Sam Waterston to actually be in the SVU squad room on April 28th episode. This will be the first time he has had scenes with Chris Meloni

I was pretty sure that Meloni and Hargitay were confirmed through 2011, which was when their current contracts run out. It's beyond that's in question.

*head-desk* First CSI passes up now L&O? So much for Tulsa!

Then again, I have always been a proponent for either franchise branching out to D.C.

In the 'good news' column, it will likely mean more work for myself and my esteemed colleagues in the biz! WIN!

Why would Law and Order do a DC when SVU is supposed to be a spinoff of L&O and the Baltimore based Homicide Life on the Street. Rerun that in prime time and see what kind of ratings you get! I haven't really followed SVU since they made Munch a phantom cop.

Jimmy Smits is red-hot at NBC. I hear the network has approached him to star in the new Law & Order series, L&O:LA

The network is clearly looking for a big name to front LOLA. I also heard ramblings that it approached Dermot Mulroney, who toplines another NBC drama pilot in limbo, Rockford Files, forthe new Dick Wolf series.

Well, I would expect that the network will bend over backwards to indulge the wishes of the producers of Law and Order: Los Angeles. Because as we know, whatever LOLA wants, LOLA gets. ;)

Jimmy Smits? For a show set in and titled Los Angeles, I was thinking more... Christian Slater and Young MC? ;)

Unless it does real well, I don't see it getting picked up for more.

Can someone give me the ratings for the current L&O shows?

And what would NBC say is the cut-off point for dumping them?

I don't have the specific ratings... but I would imagine the cut off point for cancellation would be losing money on the show. As long as they can keep rotating cast to keep it cheap, I don't believe it will ever be canceled.

^And sharing the costs with TNT certainly helps.

And let's face it, given how much trouble NBC is having filling it schedule, they can't really afford to cancel any show they can still break even on.

SVU is getting close to being canceled only because everyone wants to leave the show or get paid an insane amount.

CI no one cares about and is cheap considering everyone left.

Vanilla was supposed to end this year but still get's 7+ million viewers on a dieing network so they gave it an unofficial pick up of 13 episodes.

So I think it's a safe bet if LA get's 7-8 million viewers it will get a full season. Then next year they will need to decide which ones are worth it, because Vanilla and SVU could both end and that would only leave LA standing.
