According to an article in the HOTP thread, L&O:SVU has been renewed for a seventeenth season.

I must ask: Why?

The ratings for it are woefully low, consistently finishing third fourth or fifth in ratings (when you finish behind Univision, you're in trouble).

It's the last surviving member of the L&O universe. Time to put this puppy to bed.

Maybe it's just that? The last survivor of the L&O franchise so they want to preserve it. 17th season though. Maybe NBC should create a new series.

I still like the new episodes. I watched last night's live and I enjoyed it. Bring Back NBC's Las Vegas!

I still like this show and other CBS procedural type shows. For some reason I continue to watch Criminal Minds also. Not sure why, I have plenty of other content to watch. Love Blue Bloods.

However, after watching Hawaii Five O for the first 4(?) seasons I dropped it this year. Same with the Mentalist.

If the show does reach it's conclusion, I would like to see them offer a new show in the original L&O format - 1/2 cop show and 1/2 courtroom drama.

I too still like SVU. It is formulaic and often predictable but the supporting performances are uniformly good so I still look forward to the show.

^^ Same here. That was a flawless episode until they pulled that silly stunt with the baby in the end
Completely unbelievable and unnecessary too. Felt like one of those silly endings from the many awful reality shows out there

I agree. The ending was completely ridiculous. Talk about a small world!
