"Law & Order: SVU" Possibly To End?
Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com says NBC is playing hardball with the stars of "Law & Order: SVU" and seems more than willing to end the run of one of its few hit shows. Usually it's Dick Wolf who is willing to dismiss stars and have them replaced, but this time it's NBC. The network is so desperate, however, I can't see them letting it go. Even if the strs walk, NBC will just get Wolf to replace them eith newer and cheaper names. Friedman also has a nice, unvarnished but loving look at the death of Ahmet Ertegun of Atlantic Records, reminding us that Atlantic shortchanged many R&B stars on royalties but keeping the music and his massive contributions front and center.
