Here are seven words I never thought I'd type: Crossing Jordan may be back next season.

Multiple sources connected to the drama tell me that prospects for a seventh season are looking up. That's quite a turnaround from what I heard just a few weeks ago, which was that Jordan was showing signs of rigor mortis.

"Everyone was expecting to get shut down," acknowledges a Jordan insider. "But just last week, NBC started to give indications that the show might return. There's even been some money allocated for next season."

Reaction to this shocking development? Is another season of Crossing Jordan cause for celebration? And, more importantly, what might this mean for NBC's other bubble shows - most notably Friday Night Lights? Post your comments/theories below!
