Question: Do you know if it's true that E-Ring will be back with new episodes in August? That's what it says on NBC.com. Answer: That was a boo-boo. An NBC rep says there are "no scheduled airdates for E-Ring this summer." Fun sidebar: Just hours after I called the Peacock about the typo, the entire E-Ring page vanished from NBC.com. Now all that remains is the flop sweat on Benjamin Bratt's brow.

Stephanie March, who left NBC's Law & Order: SVU in October 2003, when ADA Alexandra Cabot was sent into the Witness Protection Program with a new identity, has joined L&O creator Dick Wolf's latest legal drama, Conviction. Meanwhile, Dawson's Creek alum Kerr Smith has been bumped up to series-regular status on NBC's E-Ring, where he has been guesting as Special Ops team member Bobby Wilkerson.
When does an octagon trump a pentagon? When the octagon is the mysterious Dharma logo from ABC's Lost and the Pentagon is the setting for early TV-season time-slot rival E-Ring. Such was the unfortunate (if unsurprising) fate that befell NBC's new Wednesday-night military drama, which bowed strong but dropped 1.7 million samplers in its second week. Luckily, NBC quickly reappointed E-Ring to the 8 pm/ET hour, where it has reclaimed a full million of those, um, "lost" viewers — especially good news for film-turned-series star Dennis Hopper, who plays Colonel McNulty to Benjamin Bratt's U.S. army major. "We premiered against Lost, which obviously won [the Best Drama Emmy] last year, so we had a struggle," Hopper recounts for TVGuide.com. "We've [since] dropped to
E-Ring star Benjamin Bratt and his wife, Talisa Soto Bratt, welcomed their second child — son Mateo Bravery Bratt — into the world on Monday. The couple also have a daughter, Sophia Rosalinda Bratt, born in 2002. Wow, that's a lot of Bratts.
With an average of 9.6 million viewers, Wednesday's double-episode season premiere of ABC's George Lopez won the 8 o'clock hour, handily beating new time-slot rival E-Ring (with 8.3 million) and the So You Think You Can Dance finale (8 million), while Season 3 of One Tree Hill bowed with 3.8 mil. At 9, Lost and its 22 million fans beat the living Alvar Hanso out of the competish, including Criminal Minds (11.7 million) and the relocated Apprentice: Martha Stewart, which was up a hair with 6.5 mil. (If you're Jennifer Esposito's mom, know that WB's Related debuted with 3.2 mil, barely edging out Veronica Mars.) The 10-to-11 pm ratings race was the night's tightest, with CSI: NY digging up 14.2 million, Law & Order collaring 12.2 million and Invasion beaming up 12 mil.
NBC is already shuffling around its Wednesday-night lineup, swapping time slots for newcomers E-Ring, which will now air at 8 pm/ET, and The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, which is moving to 9 opposite ABC's Lost. (Who wishes they were a fly on the wall when M. Diddy got that memo? I can promise you there was no handwritten thank-you note.)
Benjamin Bratt returns to series television as JT Tisnewski, an Army major just back from active duty in Afghanistan. I predict the show will feature a cocky, devil-may-care but extremely capable officer whose unorthodox ways save the day and earn him grudging respect. I predict he'll butt heads with a lower-ranked officer who will nevertheless come through for said cocky officer despite the risks to her position. I predict that in the end it will all work out. What I'm trying to say is that E-Ring is a wee bit... predictable. The pilot adequately establishes people and personalities who will no doubt clash on a weekly basis as they work together to solve a weekly crisis. While all this setup is happening, a Chinese national spying for the U.S. needs immediate extraction from Shanghai. JT is cocky enough to remind the hesitant Joint Chiefs that in America we do not leave anyone behind. Result? They dispatch a SEAL team to rescue
With the new fall series E-Ring (airing Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET, beginning Sept. 21), NBC promises a behind-the-scenes look at the global crises and critical decision-making that keep Pentagon intelligence officers on their toes. The drama boasts silver-screen luster not only in Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality, The Great Raid), as U.S Army Major "J.T." Tisnewski, but also in two-time Academy Award nominee Dennis Hopper (of Easy Rider and Blue Velvet fame), who plays Colonel McNulty. Although largely associated with his many counterculture film characters, Hopper says that, aside from having to "stand a little straighter and get a haircut," stepping into the Colonel's spit-shined shoes was not as difficult as some might think. Stepping away from filmdom
Looks like the man behind all three CSIs, Without a Trace, Cold Case and The Amazing Race wants an even bigger piece of the prime-time pie. Movie producer turned TV-hitmaker Jerry Bruckheimer has five pilots vying for space on the fall schedule.A military drama called The E-Ring shines as the Bruckheimer series most likely to get picked up. Starring Law &amp; Order alum Benjamin Bratt and Dennis Hopper, the NBC pilot goes inside the Pentagon the way The West Wing went behind the scenes of the White House. "It's a formula that can be updated for these tenser times of insecurity over homeland security," says John Rash of ad agency Campbell Mithun, who's had a sneak peek at The E-Ring. CBS is considering American Crime, a drama about a prosecutor who's also a new mom (Jennifer Finnigan could star if NBC cancels her sitcom, Committed). Meanwhile,
