In a first for the hit LAW + ORDER drama franchise, viewers can actually decide the fate of a character on spin-off CRIMINAL INTENT on Sunday night (17OCT04).

Fans of the show, which stars Vincent D'Onofrio, will be able to phone in to decide how villainous diamond smuggler NICOLE WALLACE, played by Olivia D'ABO, should be dealt with in the episode.

One ending will be shown to fans of the show on America's east coast, while west coast viewers will see an alternative finale hours later.

Viewers will then be invited to check out the ending they didn't see on the show's website and choose the one they like best.

The verdict will be announced a week later (24OCT04).
