MyNetworkTV is a collection of syndicated TV stations, running repeats of NBC programs during the week. Chicago Fire will air back-to-back episodes on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, which is ironically the same day that reruns of the show also are available starting at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT on ION.
Crime drama fans won’t be surprised that MyNetworkTV is using Fire to replace Criminal Intent; the Law & Order spinoff ended a decade ago in 2011, and Chicago Fire is still on the air. The network programmers are likely looking to offer something different, and the change also means that all the shows on MyNetworkTV are ones that are current.
The One Chicago franchise is Dick Wolf’s biggest property at the moment, with new episodes still airing on NBC every Wednesday night and the ION deal announced earlier this year. Adding MyNetworkTV to the equation means more money for Universal Television, which makes the show, and another option for fans to see reruns without having to sign up for a streaming service like Hulu or NBCUniversal’s own Peacock.
The rest of the MyNetworkTV 2021-2022 schedule includes Chicago PD (Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and Fridays from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Mondays from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), and true crime newsmagazine Dateline (Wednesdays from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT and Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT).
