Law & Order: Criminal Intent Pushed Back to Summer 2009

New episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent won't air until summer 2009, according to a USA Network spokesperson, the second such delay in four months. The eighth season was initially scheduled to debut in November 2008, just three months after Season 7 aired. Then, in October, the netlet announced the season would shift to early 2009, presumably January, so they could air all 16 episodes in a row - the same reason they cite for this latest push-back.

Season 8 is notable for its casting changes. Chris Noth (Sex and the City), who played Det. Mike Logan, left the show after three seasons, and has been replaced by the Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actor Jeff Goldblum, who plays Det. Zach Nichols. Preview scenes sent to TV critics in the fall showed that Goldblum's performance departed from the stammering intellectual roles for which he is generally known (The Fly, Independence Day, The Big Chill).

The show's spokesperson said that Goldblum's arrival, however, was not responsible for the delays.

Here's the sad part...I don't care.
I was so excited in the beginning when the show was supposed to air. I sat down, had my bag of chips, and was ready to start watching. Then it turned out to be an Episode of House.
So then I went here and saw that it said Early '09. But then when the months went by, I really started to care less and less about when it comes back.
So I think that their intended "Let's wait to get more people" (which is the reason they gave the first time) is actually causing the show to LOSE people
I really don't know what's going on in the mind's of people with power.

I agreed with jumbolaya it's Ridiculous that we real fans have to wait so long to see our favorite show. They really need to get this show on the road...
