    Yes, Yes, Yes! NCIS go back to old strong. Nearly 20 million mark.

    “NCIS” was the best episode this season (and quite possibly one of my favorite episodes of the series), so I’m glad it did so well. It was well-acted, well-directed, and had a strong plot. A lot of shows do kidnapping episodes, but that was one of the best ones I’ve ever seen.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was also very good. Interesting storyline and some good humor. So glad they’ve controlled the humor in the show. Past seasons felt strained and the humor was just flat. This season is a big improvement.

    “Vegas” is growing on me, last night’s episode was possibly the best so far.
    Hate to see how badly it’s doing, because it is a nice break from the traditional procedural.
