Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

NBC | 10:00 pm

It may not be hard to guess the apparent inspiration for the story "The Newsroom," in which a news anchor — played by guest star Bonnie Somerville ("NYPD Blue") — says she is the victim of a sexual crime committed by her boss. Many co-workers hesitate to corroborate her claim as Benson and Barba (Mariska Hargitay, Raul Esparza) investigate. Peter Gallagher returns as Chief Dodds, and Christopher McDonald and Peyton List ("Frequency") also guest star.
