    “NCIS” was really good last night. Very enjoyable, and more engaging and humorous than the last few episodes.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was also really good. It seems they’ve managed to balance the humor. A lot of last season (and even the season before that) was plagued by poor jokes and badly-written humor, though you could find an episode or two that had good humor and spot-on jokes. They were rare, though.
    I also think last night was the first night (from what I’ve seen) that “NCIS” had a gunfight and “NCIS: Los Angeles” didn’t.

    “Vegas” was good, but the show seems to be becoming a victim of it’s own formula. Every week, it’s the same thing in the same pattern: Cop investigating a crime, something’s going on in the mob world, Dennis Quaid frowns, and Michael Chiklis smiles and tries to pass off as a good guy.
    “Criminal Minds” is another show that became a victim of it’s own formula, but it took 7 seasons to do that. Even if, by some chance, “Vegas” is renewed, the writers are going to have to come up with some more interesting characters/better character development and better storylines.
    Don’t get me wrong, though, I do enjoy the show.

    Pepper up LA & Vegas all you want, you’ll be calling the ratings doctor to fix your ails real soon.

    I enjoyed NCIS:LA but I resented the political inferences… the wonderful Hispanic candidate who wanted to “change the world”, who supported the occupy movement, and who is a “different kind of politician” that this country “needs”. Meanwhile, her Republican challenger is a pig in every way you can imagine. That was totally unnecessary and I resent it.
