The Hollywood Reporter is also claiming there will be three extra E.R. episodes, but I've yet to see what will happen to Kings, and all other programming which will have to be moved to make room for E.R. Those in ski areas this time of year understand avalanches.
Until I get some kind of info, I'm leaving things as is for E.R. The finale estimate for E.R. or the estimates for Kings won't change for audience even if it airs four weeks later.
Need help selling Howie Does It beyond my estimates? Here's an interview with the King of OCD himself: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/rant.aspx?id=20090108_howiedoit
