NBC has released new episode information for one new episode for Law & Order SVU and three – yes three – new episodes for Law & Order, which includes one special double header scheduled to air on November 6. (A double header – a recapper’s nightmare. Needless to say, don’t expect to see both recaps available that Saturday!) Information was already posted here on the November 4th episode of SVU titled “Anchor” – and as of right now, it is still scheduled to air that day according to NBC’s official schedule. Update 10/27 - NBC has officiallty moved "Anchor" to December 9, and "Users" to November 4, 2009.
Here are all the details on the newly released episodes for November.

When a young woman is found dead in her apartment, a few tell-tale signs quickly lead Detectives Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson) to believe that the killer was not after her wealth.

The video exposes two potential suspects leading the detectives to a drug cartel. Also starring: S. Epatha Merkerson (Lieutenant Anita Van Buren), Sam Waterston (District Attorney Jack McCoy), Alana De La Garza (Connie Rubirosa), and Linus Roache (Michael Cutter).
