    It’s a Harry’s Law press release from the archives!

    At least they didn’t call Crossing Lines “Crossing Jordan” the way they called Chicago Fire “Chicago Hope” with a couple of their press releases.

    I guess no one at NBC pays attention to this site, or else they would know that total viewers means nothing.

    I’ve recorded but haven’t seen CL yet. Can NBC be that desperate for a show getting 0.7 & crowing about it ? The bar is indeed low but there tripping over that bar with this press release. Safe to say it won’t last beyond the summer.
