Ratings: “Law & Order SVU” Keeps It Up with Hot Numbers Again, Even Chris Meloni Show


The big ratings story last night again was “SVU.”

This show has been on TV so long the reruns are starting to have grandchildren.

And the numbers keep going up! Last night “SVU” was up around 5.4 million total viewers. Its mounting success in season 24 has turned its lead in, “Law & Order,” into a hit with 4.9 million viewers.

But now even “Organized Crime” at 10pm is showing signs of life at last, around 3.7 million. Dick Wolf rules NBC on Thursday night, that’s for sure.

Will we ever see Benson and Stabler get together? Let’s hope not. They’ve got to keep it at a hot question hovering in the air like the Chinese balloon!
