Battlestar Galactica did it. Desperate Housewives did it. And now yet another popular show is considering utilizing the increasingly-familiar plot device known as the time warp and fast-forwarding all of its stories! Which one? I’d love to tell you, but this is a blind item. So all you’ll get out of me are the following clues:

1. If it happens, the time shift will occur between this season’s finale and next season’s premiere.

2. If it happens, it’ll be because, I’m told, the network wanted to shake up the show and its characters, opening doors to new stories and closing doors on old ones.

3. If it happens… I’ll (hopefully) be telling you about it in the next few weeks.

Sorry, that’s all you get. Well, that, and the chance to speculate below. What still-popular program needs the kinda shot in the arm that only being shot forward in time could provide? Hmm
