      Hopefully this wont fail like Abrams other recent work: "Undercovers"

        Yup. I'm digging this.

          Does this spell the death of "Odd Jobs" if "Person of Interest" gets picked up?

            Emerson rocks! He's one of those lovable villains you sometimes secretly want to succeed (kind of like Giaus Baltar from BSG, and Batiatus from Spartacus). Not very surprised he was cast for the role, having worked with Abrams and co. before on LOST. Good news :)
