NCIS: "Code of Conduct" and NCIS: Los Angeles: "Killshot" 10/20











NCIS rides a wave of popularity
-- Los Angeles Times

.....

"There are psychics all over town going, 'Didn't see that coming! Hard to call,' " Weatherly joked in his trailer, while eating a slice of cold pizza. "But it's a great feeling. It's like those movies about the racehorse that's not supposed to be -- we weren't bred in some Kentucky barn of some billionaire who has Arabian stallions. We're just a plow horse. But we run fast! It's one of those stories."

To be sure, "NCIS," a spinoff of "JAG," has never been a dud. The Navy crimes procedural premiered in 2003 and finished in 26th place its first year with 11.8 million viewers. The audience grew steadily, ranking in the top 20 during seasons 3, 4, and 5 -- standing strong against the mighty "American Idol" -- until it pushed ahead to fifth place last season, encouraging CBS executives to launch a spinoff. That new series is way ahead of the pack, even surpassing the success of "The Mentalist" last season.

.....

But as loyal as the "NCIS" fan base has been, the older-skewing series has never been a water cooler show among TV critics. Its median age is 56.6, though this season the drama also boasts a 28% boost in 18-to-49-year-old viewers, due, in part, to the success of the series in syndication on USA. "NCIS" is winning its time slot and ranks ninth among shows in that advertiser-coveted demographic this season.

.....

"We're a very strange little show," agrees Weatherly, referring to its blend of mystery, romance, action and humor. "There's a real '80s and even '70s throwback feeling. You get a kind of 'Barney Miller' feel with it. It's not quite so grim and static and monotone and dour as a lot of crime shows."

Another NCIS crossover for NCIS:LA tonight? I might tape this one.

So true there. And that's in part why I love it .

I hope to catch it tonight. I can't wait to see how every one reacts to Ziva being the new 'Probie' .

I could only do one vote on the poll. That's ok though. I don't really like NCIS L.A. It's just there.

This episode of NCIS:LA was the first I've watched, and I actually thought it was pretty good. Linda Hunt's character is fun, and the use of Vance didn't hurt either. NCIS-proper was good too. With the assortment of suspects, I wasn't sure who would end up being the killer.

(And yeah, the poll only allows 1 vote)

Best LA yet. Vance made this one work. They could still use a trimming of the cast though. Ms. Eye Candy adds nothing being outside the primary team. The rookie makes no sense for a deep cover unit. And if I wanted to watch Lie To Me I would and not the cheap copy in the team doctor.

I do like how it is Gibbs who is pushing the probie label onto Agent Davi even if Officer Davi had been there four years.
