This week’s TV Guide (US version) has a major coverage of all TV Shows returning after the long hiatus due to the WGA strike. Ian Biederman (pictured), creator of Shark, spoke to TV Guide about the next four episodes which, as you probably know, are not going to feature Jeri. Or will they?
Aside from spilling some secrets about the last four episodes of the season, which includes mention of Paula Marshall –the temporary replacement for Jeri while she’s at home tending to baby Gisele–, they also wrote briefly about Miss Ryan. The excerpt:
Where’s Jeri? Jeri Ryan, who plays Stark’s sexy sidekick Jessica Devlin, is on maternity leave. “I would like to have her back as soon as possible, for as much as possible,” says Biederman. Who wouldn’t?
Shark is apparently on the bubble for renewal next season. While overall viewer numbers are good, CBS is supposedly not happy with the demo ratings, which puts the show at risk. (Despite CBS head Les Moonves’ declaration that they like their older audience, the network is not happy that most of Shark’s viewers are outside of the targeted 18-34 demographics).
Shark returns on Tuesday, April 29 at 9 PM on CBS (while the season finale will air on May 20 at 10 PM). It’s a new day and time for the show, going against the heavy competition of Dancing With The Stars as well as the last half hour of American Idol. Good luck! Fingers crossed for renewal so we get to see Jeri on a weekly basis again next fall.
Congratulations to Jeri and her family from her fans! 😀
Actress Jeri Ryan and her husband, chef Christophe Eme, are the parents of a baby girl, the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE.
Gisele Eme was born Sunday in Los Angeles, weighing 7 lbs., 13 oz.
“Both parents are thrilled,” Ryan’s rep David Lust tells PEOPLE. “Jeri is resting comfortably and Christophe is playing the part of proud new papa quite well.”
Ryan, 40, who currently stars on the CBS drama Shark, wed French chef Eme in the Loire Valley last June. The two own hip L.A. restaurant Ortolan.
This is the couple’s first child together. Ryan also has a 13-year-old son, Alex, from a previous relationship.

“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.”
