Something was wrong with Ellen DeGeneres a week ago Thursday -- her eyes were all puffy, and she looked as if a tiny, adorable kitten had died in her arms moments before she hit the soundstage to shoot her chat show.

The Boston Marathon bombing and the resulting heroics of police, firefighters and other emergency workers might seem like a natural jumping-off point for an episode or story on "Chicago Fire," NBC's drama about emergency workers at a fictional Chicago firehouse. But executive producer Dick Wolf said "Chicago Fire" will not tackle the real-life Boston situation, largely because the bombing was a terrorist attack. "The last thing we want to do is exploit a tragedy," Wolf told reporters in Pasadena who had gathered for a media day centered on NBC Universal shows.
