Raines will replace ER for two weeks in March

Jeff GoldblumRaines is the new quirky detective drama starring Jeff Goldblum. It's going to premiere in the Thursday at 10pm slot that ER currently occupies (side note: why was last night's ER a repeat when the rest of NBC's lineup was brand new?). The two episodes will air on March 15th and 30th. The show then goes into its regular time slot, Friday nights at 9pm.

Goldblum plays a detective that "sees" the victims of murder and they help him solve the crime. Now, contrary to earlier reports, these aren't ghosts a la Ghost Whisperer or Medium. These are actually hallucinations that the detective is seeing, but they help him piece together the puzzle of the crime. Yes, it sounds like the guy is legally insane, but he solves crimes.

The show will co-star Matt Craven, Linda Park, Madeleine Stowe, and Remi Boyer.

Networks do that -- a few weeks ago -- ER was new and the rest of the lineup was repeats.

"These are actually hallucinations that the detective is seeing, but they help him piece together the puzzle of the crime. "

In other words, they've just reworked "Millennium", but cleaner and shinier, for the people who don't like their crime to be so creepy.

Where Jerry Seinfeld is arrogant in a dark/funny way, Jeff Goldblum has to the the most annoyingly arrogant actor I have ever seen.

Bad luck with the show...
