Melinda McGrawSenior Special Agent Jethro Gibbs' penchant for marrying redheads has long been a source of humor on 'NCIS,' and this season we'll finally get to meet one of his ex-wives, the oft-mentioned Diane.

According to TVGuide.com, 'Mad Men' alum -- and redhead -- Melinda McGraw will guest star as Diane on an episode called 'Devil's Triangle,' airing in early November.

She'll be joined by Joe Spano, who plays her character's other ex-husband (and Gibbs' best friend), FBI Special Agent Tobias Fornell.

"Imagine being the ex-wife of both Gibbs and FBI Agent Fornell," says 'NCIS' executive producer Gary Glasberg.

Hank is truly painful to watch

Kelsey Grammer and Melinda McGraw of HankLet me give you a quick inside look at how things operate here in online entertainment journalism land: ABC sent us an invite to talk to Kelsey Grammer (and his co-star Melinda McGraw) during the same whirlwind "defending Hank" tour that Bob mentioned in his post yesterday. As much as I wanted to talk to Grammer, the conditions just didn't seem to be right.

For one, we would have had maybe ten minutes to talk to him. For another, he'd be defending a show that is a) terrible and b) on the verge of being cancelled. I want to talk to Grammer about comedy, Frasier, Cheers, his heart attack, and lots of other stuff. I wasn't particularly interested in him telling me how good he thinks Hank is for the whole interview.

But, when he told The TV Addict that last night's episode was going to be funny, it got me curious; maybe they had figured things out and made a leap in quality. So I tuned into last night's episode. I wish I hadn't.

VIDEO: 'Hank' Interview With Kelsey Grammer and Melinda McGraw

HankLet's face it: the economy is in the toilet. So who wants to watch a bunch of sitcoms about upper-class families with zero money problems? That's why the timing of 'Hank' (premieres Wed., Sept. 30, 8PM ET on ABC), a new riches-to-rags sitcom, is so perfect.

You probably associate star Kelsey Grammer with snooty, holier-than-thou characters like Dr. Frasier Crane, but with the help of a more real-to-life storyline and a supporting cast including Melinda McGraw and David Koechner, Grammer might finally be seen as an Everyman.

Watch the full video to hear Grammer reveal why he's more like Hank than any other character he's played, McGraw talk about her glorious stint on 'Mad Men' (in the present tense!) and one of them doing a very impressive Paula Deen impersonation. And yes, a glass of milk with some fudge pie does sound delicious, doesn't it?

Seinfeld: The Good Samaritan

Seinfeld: The Good Samaritan(S03E19) I just love it when the Fab Four pass judgement on the crappy behavior of others. It's as if they don't realize how despicable they are from day to day, or -- the more likely answer -- they just don't care. In this episode, Jerry and the gang repeatedly trash the reputation of a person who would hit a car and drive away without leaving a note. Justifiable, until you realize that Jerry lies about confronting the hit-and-run driver because he wants to date her, George is dating a married woman whose husband doesn't say "God bless you," and Kramer steals a girl Jerry's been eyeing right out from under him. Elaine seems to be in the clear here, though... she's only devious every third episode, at least at this stage of the show's run.
