New Law & Order Follows NCIS to Los Angeles

... The original Law & Order is now officially dead, but a new offspring is taking its place. NBC has announced that it is picking up LOLA (Law & Order: Los Angeles) because why the hell not? As long as there are cities with both law and order, NBC will be able to fill out its schedule. Let's hope they meet up with the NCIS crew in SoCal and have a fight to the death! [NBC]

... You want the latest on Heroes? Here it is: Things aren't looking good. The newest rumor has NBC either canceling the series altogether, or giving it a six-episode wrap-up run, or letting it bow out with a two-night, four-hour farewell. Either way, we should know about its fate in the next few days. Can we just get this over with and cancel it already? [Deadline Hollywood]

... TNT continues its love affair with Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Saved by the Bell). The network has picked up Franklin and Bash, a dramedy about two street-smart lawyers (Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer) who start up their own firm. [TNT via press release]

... The Wanda Sykes Show has been canceled. Noooooooooooooo! I mean, whateverrrrrrrrrrrrr! [Deadline Hollywood]

... The remake of The Rockford Files is apparently dead at NBC. The show got a lot of criticism for trying to replace legend James Garner with Dermot Mulroney, but given that half the people who watched the original are now dead, I didn't think it was that big of a problem. The pilot was allegedly re-shot and re-cut so many times that it was an unrecognizable mess of what it used to be. Kind of like Heidi Montag. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Do you like frats? Do you love the '80s? You'll probably be stoked about TBS' newest pickup Glory Daze, about a group of fraternity pledges in 1980s Wisconsin. It's like That '70s Show, but ten years later! And look: It's got Daze in the title instead of Days because really, weren't we all in a daze back then? Reaganomics, GoBots, Flock of Seagulls, cocaine parties on Wall Street... ahhhh, those were the days. I mean, daze! (This show sounds dumb. And before you think I'm jumping the gun, know that it comes from the guys who brought us the intellectually challenging Wild Hogs and You, Me and Dupree.) [Deadline Hollywood]

... You know what sounds better than Glory Daze? Super Eruption! SyFy's latest made-for-peanuts telemovie is all about a gigantic volcano that erupts in Yellowstone Park. Couldn't they have set it in some place less valuable? Like Orange County? [THR]
