The same old summer time TV hiatus has prolonged nicely into the autumn within the 2023 TV schedule for NBC and different main broadcast networks, which has meant loads of reruns in primetime. As a result of WGA writers strike and ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors strike, the three Regulation & Order reveals are amongst these that do not have any new episodes but for the 2023-2024 TV season, and NBC kicked off the franchise’s fall run with repeats of Regulation & Order: SVU. That has now shifted to the unique Regulation & Order, however I discover myself simply lacking Christopher Meloni’s Regulation & Order: Organized Crime for a few causes.
How NBC Has Been Airing Reruns
NBC aired 4 episodes of SVU to start out the autumn season, beginning with the three-part BX9 arc and concluding with Bradley Whitford taking part in his second Particular Victims character. Then, on November 2, the community aired the “Concern and Loathing” episode of Regulation & Order that premiered again in February, and the subsequent franchise repeat in November will likely be one other episode of the unique sequence.
On the time of writing, NBC hasn’t introduced any Regulation & Order dates past the November 9 repeat, however the community appears to be rotating via the reveals equally to what One Chicago is doing on Wednesday nights. But when NBC goes to rotate via all three of the L&O reveals, when is Organized Crime going to get its shot?
Why Regulation & Order And SVU Make Me Miss Organized Crime
Organized Crime admittedly is not my favourite of the L&O reveals, as that honor will probably at all times go to SVU in gentle of how most of the present’s 500+ episodes I’ve watched. Nonetheless, seeing SVU get 4 weeks of reruns adopted by at the very least two weeks of Regulation & Order makes it arduous to miss that it has been some time since we have seen the Organized Crime Management Bureau.
I actually began to note their absence throughout SVU‘s BX9 arc repeat, beginning with the one factor that also would not make sense about Benson and Stabler, and getting stronger with Chris Meloni getting what amounted to a cameo as Stabler for the now-infamous near-miss kiss with Mariska Hargitay’s Benson. Seeing him made me wish to see the remainder of the staff, not least as a result of it could be good to rewatch episodes from earlier than Jamie Whelan’s tragic loss of life.
Certain, I went forward and rewatched the Regulation & Order: OC pilot not too way back (and determined Stabler giving Benson the letter is approach worse when trying again), however Organized Crime is not out there streaming for followers with Peacock Premium subscriptions like each Regulation & Order and SVU, or with a Hulu subscription like SVU. Followers simply cannot stream the present, and it might be good if OC will get a flip of NBC repeats earlier than the tip of the yr.
I do marvel if the present that normally airs at 10 p.m. ET is definitely too darkish to be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET, however I might additionally say that SVU‘s circumstances are extra disturbing than what the cops of Regulation & Order and Organized Crime normally take care of. It is value noting that One Chicago hasn’t aired any repeats of Chicago Med but this fall because it rotates between its three reveals; maybe OC might come again to primetime on Thursdays when Med returns to Wednesdays.
For now, we will simply wait and see if Thursdays will see some OC episodes because the wait continues for the SAG-AFTRA strike to finish.
