For the first nine years of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT’s run, Elliot Stabler’s (Christopher Meloni) background had one glaring, obvious absence: His mother.

Viewers frequently saw Stabler with his wife and children in the early seasons, and there were brief mentions of his (long-dead) abusive cop father and his (still-unseen) siblings. But for over 200 episodes, nothing was said about what role, if any, his mom had in his life.

Then, on October 14, 2008, Bernie Stabler (Ellen Burstyn) made her debut in the LAW & ORDER world in the SVU episode “Swing.”

Couch Madness Final Round: 'Countdown'

In honor of the NCAA tournament season, Give Me My Remote is bringing back our TV-centric bracket, pitting similarly titled episodes against each other: Couch Madness! (Credit for the excellent name goes to fellow reporter Chris Hayner.)

The seeding is simple: rather than quality of the hour, we’re going by air date (with the oldest episode getting the #1 slot and the newest getting #8). With Peak TV, this will not include every single show that has used this title; rather, we picked a selection from what was available.

We’re now up to the final round, with voting running from Monday, March 27 through Friday, March 31.

Next up? “Countdown.” Keep reading for the bracket, episode descriptions (from IMDB), and the poll. (For the other episodes competing, check out all the brackets here!) Read more

Cady McClain is pulling double-duty on television this week: In addition to returning to the role of Jennifer on Peacock’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES, she’s also guest-starring on NBC’s LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT on Thursday, February 16.

In SVU’s “Dutch Tears,” “I play Patty, the wife of a corrections officer [Captain Pete Ryan], who’s played by Mark Borkowski,” McClain previews to Give Me My Remote. “Fin and Bruno come to our house. And we think that they’re seeking my husband’s help. Then we find out they’re actually interrogating him.”

This marks the second time McClain has appeared on the NBC drama (she played Alice McCain in 2004’s “Outcry”), but marked her first real experience working with Ice-T, whose character is at the forefront in the hour.

“I’m excited for him—it really centers on an arrest that his character, Fin, made 23 years ago,” McClain shares. “Fin ends up taking the lead [in] helping a man named Dutch [played by MAYANS M.C. star Richard Cabral] find the man who raped him in prison. So it’s an interesting story. I’m excited to see how it all comes out.” Read more
