and then there are all the personal relationships that happen within the firehouse. There is some bad news tonight. With it being the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that Chicago Fire isn’t airing a new episode tonight. A lot of people travel ready for Thanksgiving Day, so the networks know not to put any big shows on tonight. The live ratings take too much of a dip.
There isn’t a rerun on tonight, either. In the 8 p.m. ET/PT time slot, we’re getting Countdown to Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. Then in the 9 p.m. ET/PT time slot for two hours, we’re getting a rerun of last year’s SNL Thanksgiving special.It looks like there is going to be a bit of a break for new episodes. We’ll get Chicago Fire season 11, episode 9 on Wednesday, Dec. 7. This is a little later than we would like. We had hoped to just have a one-week break for Thanksgiving. With such a long wait, NBC hasn’t told us much about the episode. We do have a promo, which sees Kidd and some others heading into a precarious situation in a house. Severide is outside, confused about where his wife is. What’s the betting that this is going to leave us on a cliffhanger until the show returns? The good news is we won’t have to wait too long for the winter premiere. NBC has confirmed that to be Wednesday, Jan. 4.
