TV GUIDE SEPTEMBER 19-25 2004
STARTS: 9/26, 10 PM, ON NBC
WHERE WE LEFT OFF: Crime-solving coroner Jordan (Jill Hennessy) was cleared as a suspect in a police chief's murder when the culprit was revealed to be her brother, who promptly killed himself.
TRAVEL NIGHTMARES: The Season opener brings new meaning to the words traffic jam as a blackout hits Boston, and Jordan gets trapped with a gang of bank robbers in a multicar pileup inside the city's new Ted Williams Tunnel. In another episode, she investigates a mass-casualty plane crash that may have been the work of terrorists.
WHO'S IN: Cop Woody Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell) is now a full-time regular and part-time love interest for Jordan. "We'll flirt with the idea of them getting together and see where it goes," says executive producer Tim Kring. Sounds like somebody's afraid of commitment.
WHO'S OUT: Ivan Sergei (Dr. Peter Winslow) has left Jordan for NBC's drama Hawaii, and Jennifer Finnigan (Devan Maguire) will split at mid-season to star in a Peacock sitcom.
CROSSING OVER: During November sweeps, James Caan and Josh Duhamel will travel from NBC's Las Vegas to Jordan to probe a high roller's mysterious midair death. One night later, Hennessy and O'Connell will return the favor by visiting Vegas, baby.
