Possible Reprieve for ‘Law & Order’ on Cable

The gavel supposedly sounded signaling the end of "Law & Order" when NBC canceled the show, but today there are reports that AMC–home of "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad"–is interested in adding new episodes of the legal drama to the network lineup, according to New York Magazine.

The expense of the show makes a deal a long shot, but AMC is considering it even if it means coughing up $3 million per episode, according to the story.

The publication speculates that an established show like "L&O" could draw viewers to the network to sample the critically acclaimed "Men" and "Bad," which aren’t as robust in the ratings as other cable dramas.


  1. HOORAY! The network that brought us Don and Betty may rescue Jack and Connie!

  2. So after “Law & Order” saves A&E network, and then saves TNT after it bought it away from A&E, it now might get the chance to save AMC? That’s a lot of hard work for any show. The “L&O” various shows are omnipresent now on so many different networks that it’s becoming annoying. AMC can make better shows themselves; let this one go.
