    Third Watch is going on hiatus after the episode airing on March 5. Crossing Jordan will take over the 10 p.m. slot until the 9th of April when Third Watch comes back for the five final episodes of the season.

    Just in time for the sweeps in May.

    I have been up and down when it comes to Crossing Jordan, but I think NBC is doing a big mistake by airing Crossing Jordan twice a week. It didn't work the best for Kingpin. I do want to check out the D.A. which starts march 19 on ABC (and luckily Touching Evil comes on an hour before the D.A. in my area- Touching Evil- 8 pm MT, D.A.- 9 pm MT).

    However I won't be missing Third Watch for these few weeks because this season has been incredibly weak.

    Well, Kingpin was pretty strongly serialized, wasn't it? Most Crossing Jordan episodes are pretty self-contained. I gather NBC's point here is not to waste any of Crossing Jordan's new episodes on June.

    Doesn't much matter to me; Monk is done for the season after tonight, CBS apparently has forgotten they have episodes of The Handler in the can and maybe this'll finally get me to stop recording Code Name: Eternity.

    I am wondering when CBS will air the final two episodes of THE HANDLER. I like that show.

    I know that a lot of the fans on the fan sites for Third Watch are going through a terrible withdrawal from the show.
