Chicago Med (9 p.m., NBC) – The third in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” trilogy, this one about a hospital emergency department (Disclaimer: If “Law & Order” is any indication, I’m sure Wolf has plans for this franchise to move beyond the trilogy phase). In the opener, an influx of crash victims arrive at the ER. Expect lots of crossovers with “Chicago Fire” (Tuesday 10 p.m.) and “Chicago PD” (Wednesday 10 p.m.).
