NBC pulls 'L&O: LA'

Those who'd wondered what NBC would be doing about those "Law & Order: LA" episodes that had already been filmed with the cast members that executive producer Dick Wolf just jettisoned -- including Skeet Ulrich -- may have an answer: The show, which hasn't aired an original episode since Dec. 1, is off the schedule until "a day to be determined," according to the network.

That's good news for fans of "Parenthood," now scheduled to remain at 10 p.m. Tuesdays, rather than be shoved aside for "LOLA," which was set to move into that timeslot Feb. 8.

In other changes that may or may not be related to NBC's imminent takeover by Kabletown, er, Comcast, the network said that Jerry Seinfeld's "The Marriage Ref" would not, after all, be returning on March 6 and that another unscripted series, "America's Next Great Restaurant," will debut then instead.
