Save The Chicago Code?

"Chicago Code creator and executive producer Shawn Ryan, who was honored at the Hugo Awards last week, told guests that the show's ratings for the next three weeks will be critical in determining the Fox show's renewal for another season," Reel Chicago reports.

"A good sign is improved ratings. Chicago Code Fan reported that Fox's overnight ratings for the April 11 episode, a repeat, pulled in 5.98 million viewers with a 1.8 in the coveted 18-49 demos. This a sharp uptick from the March 28-April 3 report of 3.9 million total viewers."


"Despite steady numbers, the show is still facing not being renewed for a second season. Recent ratings show the series holds steady anywhere between 7-8 million viewers since its premiere on Feb. 07, 2011," an online petition to get the show renewed says.

"Like any other good story, The Chicago Code needs more than one season to really tell it all."


This, however, really raised the hackles of the Beachwood Code crowd on Monday nights. Mancow? Really?


Also disappointing: Sneed "reports" that Code star Jennifer Beals "just put in a request to be part of the mayoral inaugural celebration." C'mon, Jenny!


The Code won't air in its regularly scheduled Monday slot next week but will be back on May 2nd with this (from Fox):

"While Teresa and Jarek set the stage for their case against Alderman Gibbons, their effort to clean up Chicago takes an unexpected turn when a deadlocked jury acquits a corrupt city official. Suspicious, the two mount an investigation, only to discover that jury tampering is just the tip of the iceberg in the all-new 'Bathhouse & Hinky Dink' episode of The Chicago Code airing Monday, May 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX."
