Good show, but haven't watched it in a long time. Don't really care one way or the other if it's canceled.
I'd rather watch real crime shows like The First 48 or Crime 360.

NOOOOOOOO, just when the writing was getting really good, if not great! It was stale for a few years, but I have been noticing lately that the scripts had more twists and turns that blockbuster movies, I was loving it!!!!

GRRRRR, LOLA? LA? Ughhhhh, anyhow...at least the franchise is still alive.

Ain't never gonna get the record. 3 more years to catch Bonanza as the longest running drama, but The Simpsons has been on 23 years and still going strong! The longest running show, period.

Great! They keep the lousy SVU segment and cancel the one with the good characters. "Law and Order" is about the only show I watch on network TV.
But they sitill keep "That 70's Show", "Cold Case", etc. Don't the networks realize they need good characters and not these antiseptic looking boring youg actors without any personality. ie" Cold Case, CSI Las Vegas,Scrubs, etc.

NBC has sure screwed up. The greatest show and they just gave it the axe. What a bunch of fools NBC is. I hope their entire ratings on all their shows goes down the tubes. I am a lover of Law & Order. I will watch the reruns on cable and enjoy them. I will never watch your network again. Hope the TV watching public will feel the same way. I would sure like to see your network go down the drain for this gross error on the part of NBC's management, who are a true bunch of idiots.

I guess Sam Waterson is going to have to settle for his residuals from Law & Order and what he gets for those hideous TD Ameritrade commercials.

A lot of people stopped watching L&O when NBC moved it to ten to make room for that has been Jay (I'm in your pocket Obama)Leno.

CRAP!! I liked the show. Good scripts, good acting (for the most part) and now they are replacing it with Law & Order Los Angeles? Will never watch it. SVU had some pretty outlandish plots that made me wince and CI had a different flavor, which I liked, but wasn't the same as the original series.

They had some really good theatre actors doing bit parts in New York because of the close proximity to Broadway and all the other theatres there. The quality was seriously good all over. It deserved at least one last season to make it the longest drama series. Sigh.
