Law & Order, SVU New Episodes, Week Of October 11, 2009 + 1 More

First and foremost – don’t forget to watch tonight’s episode of Law & Order, “Great Satan” which airs at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.

The upcoming episode of Law & Order SVU “Hammered” will feature guest star Scott Foley. Law & Order “Reality Bites” stars a lot of comics but isn’t a comedy. It features a fictional reality show called “Larry Plus Ten,” loosely based on Jon and Kate Gosselin's reality show, plus a touch of the Octomom, Nadya Suleman.

Episode information has been released for the new October 23 episode of Law & Order, titled “Dignity,” and the details are also listed below.

Here are the new episodes for the week of October 11:

Interesting...didn't the mother ship do an epesode similar to Hammered a few years back? Though in that epesode it was a detective waking up to find a girl dead in his place.

Yes, the episode was called "Hindsight" and was about Detective Nick Falco (Michael Imperioli) waking up finding a girl dead in his apartment.

Just from watching the opening scenes, it seems as if "Reality Bites" is more based on the murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings, the couple in Florida who adopted special needs kids. Just pointing it out.
