CBS Picks Up NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife

by Scott Harris, posted Oct 8th 2009 1:30PM
NCIS Los AngelesIn the least shocking news, well, maybe ever, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' was picked up by CBS for a full season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, both the 'NCIS' spin-off and fellow freshman drama 'The Good Wife' have been extended after posting strong ratings. While there was some slippage last week, the two shows, which air back-to-back on Tuesday nights, have attracted more viewers than any other new series this fall and have helped the network dominate the night so far this season.

VIDEO: LL Cool J on 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' Chris O'Donnell and Crossovers

LL Cool JLL Cool J's fan club just got a lot bigger -- by about 18 million people.

That's how many viewers tuned into last week's series premiere of 'NCIS: Los Angeles.' The spin-off of 'NCIS' looks on track to be one of fall's hit freshman shows. Of course, the spotlight of success brings pressure, too.

"It represents a big challenge, because the original was so loved," the rapper/actor said when he stopped by AOL recently. "[But] I'd rather have this problem than the problem of coming out with a show that no one ever heard of and none of this pressure."

Over the summer, spoilers were leaked that the NCIS season premiere would begin with a bang. They weren't kidding. Last night's show was a spine-tingling puzzle of an episode that unraveled scene by scene, building suspense to the ultimate -- satisfying -- conclusion. If you were thinking that, like last year, the team was going to be torn asunder after the way things ended with Ziva being returned to Israel, you were pleasantly surprised. More after the jump.

However, there's another story to report. The overnight ratings are in and the viewers have spoken. Twenty million of them! The return of NCIS zoomed to the top of the ratings with 20 million viewers tuning in. That helped CBS launch NCIS: Los Angeles, opening with 18 million, and also bolstered The Good Wife with nearly 14 million. Any way you slice it, those are stellar numbers. The folk at the Black Rock must be dancing in the hallways.

LL Cool J'No Crew Is Superior' to the one in tonight's premiere of 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' at least according to star LL Cool J.

The rapper/actor/entrepreneur recorded a special track just to promote his new series. "I met with NCIS agents, marines, went down to Camp Pendleton and had some great meetings with behavioral analysts and it just really inspired me," he told AOL TV in an upcoming exclusive video interview. "So I wrote a song, put it together, called my man Tricky [Stewart, a producer] up, did something just to promote the show ... help people get into the mindset of my character."

Check out the rap video, with clips from the show, after the jump ...

The real reason Without A Trace was cancelled

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 4th 2009 8:57PM

Amid the CBS Summer Press Tour this week, the subject came up about why the network had cancelled Without A Trace. It wasn't ratings, which is clearly the truth because just this past weekend, Without A Trace was pulling over six million viewers for a rerun, doubling the number of people who tuned in for the brand new ABC series, Defying Gravity. Therefore, if Without A Trace was still capable of besting the fodder produced by the competition, why on earth would CBS dump it?

"Every show has its own life cycle," said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler, who went on to explain that the shows the network had in development were just too good to wait. In other words, The Good Wife, Three Rivers and NCIS: Los Angeles, none of which are proven hits, were more important than an established success.

Pauley_Perrette_Abby_NCISHow will the producers of NCIS make sure that fans tune in to the show they don't switch the channel after the end credits and stay put for NCIS: Los Angeles, the spin-off? One way will be with crossovers. We've already reported the Rocky Carroll will appear on both shows, now comes word that NCIS mainstay Pauley Perrette will do a two-episode stint on NCIS: L.A.

And they aren't waiting for the guest stint. In the second episode, Perrette's brilliant, goth scientist character, Abby Scuito, will do a "fun little cameo" according to exec producer Shane Brennan.

Emmy Wish List: Outstanding Drama Series

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 15th 2009 9:06AM
NCIS
Let's assume that there will be six nominees in the Best Drama category again this year, shall we? It wouldn't surprise me that five out of the six series that were nominated last year are once again nominated this year. Let's face it, Damages, Dexter, House, Lost and Mad Men are still powerhouse drama series and didn't let us down too much this past season.

Since Boston Legal, which was nominated last year, was canceled, it leaves space for another drama series to make its way to the nominees list. Which drama should get the spot?

Rocky Carroll doubling down on NCIS franchise

Leo G. Carroll did it in 1966. Lisa Bonet sort of did it in 1987. What am I talking about? Double duty. That is, playing the same role on two series which are running at the same time. There are probably quite a few other instances, but Leo was head man Mr. Waverly on both The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. for a year, and Lisa was Denise Huxtable in college (A Different World) and when she came home to visit the family in Brooklyn on The Cosby Show.

Now, Rocky Carroll will appear on both NCIS shows. Doing double duty makes perfect sense for the NCIS twosome, especially since they're going to be airing back to back on Tuesday, 8-10 P.M.
