Critic’s Corner: What’s on TV Wednesday

Chicago Fire 10 p.m., NBC

There’s nothing exceptional about this show. The plots go through predictable paces, as the folks at the firehouse undergo love affairs, competitions, injuries, and internal investigations. The actors in the large ensemble are fine, but only one — Taylor Kinney (pictured) — really has distinction. And yet I haven’t missed an episode. And I don’t plan to miss any between now and the end of the season. And I am not alone because the ratings have been decent, hovering between 6-7 million — strong enough that NBC has already renewed the series and is planning a Chicago cops spinoff. Go figure. It’s a classic TV comfort-food situation, from the maker of “Law & Order.”

Million Dollar Listing: New York 10 p.m., Bravo

A 9,200-square-foot apartment in TriBeCa with a pool. Drool. The show returns for season 2 with plenty of real estate porn, as well as Bravo-style drama. Real estate agents Fredrik Eklund (right) and Ryan Serhant (left) return, and they are joined by Luis D. Ortiz (center) for a few new rounds of sabotage and revenge. Remember: A lot of scenes on the show, like the apartments for sale, have been staged.
