Law and Order is introducing a new District Attorney tonight but for those who watched Scandal the actor is going to be mighty familiar. Tony Goldwyn is making his debut in the role of Nicholas Baxter. He's gone from the President of the United States Fitzgerald Grant, who was hopelessly in love with Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope despite his marriage to First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young), to the DA's office.

Goldwyn teased what fans can expect from his character and, spoiler alert, he's not going to be Jack McCoy the sequel. Sam Waterston was part of what's kept Law and Order being a go-to procedural for TV lovers for over two decades. But Goldwyn is set to write his own chapter and shakes things up as DA Baxter plays by a different rule book. The actor told TVLine the following:

"Whereas McCoy was very much, ‘The law is everything and the law tells us exactly what the decision needs to be,’ Nicholas Baxter is a guy who really takes in broader political implications of every decision. Baxter has a different vibe than McCoy, and I think it puts everyone on edge."

Part of that tension is going to revolve around Baxter putting together his own team. He has a set way of doing things, and Goldwyn described his character as being "more modern" and "more politically sensitive." Baxter is also going to roll up to the murder scene in this week's case which going to throw Riley and Shaw because that's not what someone in his position is prone to do.

Get a glimpse of what you can expect from Goldwyn's performance this week's episode of Law and Order before you sit down to watch.

What time is Law and Order tonight?

Law and Order season 23, episode 7, "Balance of Power," premieres Thursday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Next day streaming is available on Peacock. The new episode will release on the platform Friday, March 15 at 6 a.m. ET. For those unable to watch via TV, whether you're a cord cutter or not, there are two options.

NBC's website and app

It happens, sometimes you aren't able to tune into a show at home, tucked up comfy on your couch or in your bedroom. However, that's where the Internet becomes your best friend because, like the rest of the Big 4, it is possible to watch NBC live anywhere you are that has Internet access as long as you also have a TV provider log-in.

What makes this even better is that they include streaming TV providers in their roster of providers that they provide access to so if you have Hulu + Live TV, Youtube TV, Sling TV, or DirecTV Stream, you can log-in just like Verizon and Xfinity subscribers. Click here to see if your provider is listed.

A TV provider log-in will also give you unlimited access to the website's content. This means anything that has a lock pad icon next to it when you aren't logged in will be available to view once you do.

Streaming TV provider

For those who are home but don't have cable, or the antenna necessary to pick up Network TV channels, you're going to need a Streaming TV provider in order to watch "Balance of Power" live. As noted above, providers like Hulu + Live TV along with Fubo TV will give you access to NBC. But you're going to want to verify that your provider does carry the channel. Some regions might not.
