New Show Descriptions
"The E-Ring" (Wednesdays at 8 PM)
Premise: Jerry Bruckheimer (all of the "C.S.I." shows, "Cold Case," "Without a Trace"), who knows a few things about procedural dramas, takes viewers inside the Pentagon. From intelligence gathering to war room debate to special ops in the battlefield, the drama looks at the life-and-death
decisions that can relate to a single soldier or to the fate of the entire world.
"Inconceivable" (Fridays at 9 PM)
Premise: Everything's coming up sperm samples and frozen embryos at the Family Options Fertility Clinic, where the patients are having troubles conceiving and the doctors and nurse and administrators are having problems of their own.
"Surface" (Mondays at 7 PM)
Premise: A new form of sea life is popping up all over the world, from the South Antarctic Sea to San Diego to the Gulf of Mexico. The aquatic creatures look cute and innocent and kids love to play with them, but is something freakier afoot? An assortment of scientists and fishermen begin an investigation to
find out if things are really better under the sea.
"My Name Is Earl" (Tuesdays at 8 PM)
Premise: A bully and low-rent crook (Jason Lee) wins the lottery and decides to right the wrongs from his past. He may not be the brightest bulb, but he's oddly effective.
"The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" (Wednesdays at 7 PM)
Premise: Imagine "The Apprentice." Now imagine if instead of Donald Trump in the boardroom, you had Martha Stewart. See, wasn't that easy? A new group of possible apprentices perform tasks fitting ex-con Stewart's particular brand identity...media, home renovation, entertaining, design,
merchandising, technology, and style...and, with the help of two trusted colleagues, the Domestic Diva will make eliminations on a weekly basis.
"Three Wishes" (Fridays at 7 PM)
Premise: Amy Grant leads a team of experts into small towns and makes a variety of wishes come true. The Grammy winner helps perform miracles like reuniting families and saving jobs.
"Four Kings" (Comedy)
Premise: When Ben's (Josh Cooke) grandmother passes away, he inherits her New York apartment and decides to invite his three best friends from childhood to move in with him. These co-dependent heterosexual life-partners are on the cusp of adulthood, but they aren't ready to grow up just yet.
"Thick and Thin" (Comedy)
Premise: Mary (Jessica Capshaw) used to be overweight, but now she's sassy and slim. She sees herself differently, but her friends and overweight family still can't get beyond the way she used to be. As the embarrassing situations mount, she remembers that losing weight was less about the other people in her
life and more about becoming comfortable in her own skin.
