While this season's Law & Order ratings were borderline, the pressure on NBC to make history was strong, so this should surprise no one:
NBC is believed to have finally come to terms on a landmark 20th season for Dick Wolf staple Law & Order.
As had been rumored for months, Peacock will pick the mothership - as Wolf affectionately calls the original L&O -- up for 16 episodes, and likely air it in midseason, much as it did this season.
NBC declined to comment.
