    Criminal Intent just plain sucks, IMO. SVU will still be on NBC next year, but there are rumors that Chris Meloni will leave the show after next year, which would suck. Also the writing for SVU has been really bad lately. Maybe the writing will improve now. I'm just really pissed. They could have let it live one more year so it could become the longest running drama on TV, and take the title away from Gunsmoke (which is a horrible show).

    I honestly don't understand why the NBC execs are baffled by their low ratings. L&O is an institution, with many viewers; it was one of the last reasons that I ever have my TV on NBC. I remember I saw a taping of L&O in NYC once, and I was actually in an episode (I was walking by a "murder scene").

    After Lenny died, I didn't watch (that and Mccoy was seen rarely when he became DA or whatever). I vastly prefer SVU.

    That said, it's sad to see an amazing show get cancelled.

    Yeah, I stopped watching around that time as well. Jerry Orbach was great in that role. It's still kind of sad to see it go.

    I can't believe they did this. There spinoffs will never be as good as their originals.

    its going to be completly different. Instead of the mean streets of NYC its going to be the mean streets of compton :rolleyes:
    Sucks for all the production people... maybe they will move to LA on the new show.

    Chuck has also been renewed for a 4th season.

    I don't know why they would stop at 20, tying the record. I would have thought they would have at least put a record breaking season out.

    I've watched all of the L&O series on and off for ~15 years, but I'd say that I've really been avoiding all things L&O for the past 2-3 years.

    I really just got sick of the show. I was too used to the timing of each episode, and knew when things would start to be revealed and unravel. The formula just became too obvious to me.

    It was an awesome show, and it had a great run, but IMO, it was time to let it go.


    And yeah, the Jerry Orbach years were the best.

    It's amazing that it's run for 20 seasons. LOLA? I was hoping that was a joke because it's not going to be the same show if it's set in L.A. Too bad it's not LOAZ. Just to see them ask perps to see their papers :D

    My wife won't be happy to hear that. Though now she has a Ghost Whisperer show to occupy her as well, so maybe it won't be as bad of a hit.

    Don't worry. I just heard that they are replacing it with a Law & Order Parking Violations Unit.

    Too bad they did it. Law & Order is one of the best serials ever.

    They did it because Law and Order are trademarked names for Chuck Noris' left and right legs. They were afraid of him...

    They should have canceled Chuck, and renewed L&O. L&O is a vastly superior TV show.

    Dick Wolf has supposedly said that he won't let them (NBC) kill it that easily, so maybe he's going to try to find another network to pick it up. TNT is picking L&O: Trial By Jury up in December, so maybe they'll pick the original L&O up too.

    Rumors are that NBC might be planning a movie finally send off next season.

    Wow! I'm beginning to think there is a god. First Flash Forward, then this. Two very good decisions in one week. This gives me hope that maybe people are beginning to demand better shows.

    You're half right.

    Flash Forward deserved to die, but L&O is a great show that never should've been cancelled. It was the only crime drama that actually stuck to some form of reality, and the only reason why I watched NBC. I'll remain somewhat happy as long as the next season isn't SVU's last.

    I have no hope for L&OLA.

    I wonder if it could be worse than the horrible NCIS: LA?

    It's a shame they are cancelling it as I was hoping it would get to season number 21.
