    When You don’t want comedy on Tuesdays the choice is easy from 8-10 NCIS & NCIS LA all the way.

  • Kat

    NCIS is the best. In Season 10 and still whipping the competition

    Love both shows, but if anything can be said against one it is NCIS-LA. NCIS mission is to protect the Navy and protect the secrets of the NAVY. NCIS is too close, in my opinion Los Angeles Police Dept. and not the NAVY.

    “NCIS” was brilliant last night. Excellent writing, great acting, and a solid storyline. Easily the most emotional episode since “Requiem,” though for different reasons.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was also impressive. Good writing and storyline, great acting, and some good humor (as I’ve said in the past, “NCIS: LA” doesn’t typically have good humor, but this season is a great improvement).

    “Vegas” was good. The show’s grown on me, but I’m trying to keep my distance, in case of cancellation.

    NCIS and NCIS LA are outstanding shows. I love them both. I am glad that they are holding up so well. We should have NCIS for as long as the actors want to do the show. Such a nice change from a show getting cancelled due to ratings.
