NBC Rethinks 'E-Ring,' 'Three Wishes' Swap; Cuts 'Daniel' Order
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Just days after announcing its plans to swap the time periods of its freshman series "E-Ring" and "Three Wishes" next week (read the story), NBC has scrapped the idea completely.

Scheduling updates released last night confirm "E-Ring" will now air as normal on Wednesday, October 26 ("Toy Soldiers"), as will "Three Wishes" on Friday, October 28 ("Military Homecoming"). No reason was given for why NBC rescinded the one-week stunt.

Meanwhile in other "E-Ring"-related news, the Peacock has asked for three additional scripts of the freshman drama. Said move will give the network a few extra weeks before having to decide the show's ultimate fate.

Also of note on the network: NBC has rolled back its commitment to the midseason drama "The Book of Daniel" from 13 to eight episodes (including the pilot). The news marks the Peacock's second midseason cut thus far, the other being "Thick and Thin's" 13-to-six episode trim (read the story).

As with "Thick and Thin," NBC cited its other already bloated midseason commitments - not to mention its various pilots under consideration for early 2006 - as the reason for the move.

Jack Kenny and Flody Suarez are behind "Daniel," a co-production of NBC Universal Television and Sony Pictures Television.
