Re: NBC cancels Law & Order
From James Hibberd at The Hollywood Reporter
Reports are circling that NBC has canceled the longest-running drama currently on broadcast one season before it would have made TV history.
NBC is not commenting on the stories, with one reporter citing an executive producer on the show who heard the news from Dick Wolf's office.
If true, "Law & Order" will end its run after 20 seasons -- one more and it will have beat "Gunsmoke" as the longest-running drama in TV history.
Though NBC was expected to pick up the veteran series, this season's ratings have been dismal and the network is supposedly largely pleased with its new crop of drama series (which include, but is not limited to, J.J. Abrams' "Undercovers," and conspiracy thriller "The Event").
