This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, the holiday shopping season is in full gear. Black Friday is increasingly becoming Black Thursday, with more stores opening on Thanksgiving Day. But will it get retailers out of the red? We take a look at the hottest products and top deals this holiday season, and the role of social media in getting people to shop. The Illinois unemployment rate is going up, even as the state adds jobs. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Board President Preckwinkle unveil fee increases and spending cuts in their 2012 budgets. And the U.S. economy is growing slowly amid turmoil in Europe.
