Think we're over Anthony Weiner-gate? Think again!

This week, not one but two hit TV dramas -- "Law & Order: SVU" on NBC and ABC's "Scandal" -- are doing Anthony Weiner-inspired, ripped-from-the-headlines stories. But who'll do it best? Let's take a look:

"Law & Order: SVU" episode: "October Surprise"

Win: "SVU" previews show the lewd photos pulled up on someone's laptop (above), with a nice nod to Carlos Danger himself -- their offending wannabe-mayor goes by Enrique Trouble!
Lose: Because it's "SVU," the sexted photos were allegedly sent to a 15-year-old, making it somehow even skeevier than Weiner's dirty deeds.
Added bonus: A clever "just the tip" joke!


"Scandal" episode: "Say Hello To My Little Friend"

Win: The episode title alone wins, but the photos up on the client board at OPA (above) are incredibly close to the real deal.
Lose: He's a blonde white guy? Boo.
Added bonus: He's not just a sexting maniac -- he might be a killer, too!


Tell us: Who do you think will tackle Weiner best?

"Law & Order: SVU" episode "October Surprise" airs Wed., Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC; "Scandal" episode "Say Hello To My Little Friend" airs Thurs., Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
