Exclusive: Paula Marshall Takes Shark Bait

James Woods by Robert Voets/CBS, Paula Marshall by Jean-Paul Aussenard/

Looks like Shark caught a live one! Sources confirm to me exclusively that the CBS legal drama has tapped Paula Marshall to temporarily replace the show's maternity-bound leading lady, Jeri Ryan. Marshall is expected to appear in at least three of this season's final four episodes. Marshall's character, a state deputy attorney general, first meets Shark (James Woods) at his disbarment arraignment, where she.... I better stop there. Too spoilery. Let's just say the two forge a mutually beneficial partnership. read more

Do you have any news on how ...

Question: Do you have any news on how Jeri Ryan's pregnancy is going to affect Shark? Is there any chance of her returning for this season's final four episodes?

Answer: She's due in March, so, um, no. But Shark execs are turning this crisis into an opportunity and bringing in a big-name actress to replace Ryan during her absence. One option that was being bandied about pre-strike was bringing back previous guest star Sherry Stringfield to fill the void. Not sure if that's still in the cards.

Jeri Ryan Trades Power Suits for Maternity Wear

Jeri Ryan and Christophe Émé

"It looks like I swallowed a basketball!" jokes Jeri Ryan of the walloping belly that, come March, will produce a baby girl for her and new husband Christophe Émé, the Michelin-starred French chef (and, with Ryan, co-owner of the popular West Hollywood eatery Ortolan). "I mean, I'm carrying so forward that if there hadn't been a clear shot in the ultrasound, I would have sworn it was a boy." Yep, forget about those tight, tiny-waisted business suits she sports as Jessica Devlin, James Woods' tough-talking law partner on Shark. And absolutely ditto that for the famously skin-hugging catsuits she squeezed her bodacious 5-foot-8-inch frame into during four years as Seven of Nine, Star Trek: Voyager's part-human, part-Borg. Today Jeri Ryan is hauling around a whole new set of curves. Before the writers' strike halted pr read more

I was interested in the item ...

Question: I was interested in the item in last week's Ask Matt column about the new CBS Sunday night schedule accommodating East Coast viewing after NFL coverage with 60 Minutes starting at 7:30 pm/ET, going for 90 minutes, and so on. Being a big fan of Shark (and last year Without a Trace), I love it! But then you said CBS would probably revert to its old approach once Viva Laughlin kicks in. I also watch Brothers & Sisters and record Shark, but with the NFL, we East Coasters never know when it will start. I've tried resetting the "stop" time to well past 11 pm, but unless you catch exactly when 60 Minutes starts, it's hard to know when the rest of the shows will follow. I have what seems to be a simple solution. Let's suppose the NFL runs on to, say, 7:13 pm, and that's when 60 Minutes starts. Why not put a little "pop-up" at the bottom of the screen (near the CBS Eye?) that says, "Viva Laughlin (or whatever is next) will start at 8:13" Then, if I miss the actual time, I can easily ... read more

In previous years, whenever ...

Question: In previous years, whenever CBS aired a late-afternoon football game, it pushed the Sunday night lineup back, sometimes as much as a full hour, so they could air every show starting with 60 Minutes. But I noticed that on Sept. 30, when there was a late-afternoon football game scheduled, 60 Minutes was scheduled to start at 7:30 pm/ET and run until Cold Case started at 9. My question is, was this something specially scheduled because 60 Minutes did have high-profile stories (a Supreme Court justice and a rising football player), or will 60 Minutes always air in this pattern when CBS has late-afternoon games? Answer: According to the TV Guide listings (a very useful resource on this website and in our magazine pages — I'm just saying), this expanded and late-starting version of 60 Minutes is scheduled for the next two Sundays. I'm a big fan of this idea, as it keeps the rest of CBS' prime-time lineup on track and without the overruns that aggravate so many loyal viewers of Cold read more

Anything new on the Shark ...

Question: Anything new on the Shark front?

Answer: I can now confirm what I first hinted at last month: Sherry Stringfield will be reprising her role as Nora March in the Nov. 11 episode.
