15 bubble shows: Which will survive?

The episode is titled "Reasonable Doubt" and sees Frank accused of molesting their eight-year-old daughter. However, Catherine refuses to cooperate in the investigation, which leads the squad to suspect the accusations were fabricated to curry public favor in the media. Things get even more complicated when Catherine's younger sister Rose (Dallas' Emma Bell) becomes engaged to Frank. Ousted Today show co-anchor Ann Curry and Geraldo Rivera will also appear in the episodes as themselves.

"Reasonable Doubt" is set to air May 7.
