Wednesday night's new episode Law & Order: SVU was pulled off the schedule at the last minute, and fans were livid.
NBC decided to hold off on airing the episode, entitled "Unintended Consequences," to avoid competition from World Series game 7.
While the network was making the smartest business decision, the SVU fan base did not care. They wanted a new episode, and they took to Twitter to express their frustrations.

Hatred of the World Series
The World Series received a wave of hatred, as well.
Numerous fans were furious that a Major League Baseball took over TV for the night, as they'd much rather be watching Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) take on an investigation.
