I might get rid of "The Fugitive" series and keep the unaired pilot since only the first episodes were set in Chicago and the rest moved around the country.

Correct title: This Is Chicago on TV!

Or...this might be a fun title: Chicago Is...My Kind of Show

I don't think you need to have the descriptions on the Untouchables - the shows are 40 years apart - I think people will be able to tell that it is a different show. However, if you DO decide to keep it, it should be AL Capone, not Alphonse.

FYC (in order what most important first):
Sirens
Mike & Molly
Punky Brewster (!)
Webster
Happy Endings
Chicago Med
The Steve Harvey Show
The Exorcist
The League
My Boys
Soul Food
According to Jim
Anything but Love
Boss
Early Edition
Kenan & Kel
Sense8

Titles I would drop for lack of votes (less than 500):
The Fugitive TV Movie - 8 votes
Chicago Story - 26
Chicago Story TV Movie - 31
Bleacher Bums TV Movie '79 - 50
Barbershop - 222
Untouchables '93 - 310
Bleacher Bums TV Movie '01 - 425

Most have been added . Thanks. But, well, this is from The Museum of Chicago Broadcast History. Relax and enjoy the show in about nine parts. It is never getting off the list no matter how few votes it has.

Weather should be whether.

Also, in your list, I would suggest removing the link to the other suggestion. It is sufficient having it here in the thread.

'Nice to tribute to Chi-town!

The setting in Hill Street Blues was an anonymous city, though.

May I suggest two edits? (In bold type)

Whether they paint the city in a good light or a bad light, all of these T.V. series and made-for-T.V. movies are set in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., or the Chicagoland area. Which is your favorite?

'No problem at all. This poll makes me miss Chicago. I lived there for a year when I was nineteen and haven't been able to make it back since; I miss it and am motivated now to get back. :)

Thank you. This one is personal because I really wanted to showcase the city and it's surrounding Chicagoland area.
