Kanye West led the field with seven Grammy nominations, including Song of the Year and Best Rap Performance, as the Recording Academy announced the nominees with a live, music-filled special Wednesday night. NCIS: Los Angeles star (and Grammy winner) LL Cool J hosted the celebration for a fourth time.
A week from now, we won't be thanking Fox for ditching its Tuesday comedy lineup to make room for another displaced edition of The X Factor (which will be shifting its schedule back a day to avoid spoiling our Thanksgiving digestion with another results show).
NCIS: Los Angeles
Change is coming to NCIS: Los Angeles.
In Tuesday's episode (9/8c, CBS), Sam (LL Cool J) is tasked with finding hidden explosives before they detonate. But he won't be working with Callen (Chris O'Donnell). Instead, he'll head into the field with Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen).

The results? Hilarity, and possibly disaster, Olsen tells TVGuide.com. "Hunter [Claire Forlani] is the catalyst for most of the disasters early on this season," he says. "She decides it's in her best interest to switch up the partnering."
Although Olsen says all of the NCIS agents are unhappy about the switch, he admits there is a lot of fun in Sam and Deeks' odd-couple pairing...

Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J
It's ice-cream-sundae Thursday on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles, and almost everyone is indulging between takes. Even LL Cool J, who moonlights as a fitness guru. "Hey, you've earned it," a crew member tells the überbuff rapper/action hero, as if he needs anyone's consent for a sugar rush. The collegial atmosphere continues as Chris O'Donnell passes Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen, who wrapped their roles a half hour ago yet have stuck around to yak over their Ben & Jerry's. "Don't you two have homes?" O'Donnell demands to know, breezing on by before Ruah has a chance to kickbox his behind.
Apparently the lone holdout, O'Donnell hasn't taken any...

NCIS: Los Angeles
When last we saw Peter Cambor on NCIS: Los Angeles, his character, operational psychologist Nate Getz, was packing up his office for a secret assignment.
Exclusive: What's next for NCIS: Los Angeles' Nate?
Nate returns in Tuesday's episode, and while the team reunion may be sweet, don't expect an abundance of revelations about Nate's disappearance.
"The mystery still remains as to where exactly he's gone, but what you need to know is he's done some special training to improve the skill set he already has," Cambor tells TVGuide.com. "You get to see my new skills come to use, and I'll say it's not like he went to typing school."
Indeed, Nate goes undercover at a prison with Sam...

Erik Christian Olsen
Eric Christian Olsen remembers the moment he learned he'd graduated to "regular" status for the second season of NCIS: Los Angeles, after guesting on two episodes in Season 1. "I got the call while I was in Canada doing The Thing prequel," he says. "I was so excited they were picking up the option I was jumping around with a tentacle hanging off [my] back."
