NCIS and NCIS: Hawaii are joining forces in March for one night
January 3rd, 2022 under CBS, Wilmer Valderrama. [ Comments: none ]

NCIS Special Agent Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) and NCIS Special Agent Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) are taking a trip to the Aloha state, and we will get to see what happens when they meet up with NCIS: Hawaii on March 28th.

I am sure it was hard for CBS to get the two actors to leave a very cold Los Angeles for a warm, beautiful in Hawaii. And I bet their co-stars are extremely jealous, as they should be.


What is the cast of Ghosts’ favorite episodes?
December 23rd, 2021 under CBS, Ghosts. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight starting at 8:30p, CBS is going to air a 5-episode marathon of Ghosts, the #1 new comedy on broadcast TV, and rightfully so. The network let the viewers decide which shows they should air for Ghostmas. The audience has spoken, and we chose Pete’s Wife, Viking Funeral, D&D, Alberta’s Fan and Possession.

We did good with our choices, but does the cast agree with us? I recently attended the CBS Winter TCA Press Day, and I asked the cast what their favorite episodes are. What did they tell me?

Asher Grodman, who plays Trevor, the pantless businessman from the ’80s, said, “I’ll say this. But this is a sentimental thing. For me, the pilot is just very special, because it’s what brought us all together, and it was this thing that was kind of floating in the air that we just never were sure was going to come to fruition.” He added. “That’s a nice way for me to side—step your question. But it’s the pilot, because it was just like the —— it was the end of the tunnel.” Sadly, the pilot episode is not airing tonight. However, you can and should watch it on Paramount+ or CBS OnDemand.

While we won’t see that tonight, it is starting off with Pete’s Wife. Three cast members weighed in on that one. Utkarsh Ambudkar, who is Jay a living so he can’t see the Ghosts, said, “I like Pete. I like Pete’s episode.”

Viking Thorfinn, played by Devan Chandler Long, added, “Pete’s was the most emotional. I cried. That was touching. Román Zaragoza, the native American ghost Sasappis, chimed in with, “And Devan, we got to do some fun stuff in that one. That was a beautiful one.” Long concluded with, “Yeah, it was one.”

So what episode does Richie Moriarty, who plays Pete, prefer? He said, “I really liked D&D, too. I loved Brandon [Scott Jones] and Nigel’s storyline. I love John Hartman, who plays Nigel. I think he’s so good,” Then he shared another part of the game-changing episode. “And I love the opening up this opportunity to communicate more with Jay. Having us playing with Jay in that episode was a super fun kind of new window into a great side of things in this show. So that was an exciting episode, too.”

Three other actors talked about an episode that was not centered around them. Flower child Flower, played by Sheila Carrasco, said, “I was going to say, I loved watching Alberta’s Fan. It’s really fun, Danielle [Pinnock] do her thing and watching Rebecca [Wisocky] and Devan have their storyline. It was such a beautifully written, such a well-done episode.” Carrasco did not appear in it, so she wanted to let us know, “It was so cool to be able to watch it as just a fan of all of these amazing actors.”

Critics Choice Award nominee Brandon Scott Jones, who plays the Revolutionary War soldier Isaac, added, “I’ll say that the moment at the end of Alberta’s Fan where she goes, ‘Because I’m famous,’ lives in my head rent-free. And will even long after I’m dead. I will be buried with that in a loop in my coffin.”

Rebecca Wisocky,  who stars as Hetty, the Victorian owner of the mansion they all live in, pitched a future for her co-star by saying, “The flashback that we’re all dying to see is Alberta singing in that club back in the day. That’s our secret cast wish, for that to happen sooner rather than later.”

There was one more actor who added her thoughts. Rose McIver, who sees the Ghosts had a great answer, “I think the Season 2 premiere, when we get that one day, is going to be even stronger.” I kind of agree with her. I would’ve said the 10th season premiere because I don’t want this show going anywhere anytime soon.

To see why I and so many others love Ghosts, tune into the Ghostmas marathon tonight.


Chris Noth fired from The Equalizer

Last week, Chris Noth was accused of sexual assault by three women. Since then, his agency dropped him.

As we know, he is no longer part of Sex and the City. But what about his future with The Equalizer? Today CBS and Universal Television announced, “Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he will be seen in one more episode that was already completed.

And just like that, his career is over.


CBS keeps investigating CSI: Vegas and Paramount+ still wants to know Why Women Kill
December 15th, 2021 under CBS, Paramount+. [ Comments: none ]

CBS announced today that they are renewing CSI: Vegas for a second season. Like the show’s victims, I never saw it coming.

While the show will be back, William Petersen will not be. When it comes to the franchise’s other OG, it is still unclear if Jorga Fox will suit up for the sequel’s second season.

Over on Paramount+, they are doing a third season of Why Women Kill with EP Marc Cherry. However, we don’t know what this season is about, but I hope it is more like the first season than the second one. I liked it better when it took place in different timelines.


CBS announces its midseason schedule and CSI: Vegas is missing from it
November 10th, 2021 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

CBS announced their midseason schedule today, and there are only changes to Wednesdays and Fridays. On those nights, they are adding the reality shows The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, and Celebrity Big Brother to fill the time slots. Who asked for the latter to return?

In fact, things are so much the same that the only show missing from the lineup is CSI: Vegas. CBS said in the press release that they only planned for the first season to be ten episodes. However, I don’t believe that. I could be wrong.

So what is replacing the reboot? Sophia Bush returns to CBS in Good Sam. The show is about Dr. Sam Griffith (Bush), a gifted heart surgeon who excels in her new leadership role as chief of surgery after her renowned boss, Dr. Rob “Griff” Griffith (Isaacs), falls into a coma. When Dr. Griffith wakes up months later, demanding to resume his duties, Sam is tasked with supervising this egotistical expert with a scalpel who never acknowledged her stellar talent. Complicating matters, this caustic and arrogant boss also happens to be her father. As Griff defies Sam’s authority and challenges her medical expertise, the big question becomes whether this father and daughter will ever be able to mend their own relationship as expertly as they heal the hearts of their patients.
