Law & Order Prepares Episode That Will Take Dual Potshots at Letterman and The View

From the death of Princess Diana to the curious case of the Hipster Grifter, Law & Order has shot an untold number of episodes over the years that were inspired by real-life events. Hot on the heels of these achievements in opportunism comes the Wrap's report that the producers of NBC's creaky yet still venerable franchise is soon going to be shooting an episode of the show that mashes up David Letterman's sex scandal with some potshots at The View. According to Josef Adalian, it appears they have changed the Letterman role from a sixtysomething white male to a bisexual (or possibly even lesbian!) woman, one who presides over a talk-show panel of four women. While this news renders Vulture's fantasy-casting session worthless, we do have one suggestion for the show's producers that will turn the episode into must-see TV: Figure out some way to squeeze NBC's "Artist In Residence" Bon Jovi into the episode and watch the ratings soar!
