Alright, perhaps the headline on this post is a wee bit dramatic, but yo! Have you seen that Detective Stabler is leaving Law & Order: Special Victims Unit?

According to the New York Times, NBC “quietly announced” that Mr. Meloni will be leaving the show at the end of this season because his team and the network couldn’t come to an agreement regarding his contract. I’m not sure how it’s even possible that they could axe the show’s greatest (and sexiest) character over what’s probably toilet paper money for the NBC in the grand scheme of things.

Maybe it wasn’t the money. Maybe it was the idea that he’d potentially have to look Jennifer Love Hewitt in the face every day and not laugh.

I’m going to call it now though: Stabler’s final episode will be him getting the book thrown at him for beating up yet another pedophile. Actually, maybe he’ll go all the way and kill ‘em. The show sure could use that kinda drama going in to what will probably be its last season.

    As a huge fan of Wet Hot American Summer, I always thought Chris Meloni’s Jesus tattoo was, like, a gag for the movie. WHOOPS.

      I actually lived in the town in which Wet Hot was filmed for a stint a few years back. Cool little place.
