The problem with L & O CI is that in order to pay Jeff Goldblum, Wolf wanted the other actors to take a pay cut, so they quit -- including my fave, Vincent d'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe. It's just not the same. I think if they had kept those actors they could have got another season out of it.

I liked Law & order CI till they put a new cast member in last season and moved to the USA chanel, its not the same nor is it as good!
seeing jeff goldberg, or whatever his name is, he is not made for that show, he is a comedian on a law show, baddd choice.
when he was put in the show i quit watching it.
if you going to replace actors or actress, please think how they fit in as the charactor they are replacing,
make good choices and i bet there ratings are way down too, i am sure i am not the only one that feels this way

The commercials were perfect. Funny as hell and sexy to a perfect extent. We both get a KICK out of them, and they are perfect for a party game to mimic them. Makes for a FUN time.

I am SO glad Criminal Intent is coming back.
They should cancel Law & Order: LA and keep Criminal Intent.

I am so happy that Criminal Intent will be returning. Good grief, if TV keeps getting rid of these attention holding shows, they willl really belong in the loony bin. I love all the Legal shows...Law and Order, Law and Order CI, and
Law and Order SVU. I also wish we could have more newer Criminal Minds. I love to watch how these profilers work. And Dr. Reed is a doll. Such a nerd, but that's what makes him a sweetheart. They are all creat shows. I could watch them all night. Smart move...woo hoo! And, BTW, keep Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon. No more dumb mistakes. Please!

I love Law & Order-Criminal Intent. Hate to see it go, but then "all good things must come to an end."

It was greatt to learn that Mick Jagger will be performing on the Grammys this year. I have seen so many of the different stars in person but was never lucky enough to see Mick. This will be my reason to watch the best rock & roller of all time. My opinion only.
