SVU may be the longest-running live-action primetime series, but it’s also made Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) the longest-running character in the same category. She’s an icon and a role model for women everywhere. She’s taken her time on the series and made it an instrument for positive change in the world. Fans love the show even more because of Hargitay if we’re being honest.

“This is probably the only show that will never get me bored,” someone else admitted.
