I am dying to know what happens in the NCIS finale. — Eric
ADAM: Expect even more bloodshed. But the Port-to-Port Killer case doesn't completely rule the hour. "The finale really hits a lot of the Vance-Gibbs tension," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "It's going to provide a lot of answers to what Vance has been dealing with all season. Gibbs is going to become privy to a lot of it... and it's going to bring his relationship with Vance to another level." Does that signal an administrative shakeup? "There are definite changes that affect NCIS," Glasberg says. "The team is going to have to work together in a way they've never had to work together before next season."
Can you tell us anything about the Smallville finale? — Brad

Hello, again! This is Dean Collins from The War at Home, writing my second blog for TVGuide.com. This week's episode of The War at Home is entitled, "Take This Job and Bleep It." Instead of airing this Thursday night, we're moving back to our usual Sunday night schedule at a new time, 7:30 pm/ET. Sorry about the confusion, but I assure you this is our last move.

When Anita Barone (Vicky) yells at Mike to clean his room, he just brushes her off. Recently, I went to the premiere of The Number 23 after work.

I did not get to meet Jim Carrey, but he sat right behind me, and it was quite an experience, considering he's my favorite actor. I love his dramatic films and this was really cool because it's the first time...read more
Question: I currently go to college and live with three other roommates, all big fans of Fox's Sunday-night comedy lineup. A week ago, we watched all four of the shows, from The Simpsons to American Dad. What troubled me the most was my roommates' puzzling affection for The War at Home. They laughed at every racial, sexual and trashy joke, all of which I found rather disturbing. I know the modern sitcom has transformed from white-bread to dysfunctional, but War's loudmouthed stupidity was too much for me. Even The Simpsons' premiere was lacking, but it easily towered over this junk. What did you think?
Answer: Have you considered finding new roomies? (Joke.) And is it possible you're living with sophomores? Because The War at Home may in fact be the most sophomoric new comedy of the season. (Sorry.) Like you, I found this one to be crude without being the least bit funny, pandering for laughs with only one marginally adept performance (Anita Barone as the mom) in the entire cast. But
