Jericho fans finally have a date to look forward to: February 12. Seven new episodes of the revived CBS show will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m., with a special winter edition of Big Brother serving as lead-in. Also returning to CBS is The New Adventures of Old Christine which, along with new comedy The Captain (starring Jeffrey Tambor), will fill in for The Big Bang Theory and Rules of Engagement on Monday nights.
Over on NBC, Law & Order Original Flavor returns with a two-hour season premiere on Wednesday, January 2. The long-running crime procedural was sidelined this fall, much to the chagrin of creator Dick Wolf, but will return with a few new castmembers. Joining the show are Jeremy Sisto as Detective Cyrus Lupo and Linus Roache as Chief Assistant District Attorney Michael Cutter. Cutter be will reporting to newly-promoted District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) who has replaced Arthur Branch (presidential candidate Fred Thompson).
One week later on January 9, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, which was bumped to the USA network (where it has been performing well) will also return to NBC, making Wednesday nights a L&O double-whammy.
