CBS Bumps New "Three Rivers" Pilot, Second Episode to Air First
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- CBS is giving "Three Rivers" a new pilot - again.

Scheduling updates released by the network this morning indicate the show's second episode ("Place of Life") will now serve as its premiere on Sunday, October 4 at 9:00/8:00c. "Tick-Tock," originally set for October 4, will instead air the following week.

Here's how the Eye details the respective installments:

"Place of Life": After suffering a heart-attack, Dr. Andy Yablonski (Alex O'Loughlin) tells a young pregnant woman that in order to save her and her unborn child she must get a heart transplant. However, unexpected complications with the donor's family place the operation in jeopardy, on THREE RIVERS, premiering Sunday, Oct. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"Tick-Tock": Andy and the team try to save an 18-year-old college student in need of a double lung transplant but run into a road block that might not allow her to be eligible for a new set of lungs, on THREE RIVERS, Sunday, Oct. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Both episodes were filmed after the original pilot was scrapped to accommodate the addition of Alfre Woodard (replacing the Julia Ormond and Joaquim de Almeida characters) as well as relocating production to Los Angeles.
