Re: The most fascinating thing about the L&O finale

Except that NBC's rationale for killing Law & Order was that it had become too expensive (to the point that it was trying to get TNT to fork out anywhere between a quarter and almost half -- depending on which source you believe -- of the production costs for Season 21) in light of plummeting ratings, and the budget had already been slashed in recent years (which resulted in Sam Waterston taking a significant pay cut and a lesser role in order to stay on the show). Given that Erbe's contract, after so many years, had to have been providing her rather significant compensation, I really don't think she would have been re-hired for Vanilla.
