IMPORTANT L&O: CRIMINAL INTENT NEWS

Couple of items about Law & Order: Criminal Intent to pass along.

Futon Critic is reporting that starting next week this show will move the final two episodes of the season to the 10PM/9 Central timeslot on Monday nights to replace the just-pulled Real Wedding Crashers. The episodes will then repeat on Tuesdays. To me it looks like this might be a vote of confidence in the show, and the folks at NBC may be looking at Monday as a potential place to put the L&O franchise. Just my thought. On another note, NBC renewed Medium, so I don't know what that does to the Law & Order shows and their chances of survival. We should know more by the end of the week.

Also, tonight at 9PM/8 Central is the famous Anna Nicole episode that has been rumored and talked about, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself Kristy Swanson portraying some sort of semblance of her on tonight's show. (I think names are going to be changed to protect the innocent, etcetera, etcetera.) For those of you who thought Willa Ford was playing Anna Nicole-- actually she still is, but it's for a TV movie, not this show.

Tonight's show may be a make or break episode as far as the ratings are concerned. Hey, it's sweeps you know.

In other TV news--- this has nothing to do with Law & Order: Criminal Intent, but Fox renewed the Saturday late-night show Talkshow with Spike Feresten. Good.
