Tim Kring, creator of 'Crossing Jordan' gave a shout-out to himself on the show tonight.

Nigel was angry at Woody because the cop had not yet visited Jordan in the hospital. (She had undergone brain surgery to remove a tumor.)

So Nigel figured that Woody had something much more important to do instead - like stay home and watch a new TV show about superheroes.

For us at home, this was a reference to Kring's other show, the mega-hit 'Heroes'.

But luckily for televisiologists everywhere, there's no Zonk involved. No mention was made that specifically nailed the reference to 'Heroes' - no title, no character names, nada.

For all we know, it's a re-imagining (a la 'Battlestar Galactica') of 'Jetman' (from 'He & She' back in the late 60s)!

Kring could fashion an actual crossover between his two shows, without 'Crossing Jordan' losing whatever semblance of realism it has. No super-powered characters need show up - it could just be Dr. Mohinder Suresh, as a cousin of Bug's.....
