Below is the synopsis of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," per IMDB.

This show introduces the Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD who investigate sexually related crimes.

"SVU" is going strong on NBC, currently in its 19th season. Entertainment Weekly's Nick Romano gave the first episode of season 19 a solid B. He writes:

Season 19 (can you believe it? Nineteen?!) of Law & Order: SVU kicks off with a curveball twist that’s impossible to ignore, so much so that it lingered in the back of my mind throughout Olivia’s personal troubles with Noah, Fin’s Cuban excursion, and the surprise character return at the end of the hour. Not only is Bart Ganzel out of jail, but he’s a lawyer!

Below is the synopsis of "Criminal Minds," per IMDB.

The cases of the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), an elite group of profilers who analyze the nation's most dangerous serial killers and individual heinous crimes in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again.

"Criminal Minds" hasn't been around as long as "SVU," but the show has been around since 2005 and remains a solid hit too. It's currently in its 13th season, so fans can't get enough of this crime drama. TV Fanatic's Dale McGarrigle confirmed the new season is off to a good start. He writes:

This was a somewhat smooth transition into a new season. Loose ends were tied up, and a new BAU lineup was put into place on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 1. Yes, the whole thing is pretty much by the numbers.
