Since pretty much its second year or so, SVU has whupped the other two Law & Order programs in the ratings (contrast to Vanilla, which has languished in ratings for years, outside of Linus Roache's first -- NBC has kept it on the air largely as a courtesy to Dick Wolf, and because Wolf agreed to slash its budget a few years ago). It is by far the most popular of the Law & Order series, and a not insignificant part of that is due to it being a more traditional program, with deep characterizations, character-centric plots, occasional story arcs / recurring plotlines, and -- for a time, anyway -- the ever-important romantic tension between the leads. SVU has a huge female audience.
