This just in from USA Network. Law & Order: Criminal Intent, in which Vincent D’Onofrio solves crimes by overacting, has had its season premiere pushed back from November 7 to an unspecified time early next year:
USA Network will be moving the eighth season premiere of hit series LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT to 2009 when it will air in first quarter in an uninterrupted run of 16 episodes.[Snip]
LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, Dick Wolf’s third installment of the “Law & Order” brand, follows the Major Case Squad as it investigates high profile cases, usually homicides, such as those involving VIPs, local government officials and employees, the financial industry and the art world. Criminal Intent differs from other series in the “Law & Order” franchise because it gives a great amount of attention to the actions and motives of the criminals, rather than showing (almost exclusively) the police and prosecution’s side of the case.
Those of you dying to see Jeff Goldblum’s debut will just have to rent The Fly again between now and the end of the year.
