NBC Shuffle, Including Another Air Date for ''Crossing Jordan''

By RD Heldenfels Published: November 29, 2006

Here's today's announcement from NBC. Note that ''Crossing Jordan'' is now slated for return on Jan. 21.

NBC will re-shape its mid-season program lineup following the planned departure of  "Sunday Night Football" in January with the debut of the new reality series "Grease: You're the One That I Want" (8-9 p.m. ET) on Sunday, January 7 (8-9 p.m. ET) and the season premiere of the Emmy Award-nominated "The Apprentice" (9-10 p.m. ET) - followed two weeks later by the return of the popular drama "Crossing Jordan" on Sunday, January 21 (10-11 p.m. ET). 

In addition, starting on Wednesday, January 3, NBC's Wednesday-night lineup will have a new look with the popular game show "Deal or No Deal" shifting to the 9-10 p.m. (ET) slot.  Likewise, on Wednesday, January 10, "Friday Night Lights" - the critically acclaimed freshman drama that recently received a full-season order -- will now be broadcast from 8-9 p.m. (ET) starting that night.  Both programs will precede "Medium," which continues at 10-11 p.m. (ET).

As a result, "Dateline NBC" will replace "Friday Night Lights" on Tuesdays (8-9 p.m. ET) beginning December 26 and will eventually add a second night on Sundays (7-8 p.m. ET) beginning February 11.

In addition, new mid-season dramas "Raines" and "The Black Donnellys" will also join the NBC schedule in Spring 2007 on a date and time period to be announced later. ...
