Jason Ritter, 'The Event'

So yeah, you've seen Jason Ritter on TV before, in both lead ("The Class") and supporting roles ("Joan of Arcadia"), and you know his name -- he's the son of John Ritter. But that familiar quality works really well on "The Event." The NBC thriller's first episode introduces a whole lot of information, and viewers will need someone to lead them through the maze. As a guy who doesn't quite comprehend what he's caught up in, Ritter is perfectly suited to be our guide. -- Rick Porter, Zap2itNBC
