After 20 seasons on the air, NBC has cancelled Law & Order (Original Recipe). Despite the fact that I stopped watching the show several years ago, this is still very sad news for me. I remain a huge fan of the Briscoe Years and it's still the absolute best show to watch if you're home sick from work.
And to be honest, I'm a little disappointed that NBC couldn't find it in their pocketbook to let this show have one more season, just so it could beat Gunsmoke's record as the longest running scripted drama on primetime. A tie isn't nearly as satisfying.
RIP Law & Order. May you live forever in syndication (especially those Briscoe Years).
