What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, the Law & Order TV show revival stars Sam Waterson, Anthony Anderson, Hugh Dancy, Jeffrey Donovan, Camryn Manheim, and Odelya Halevi. Set in New York City, stories follow the police who investigate crimes and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. The characters include District Attorney Jack McCoy (Waterson), Assistant District Attorney Samantha Maroun (Odelya), Assistant District Attorney Nolan Price (Dancy), Lieutenant Kate Dixon (Manheim), Detective Kevin Bernard (Anderson), and Detective Frank Cosgrove (Donovan). Stories are often based on real cases and episodes are split between a criminal investigation and the trial that follows.
Season 21 Ratings
The 21st season of Law & Order averaged a 0.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.32 million viewers.

There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

What do you think? Are you glad that the Law & Order TV show has been renewed for a 22nd season? How would you feel if NBC had cancelled this TV series, instead?
Love the new season and the program is excellent. Love the new detective. Hope it’s here
I’ve always liked all of the shows in the Law & Order franchise. However, the “new” Law & Order is not anywhere near the standards they’ve set. The writing is sub-par, the stories aren’t compelling, and the acting is dreadful. This one needs to go.
By far the worst season of Law and Order. I don’t expect it to be renewed. Donovan, Dancy & Halevi aren’t credible at all, their acting is just bad. I won’t be watching anymore. Disapointing.
I would feel okay if National Broadcasting Company cancels Law & Order instead
Not as good as I expectet, which is a disappointment. I like Jefferey Donovan, but not in this. Will give it a couple more episodes and if no improvement will stop watching.
Please boost your number ratings for looking forward to seeing it, enjoy it and love it so far so good court drama.
Love the show but Hugh Dancy and Camryn Manheim not doing it for me at all.
I think the problem is the actors just don’t fit the show ! Jack And Anthony good BUT they need to get back some of the previous actors to regain the feel of the show
Very disappointed. The show has lost its punch. The scripts are tepid and the courtroom scenes seem to be written by someone who has never watched a real trial. It’s nice to see Sam Waterson back but it would be even nicer if he had more than a couple of [lame] lines. Maybe this revivial should have waited until all the viewers of the original Law and Order were dead.
Glad to see Sam Waterston back but not a fan of Anthony Anderson.
Anderson’s ok, just be thankful his mother isn’t on.
Love this show but Sam Waterston needs to retire.
