'NCIS: Los Angeles' Keeps Deeks Guessing Until It's Almost Too Late (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2011 6:15AM
'NCIS: Los Angeles'Did you see the big reveal of the mole coming on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS)? Don't feel bad if you didn't. We didn't either. The episode did a pretty good job of distracting us with the whole Deeks-Kensi dynamic, and that pesky shooting situation with Deeks.

We love that the Deeks shooting was all a ploy to flush out the real mole in the LAPD. That was a fun twist after putting us through a pretty emotional roller coaster, along with his partner.

Plus, the writers did a good job of pinning the mole status on Bates, all the way until the big reveal at the red sedan when Deeks came walking up and Bates was ready to point the finger at him. Suddenly, it all came together.

Light, Escapist Shows Rise to the Head of the Freshman Class of 2009-10

by Gary Susman, posted Apr 30th 2010 3:30PM
When the going gets tough, the tough veg out in front of the tube.

Variety's picks for the top new series of the 2009-10 season suggest that, in these tough times, viewers' favorite new shows were generally the light, escapist, family-friendly ones. Most were comedies (including 'Community,' 'Glee,' and 'Modern Family'), but even the dramas were low-key affairs ('Parenthood,' the strangely reassuring 'Good Wife,' the fantasy 'Vampire Diaries').

Of the four new dramas on the list, only one was a crime procedural ('NCIS: Los Angeles'). Even the one reality show on the list was one that didn't involve competition and elimination ('Undercover Boss').

Sam and G. Battle Bad Guys on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (VIDEO)

NCIS: Los Angeles, LL Cool J, Chris O'DonnellThere was some serious fight choreography on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS), when Sam and G. found themselves smack in the middle of a hairy situation.

While we always root for the good guys, it would probably be more true to life if one of them actually got knocked out now and then. They always seem to come out with nary a scratch.

Not that we're complaining. We don't want anything to happen to Chris O'Donnell or LL Cool J's pretty faces.

LL Cool J Keeps His Cool on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 3rd 2010 1:07AM
Ellen DeGeneres, LL Cool JLL Cool J lived up to his name on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) when he kept his cool after a little twist of words on Ellen's part. Look, the guy has some crazy-ass muscles, and you just know it takes a ton of work to keep 'em that way.

So when Ellen asked how he managed to stay fit while logging such long hours on the set of 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' he said, "It's tough. You have to do it after hours, you have to do it on the weekends, you gotta figure it out. How bad do you want it?"

At this point, the audience cheered and Ellen said, "That's not what he meant! Don't answer that!" Ok, so maybe he got a little embarrassed, but still managed to keep it on the down-low ... or whatever it is cool guys say.

CBS renews NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 15th 2010 10:00AM
good_wife_NCIS_laThis should come as no surprise to anybody who's been following the current television season. CBS has renewed The Good Wife and NCIS: LA for second seasons. Both shows are part of a solid Tuesday night lineup for CBS, amassing strong Nielsen ratings and even better numbers in total viewers, holding much of the audience from the NCIS lead in. All that adds up to a winning formula, and thus, CBS wasn't going to break up a good thing.

As for the quality of the two shows, they both deserved renewal. They've improved as the season has progressed, especially The Good Wife. What started out as a good premise has morphed into a very compelling legal drama with a lingering subplot – exactly what did Alicia's husband do to warrant the wrath of the enemies that have put him in prison? It's also a terrific set of actors and a star-turn by Julianna Margulies.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Seven shows a-thrivin'

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 17th 2009 11:03AM
john lithgowOn the seventh day of Festivus, TV gave to me... Seven shows a-thrivin'.

The 2009-2010 season is a great one to be on TV-- especially for returning dramas and new comedies. If we had 20 days of Christmas, I probably could have filled the list with shows that were either thriving right out of the gate or making a resurgence after being on the air for several years. As it is, we just have seven slots, so here are some noteworthy series that are thriving this year.

Dexter
I've always liked Dexter, but it's never been appointment TV for me. I've generally been content to wait until the season came out on DVD and knock all of the episodes out in a weekend. However, after a creative dip in season 3, I've found myself positively glued to my television every Sunday night that season 4 has aired. John Lithgow absolutely made the season as the creepy Arthur Mitchell. Plus the finale? I know some of you saw the big twist coming at the end, but I certainly did not. Who doesn't like to end a season with their jaw on the floor?

Abby's crossover to NCIS: Los Angeles was excellent

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 25th 2009 10:25AM
ncis_los_angeles_abbyI have to admit that when I initially heard that Abby's character would be crossing over from NCIS to NCIS: Los Angeles, my reaction was meh. What could they possibly do that would make the transfer of the ultimate forensics goth geek from the cozy confines of her lab in D.C. to the high-tech, touch screen caravan in L.A. compelling?

Well, I tip my cap to Speed Weed (that has to be an alias!) for writing the episode, "Random On Purpose," which struck me as one of the best examples that NCIS: Los Angeles is coming together pretty nicely. I could definitely see now how this show is evolving. More on that and the rest of the episode (including spoilers -- be warned -- after the jump).

CBS plans Super Bowl halftime and... what comes on after the game

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 13th 2009 1:09PM
nfl_logo_cbs"Did you hear who's going to play during the Super Bowl halftime show?"
"No, who?"
"That's what I just said. Who."
"No, seriously. Which is the band that's going to appear?"
"It's Who."
"I'm not talking proper English. Which band will be on CBS's halftime show on February 7 at Landshark Stadium in Miami?"
"The Who -- you know, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend. 'Tommy, can you hear me?'"
"Oh! Why didn't you just say that!"

Okay, I couldn't resist the nod to Abbott and Costello's Who's On First. But the fact is that Sports Illustrated has spread the word that The Who will star in the Super Bowl big, overblown half-time pageant. This follows the safe pattern the NFL has been employing since the Janet Jackson-Justin Timberlake costume malfunction; that is, stick with classic rock stars who are guaranteed to do their hits and not disrobe. That's why we've had Prince, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and now The Who. All superstar acts, no controversy.

Five reasons I'm not hooked on NCIS: LA

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 30th 2009 10:03AM
ncis_la_cast
If I tell you right now, before November sweeps, that CBS will renew NCIS: Los Angeles for a second season, you won't be surprised. The pre-season projections for this show were that it was a guaranteed success. It wasn't only that it was a spinoff from CBS's top-rated drama series, NCIS. No, it was programming. CBS slotted NCIS: LA in the hour right after NCIS. It had a very strong spot, a monster lead in.

Abby's trip to NCIS Los Angeles is set

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 22nd 2009 1:04PM
Pauley_Perrette_NCISCircle the date on the calendar. On November 24 -- that's right before Thanksgiving so you might be busy with other stuff -- don't miss NCIS: Los Angeles because Pauley Perrette's Abby will be guesting. She won't just be on a monitoring talking to the folks in L.A.; she'll be in the City of Angels.

Goth Abby in the City of Angels? We knew it was coming. But how oxymoronic. All that sunshine is counter to the dark vibe, although if you ask me, Abby is a walking oxymoron. She's a scientist in love with forensics who is covered in tattoos, has a dog collar as a necklace and likes pigtails.

Anyway, back to the crossover. Michael Ausiello's sources have leaked to him at EW.com that Abby's visit to the Left Coast is a major plot point. Abby is not there by choice; she's been abducted.
