    I’ll definitely check out the new series.

    I loved the original L&O until the end and Criminal Intent until D’Onofrio started seeing a psychiatrist. It would have been awful if they had done that with Columbo. It was interesting when Columbo indulged a few suspects but it wasn’t on-going.

    For me, SVU was over shortly after Chris was written off. The sex crimes got tiresome and they began to devote too much time with the personal lives of the main characters.

    (I liked L&O UK also.)

    Never watched any of the other L&O shows but I used to love SVU because of Chris Meloni (big fan of his since 1991 when he was in a wonderful TV movie with Valerie Bertinelli called In a Child's Name) and I stopped watching when he left. I will definitely watch the beginning SVU crossover to see him with Mariska Hargitay then I will watch Organized Crime.

    D’Onofrio was precisely the reason I stopped watching CI! I couldn't stand the way he ALWAYS knew someone who could help him solve the case each and every week!

    But that was the writers, not D'Onofrio. He was great...really elevated the material to another level.

    I didn't say I blamed him personally. In fact, other things I've seen him in (Daredevil, Ratched, etc.) have been great. I blame the show itself and if that's the writers (or the directors/showrunners), then so be it. The end result was a show I, personally, found unpalatable.

    I watched L&O back when it first started in the 1990s! I remember Chris Noth being one of the detectives and Michael Moriarty being one of the lawyers, but stopped 2-3 years in when it just became the same old every week. I'm still amazed that it's still around, but then again, people love the various recycled police procedurals on CBS too, so I shouldn't be.

    Well, at least Andy can be seen on classic SNLs.

    Oh my! :( I'm very surprised by this. This has been a great comedy show and it's very disappointing that it w/b gone so soon.

    I still laugh when I think of my favorite cold open. It was S03, E03, named 'Boyle's Hunch' and the cold open had this hilarious bit with a tarantula.

    Bah. They were trying to juice the ratings and thought rematching them in the new series would make ratings magic.

    (I think there was some OTHER renewal/reboot I was going to post here but now I can't remember what that was.. this is from about a week ago and I see it wasn't discussed at least in the last couple of pages of this thread)

    There's Finally an Update on the 'Frasier' Reboot

    I'd rather have a show that would focus more on Niles and Daphne. Glad they are a part of this. It sucks that it won't be on a network or cable channel, however. It's like if you want to see all the shows that were from network tv, in their reboots, you have to pay for yet another streaming service. That irks me.

    Bonus round: I did not know that Lisa Kudrow was initially going to have the Roz role. I like her, but I think Peri Gilpin really did a perfect job with that role. Likewise, LK was perfect for the Phoebe Buffet role.

    Of course if Lisa was Roz and someone else was Phoebe, you'd be used to that by now and not even think of them as those characters. If you think of Lisa in her post Friends/Mad About You characters, I can see her working as Roz. When you think of her as "Phoebe" then no, it doesn't seem to work.

    As for the reboots, bah, not a fan, most don't work, but I will say that the Mad About You reboot worked perfectly. I just wish they'd come up with new ideas rather than play on our fandom of these other series

    I think this is the one I was trying to remember when I posted the other day..

    There's a new Wipeout coming on TBS. John Cena is one of the hosts.
