NBC seals Crossing Jordan's fate

jill henessy; crossing jordanThings are not looking good for the NBC series, Crossing Jordan. The crime drama is being moved to Wednesday nights, up against American Idol and Criminal Minds.

Evidently, NBC sees more promise in Howie Mandel and Deal or No Deal. That game show is currently in the Wednesday 9 pm timeslot and it's getting pummeled in the ratings. The network is moving Howie and the suitcase models to a friendly time slot on Sundays at 9 pm. That means The Apprentice is getting pushed back an hour to 10 pm on Sundays and Crossing Jordan gets thrown into the line of fire. It's amazing that Crossing Jordan is still on the air, considering all the time-shifting and lack of publicity it gets from NBC.

All these changes begin March 4.

People get real, this is a very entertaining show. It's a show for entertainment, all shows don't have to be correct in every detail to be enjoyed. The actors are great and seem to get along quite well together. I always find something amusing in it. One of favorites!!!!

HEY!!!! I love this show! It is one of my favorite shows. Just because NBC might not think it's good doesn't mean that it isn't. The actors and actresses are very good, and it's much better than some of the other shows that are on TV.

This show has found an audience despite its many moves and late debutes. Wouldn't worry about Boston not being accurtately portrayed - think David Kelley took care of that.

THAT'S WHAT VCR AND TAPES ARE FOR? So you can watch your favorite programs when trash is on.

I think they should move it to follow Las Vegas (or whatever the name of that show is...) but alas... I won;t be watching it anymore.... Criminal Minds will rule my tv.

It is painfully obvious that Kevin Reilly and Jeff Zucker have absolutely no concept on how to program a network. In fact that was clear last May when the "brain trust" at NBC thoroughly ransacked their announced schedule for the sole purpose of moving "Studio 60" away from "CSI" and "Gray's Anatomy". "Crossing Jordan" is just another example of this. The show was originally scheduled to run in the first hour of Friday before "Las Vegas". That would have worked quite well. But then the network rolled out "1 vs. 100" (and hey, I like the show - it's certainly better than "Deal or No Deal") and Zucker made his "no scripted shows in the first hour of prime time" edict, and suddenly "Crossing Jordan" is back on Sunday nights starting in January after football season ended. And against shows that had been doing well against football (rather than the former Sunday fare) it fails and gets moved to Wednesday to protect "Deal or No Deal". Makes you weep really.

This show has been about to go off the air for years now; yet it's always survived. We'll see.

The show wasn't too bad when it debuted, but over time, the plots became increasingly ridiculous. Completely unbelievable. Living in Boston, I was also very critical about the fictitious local stuff. Did any of the writers ever live here? Very doubtful. Good riddance to this trash!
