I am so sick and tired of people complaining that SVU has gone downhill since Chris Meloni left. Yes he was actor, yes Stabler was a great character, yes we miss him on the show but it doesn't mean the show sucks, the show is still good, people can't seem to handle change. The original Law and Order had cast changes all the time and i never remember people complaining about it as much as they are about SVU. Get over it!
By the way if the show sucks so much how come NBC renewed it for a 14th season.
