Chicago West’s Name Led To A Twitter Joke About Your Mom’s Fave TV Show
Once it was announced that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were having a third child, one of the first questions that came to mind was what they would name him or her. And now, only four days after their new daughter was welcomed into the world, we know her name: Chicago West. Of course, as with any child of Kimye, the name really got people talking, and there's a lot of jokes going around, too. One that's particularly amazing? People referring to Chicago West's name as if it's the title of a procedural television show.
Now, little Chicago's name is adorable and a fitting tribute to her dad's hometown, but you have to admit it also sounds like it could be joining NBC's roster of Chicago-based TV series this fall. In fact, Chicago Fire (director: Holly Dale, four episodes) co-creator Dick Wolf is probably groaning because Kim ruined his idea for a fifth Chicago based spin-off that dealt entirely with the lives of people who fight crime out of a building in west Chicago — although, if he waits about 24 years, that show could have the perfect star.
In the meantime, Twitter is having a blast coming up with ideas for Chicago West TV shows and generally running with the idea that Kimye's newest addition to the family has a name that could also double as the ultimate procedural TV show title.

It's Your Mom's Favorite Procedural
Don't be surprised if your mom sounds puzzled when you text her the exciting news about Chicago West. There's an excellent chance she may think her favorite procedural just got renewed and wonder if you're trying to tell her that Kim is the new lead.

Who do people need to call at NBC to make this happen? Because honestly, Chicago West is already a hit.
Twitter may have a point about Chicago's name giving off procedural vibes, but that's just further proof that Chicago — like her sister North and brother Saint — is already a star. And yes, she probably will have a self-titled TV show one day that will be a mega-hit. Until then, enjoy the memes, Kimye fans.
