On the heels of its ratings climb last night, NBC‘s freshman drama Chicago Fire has received an order for five additional scripts. It is the same script order NBC recently gave freshman comedy Guys With Kids. After dropping 21% in Week 2, Chicago Fire rebounded last night, up 20% from last Wednesday to a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. It was helped by its lead-in, the 300th episode of veteran Law & Order: SVU (1.8, up 13%). Both series hail from Wolf Films and Universal TV.
