Cote de PabloCote de Pablo fans can breathe a sigh relief. The 'NCIS' star has signed a new two-year deal with the series.

According to Deadline, de Pablo was the last actor without a deal for the new season. De Pablo is rumored to have gotten a salary increase, making her per-episode payment $120,000.

Mark Harmon signed a two-year deal in February, ensuring the show a season 9. Harmon will reportedly earn around $500,000 per episode, around the same range Hugh Laurie makes for 'House.'

'NCIS' posted series-high ratings this season, its eighth, with 22 million viewers tuning into one episode. 'NCIS' boss Shane Brennan spoke to AOL TV after the milestone event. "[I feel] incredibly gratified, because we put so much hard work and so much love and attention into these episodes," he said.

Cote De Pablo Teaches 'The Talk' Hosts the Art of TV Fistfights (VIDEO)

Cote De Pablo teached 'The Talk' the art of the TV fistfightIn her role playing former Mossad agent Ziva David on 'NCIS,' Cote De Pablo does a lot of fighting, a skill she showed off on Monday's 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). De Pablo taught the panel a few moves for a convincing TV fistfight, pairing off with Julie Chen while Sharon Osbourne and Holly Robinson Peete mimicked their movements.

Some of the essentials were keeping a "fighter's pose," making eye contact, and swinging so that it looks to the camera like you're making contact, but missing by enough to not accidentally smack your fight partner. Chen went a little over the top in reacting to De Pablo's punch. "It's very Cher," said De Pablo.

Not to be outdone, Peete and Osbourne went at it, and Osbourne took a fairly convincing dive to the floor. Peete hopped on top of her and continued the beating. Perhaps there's some underlying hostility on the set.

NCIS: Aliyah (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 20th 2009 9:01AM
NCISAnd so ends the sixth season of NCIS. For some reason, I didn't think the show would even last one season, but sometimes a show just surprises you with how strong it does in the ratings. If anything, the show has gotten stronger as the years have gone on. It survived the departure of its creator and has hung around long enough to spawn a spinoff this fall, with Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. No name for that show yet. Any ideas? They'll probably think of something with an "NCIS" and a ":" in it.

Here are the new NCIS cast members

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 12th 2008 2:43PM

NCISNCIS has to be the #1 show that no one I know watches. I don't mean anything by that, I hear great things about it from readers here. It's just interesting that it's incredibly popular (always in the top 20, often in the top 10) and yet it's one of those shows that no one talks about (see also JAG).

As regular viewers know, the entire team was split up in the season finale, and then word came that Rocky Carroll had been made a series regular. Now comes word that the show has added three more cast members (no word on if they are in for the long haul or just this season), and one of them is a familiar face and name.

NCIS: Angel Of Death (season finale)

by Brett Love, posted May 23rd 2007 9:19AM
Lauren Holly(S04E24) CBS has been teasing this episode for a couple weeks now, with promises of secrets being revealed. They did get to the big one, though that was more of a confirmation of what we already expected. Overall though, I think they oversold it. Another case of the promotions department writing checks that the writers aren't cashing.

That feeling of something being incomplete carried over into the rest of the episode as well. It just didn't have the feel of the big season finale. The show set a very high bar with "Twilight" in season two and can't afford to just phone it in like this. Half of this episode could have just been dropped right in the middle of any other episode and it wouldn't have made a difference. That's fine, for episodes 2 through 23, but the big guns have to come out for the first and the last.

NCIS: Cover Story

Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo(S04E20) Twenty episodes in, and I'm chomping at the bit to get to the Tony/Jeanne story. Credit to team NCIS that they have created an arc that has people waiting anxiously for a resolution. With that in mind, if you would have told me that we were going to get a stand alone episode that didn't get into any of the big seasonal stories, I doubt I would have been excited about it.

But then they went and did this. Bringing McGee's next book, "Rock Hollow," into the picture made for some great scenes. And those scenes were really what sold this one. The actual mystery was interesting, but more for what we learned about McGee and the new book than the actual whodunnit aspect. I thought they gave Landon away right off the bat when he recognized "Thom."

NCIS: Iceman

Cote de Pablo(S04E18) One thing we can say for this episode, the answer to the mystery wasn't obvious from the get go. Between the loan shark, the shady freight carrier, and the return of Mike Franks (Muse Watson), it was a complicated affair. That's ok though, because it made for a pretty entertaining episode.

The folks in promotion over at CBS get a couple demerits this week for the misleading teasers. The various previews I saw kept mentioning "a connection to Gibbs' past." Now, that's some of the good stuff that I think a lot of fans are waiting for. If there was a connection in this episode, it was either very minor, or I completely missed it. If that connection was just Mike coming back again, then they horribly oversold it.

NCIS: Dead Man Walking

by Brett Love, posted Feb 21st 2007 7:30AM
Cote de Pablo(S04E16) Those crafty NCIS writers kind of slipped a little something in there this week. As we got underway I resigned myself to the fact that this was a stand alone episode and we wouldn't be tracking The Frog or making any headway where Jeanne is concerned.

Not that there is anything wrong with that. NCIS does as good a job as anybody at mixing the two facets. As the story moved along though, there was something of an ongoing story that continued to develop. I'm referring to the ever evolving relationship between Tony and Ziva. Their bickering and fighting has proved quite entertaining in the past, but as season four has progressed, things have slowly been changing. It's a nice bit of writing the team is doing as they've taken their time to let this all come out.

NCIS: Friends and Lovers

Ziva and McGee - NCIS(S04E15) After the big revelations last week regarding the ongoing case, I fully expected a stand-alone episode that mostly ignored it this week. And that is pretty much what was delivered. It's ok though, because while it was open and shut, this was an interesting case.

What really sold the mystery for me was the way it was presented. The Club One angle worked on a couple different levels. I would have said it was worth it just for the scene with McGee, Abby, Ziva, and Lee making their entrance, but there was much more.

The exclusivity of the club put the team at a disadvantage because they couldn't investigate as they normally would. It had the bonus of putting us in the same situation, because we couldn't get a feel for the suspects.
