On Wednesday night's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Detective John Munch, played by Richard Belzer, retired. And in a fitting send-off the fictional cops of New York's 16th precinct threw him a roast. Belzer's time playing the perpetually sunglasses-wearing detective is unique in broadcast television, in that he's played the same character on 10 TV shows across five channels and 20 years. While Belzer's run ties with Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Frasier Crane and James Arness as Marshal Matt Dillon on "Gunsmoke" for longest portrayal of a single character on TV, the breadth of Belzer's apparances sets him in a league of his own. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times Belzer was known primarily as a stand-up comedian when he was cast as a detective in the highly acclaimed NBC police drama "Homicide: Life on the Street.

NBC's "Chicago Fire" did not exactly generate a lot of heat when it launched last fall. The drama about the truck and rescue squads of a fictional Chicago firehouse lacked the moody darkness, charismatic antiheroes and explosive violence of critical darlings such as "Breaking Bad," "Homeland," "Boardwalk Empire," "Dexter" and "Sons of Anarchy. " The show's retro vibe and focus on heroism were decidedly more "old school" than "new cool. " The template also appeared a bit too close to those of "Rescue Me," "Third Watch" and other recent series centered on emergency workers.
