But is being replaced by Law and Order: Los Angeles.  I wonder if Sam Waterston will be packing up his TD Waterhouse account and becoming the LA DA.

For a second there I thought SVU was going to get the axe as well, and was about to get very upset at the lack of new opportunities to see Mariska Hargitay.

I prefer the original to SVU. SVU is more about emotions and the cops satisfying their unconscious desires (Mariska Hargitay catching rapists, etc.). The original was always about the system, which I found a lot more interesting. Lately, though, SVU has been more watchable since all of the main characters left at once leaving little to no bridge to the past seasons.

Loved Lennie, his one-liners were the best.  I can watch reruns of this series over and over without it ever getting old.

Lennie: We don't really give a damn about these people looting and bustin' up people's cars. That's not our department. We're homicide.
Suspect: So?
Lennie: So, your friend there is homicidin' somebody.

I wouldn't be surprised to see SVU on the chopping block before too long.  They have pretty much run out of ideas for the show.  And they haven't had a good prosecutor since the Peaches era.

It's rerun every hour, on the hour. Probably on it's way to it's own network.

But I'm not that keen on Waterston as head DA. And the Cops haven't been the same since Lenny and Greene.

But we may be losing our best 2nd chair ever...
