Law & Order: SVU Boss on Amaro's Arrest, Benson's Baby Debate and the "Big Change" Ahead

Danny Pino

Last month, Law & Order: SVU showrunner Warren Leight had to face the dilemma so many TV writers deal with when the flowers start blooming and upfronts near: write a season finale that leaves stories unresolved or write a season finale that can also serve as a series finale if the show is not renewed.

"I didn't want to make it too easy for the network," Leight tells TVGuide.com of his decision to go the former route. "I wasn't looking to... read more

SVU Says Goodbye to Capt. Cragen: Will Olivia Be Put in Charge?

Dann Florek

Longtime Law & Order: SVU castmember Dann Florek had one stipulation when discussing his exit from the series with showrunner Warren Leight.

"Dann said, 'I don't like parties. I don't want a party,'" Leight tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "But he does have a nice 'farewell to the troops' moment in this episode."

On Wednesday's episode (9/8c, NBC), Capt. Cragen will retire from the force after 15 seasons of SVU and three seasons on the original flagship series — all of which makes him the longest-running character in Law & Order history. "We set this thing in motion where, for the first time ever, he had a hint of a social life," Leight said in reference to... read more

Danny Pino and Raul Esparza

This week, both Law & Order: SVU and Scandal will rip from the headlines of the Anthony Weiner firestorm. So is SVU showrunner Warren Leight worried about any possible — ahem — overexposure?

"No because we go first," Leight tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "They're very different shows. This actually gave us a way to explore Barba and where he comes from and his relationship to his youth that he left far behind.

The Wednesday Playlist: ABC's Got Family Game, Broadchurch Finale, SVU

Maggie Lawson

ABC's innocuous new sitcom about likable underdogs, Back in the Game, could just as easily be called "Luck of the Draw." This Bad News Bears-lite gets a major assist right out of the gate with an enviable time period (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c) sandwiched between TV's best family comedies, The Middle and Modern Family. Which could always backfire, of course, if the show doesn't live up to ratings expectations, and while this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings. read more
