New episodes are coming up for Law & Order and Law & Order SVU. Don’t forget to watch at their new 10 PM ET times! It looks like we will – gasp! – actually see John Munch (Richard Belzer) in the SVU episode "Confidential". Sam Waterston fans, don’t forget Sam is scheduled to make a guest appearance on SVU in the same episode. (I can hardly contain myself.) Here are the details:
Law & Order “Brilliant Disguise” Air Date 3/08/2010 (10 PM ET/ 9C Monday NBC)
WHEN THE MURDER OF A YOUNG WOMAN IS TRACED BACK TO A MEDICAL SCHOOL RESEARCH PROJECT, IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT MORE THAN JUST LAB RATS ARE IN DANGER
After a young woman, Justine (guest star Laura Campbell), is found brutally murdered in a hotel and her body stashed away on a food service cart, evidence leads Detectives Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson) to a young medical school student. When a crafty lawyer, Ray Backlund (guest star Timothy Busfield), becomes involved, the detectives realize that it is going to take more than superficial evidence to put the murderer behind bars. This quickly becomes a case of mind over matter. 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).

Law & Order SVU “Confidential” Air Date 3/10/2010 (10 PM ET/ 9C Wednesday NBC)
A WOMAN'S MURDER IS LINKED TO A VAST PONZI SCHEME THAT LEADS DETECTIVES BENSON (MARISKA HARGITAY) AND STABLER (CHRISTOPHER MELONI) TO REOPEN THE INVESTIGATION OF A SIMILAR CRIME COMMITTED TWENTY YEARS EARLIER
When security cameras record footage of a woman being abducted, it isn't long before Captain Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) and the SVU squad find the woman dead in the basement. Detective John Munch (Richard Belzer) recalls a similar case from twenty years before, sending Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Eliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) to Sing Sing to speak to the culprit, who begs them to reopen his case and prove his innocence. As strange similarities between the two cases begin to arise, Benson and Stabler face fierce opposition from Ingrid Block (guest star Lena Olin), the pit bull attorney for the main suspect who will do whatever it takes to prove her client's innocence. Ultimately, it falls on DA Jack McCoy (guest star Sam Waterston) to decide whether or not the ruthless lengths to which Block went to defend her client constituted a crime itself. Also starring: Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Tamara Tunie (Dr. Melinda Warner), and B.D. Wong (Dr. George Huang).
