    “NCIS” was amazing last night. I’m liking this season, even without Ziva.
    Glad they expanded some on Diane Neal’s character. She’s been in the show for a few seasons now, so it’s about time we got to know her character.
    Neal’s a competent actress, and I hope she’s in the show more.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was its usual self: cheesy, goofy, fast-paced, but nonetheless great in its own way.

    I was a little preoccupied during “Person of Interest,” but from what I saw of it, it seemed like a really good episode. Hate to see that dip, but I don’t think it’ll hurt it.

    Do you know if they will be replacing Ziva with a new feamle regular, or are they maybe moving someone in we’ve seen on the show already? Have they made a casting decision yet?

    From what I know, they’re going bring in a new female character named Bishop. Emily Wickersham has been cast to play the character, and she’ll be introduced during the November sweeps.
    I don’t know if she’s going to replace Ziva, but I’m pretty sure that’s what they’re aiming for.
