No stills or previews out there, so just a reminder that Eric guest stars on Made in Jersey tonight in the episode that airs at 8 pm and he directed the one that airs at 9 pm.
The Farm – 8 pm, CBS
A young woman leaves rehab to join a cult, and Martina represents her concerned parents. Meanwhile, Tommy spreads an ugly rumor about how Martina gained employment at her prestigious law firm.

Both episodes will air on Saturday, Dec. 29. That’s next week.
“The Farm,” with Eric guest starring, will air at 8 pm, and “Ridgewell,” which he directed, will be on at 9 pm.
The show has been cancelled and pulled off the air, so it might be a while before we see those two episodes. From TV by the Numbers:
With the return of Undercover Boss on Nov. 2, CSI: NY will move to the 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT time period beginning this Friday, Oct. 12. Made In Jersey has been pulled from the schedule.
No word yet on when & where CBS will show the remaining eps.
Actor-turned-director Eric Stoltz will turn to acting again in November to guest star on CBS’ new legal drama Made in Jersey.
EW has learned exclusively that Stoltz will play Marcus Wheaton, the mysterious and controlling leader of Wheaton Farms in upstate New York. Martina (Janet Montgomery) represents the wealthy parents of a teen girl who ran away to live within this farm aka cult.
I nosed through the audition scenes for the next few episodes and, while there’s no mention of a character named Marcus Wheaton, episode 1.07 sounds like it might be the one (careful, big spoilers):
The unconfirmed air date is Friday, November 9, at 9/8c on CBS.
Episode 1.05, “Ridgewell,” which Eric directed, airs on October 26.
