Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 11/9

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, President Barack Obama and pollsters win big in a surprisingly short election night. A conspicuously absent Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly plea-bargaining with the Feds. U.S. Cellular sells its Chicago service to Sprint. And in sports, it’s a marquee matchup here as the 7-and-1 Bears tackle the 7-and-1 Houston Texans. And the Bulls’ season starts strong without Derrick Rose as negotiations heat up to end the NHL lockout.

Guests:
- Mary Ann Ahern, NBC-5 News
- Charles Thomas, ABC-7 News
