North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”

chicago west sounds like a nbc show that’s a ripoff of law & order svu that debuted in the fall of 2007 that came on from 9:30 pm est. that only lasted one season because of bad ratings that returned in 2009 only to be cancelled again the following year

And to everyone who thinks it’s literally pronounced as CHI. No. It’s “Shy”
