Law & Order: It may not be as strong as NBC was likely hoping when they revived it, but it's doing the trick. The revival of the venerable legal drama has improved its time slot for NBC, rating well above The Blacklist's fall run and a bit above the Netflix-bound Manifest's spring 2021 airings. Its second week drop was ugly, preliminarily shedding three tenths, but it's held steady since then, holding in the 0.5 range ever since. Though last week was its weakest datapoint so far (0.46), it's still doing respectable business for the Peacock network. It seems quite improbable that NBC would cancel a high-profile revival that, by all accounts, is a success for them. Law & Order is a CERTAIN RENEWAL.
