Bill can't die! I know everyone does on True Blood, but please tell me that he takes the cure. — Andrea
With only two episodes to go, there are a lot of narrative threads to tie up, including the issue of Bill's mortality. I will only say this: At least one original cast member will say goodbye for good this week. In possibly related news, a longstanding love triangle will be resolved and you'll see one of the show's weirdest — and funniest — sex scenes between a long-unrequited pair.
I can't believe they're already giving DiNozzo a new love interest on NCIS. — Susan
I'm sure there are 'shippers out there who never want to see Tony with anyone but Ziva, but that 'ship has sailed. Or has it? ...

When at first you do succeed: do it again. Imitation, not innovation, was the prevailing takeaway when CBS presented its fall prospects (and one notable midseason contender) at the TCA press tour on Thursday.
Not that the network's entertainment chairman Nina Tassler had any apologies for doubling down on what works — not when a franchise like NCIS (launching its second spinoff in September) can achieve what she called the "creative holy grail" with its global dominance, or when syndication and/or streaming deals with outlets like Hulu, Amazon and WGN add to the bottom line for shows including the acclaimed The Good Wife and Elementary and the sci-fi hits of the last two summers. "These [new] platforms aren't replacing each other. They're complementing one another and enhancing the value of the content as it moves from window to window."

Tuesday's episode of NCIS finds the team attempting to track down a stolen drone, with all roads leading back to the terrorist Parsa. And — surprise! — turns out new wunderkind Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) wrote an analysis on the subject a few years ago that the group can use as a reference.
But Tony (Michael Weatherly) has his own ideas about where to turn for some extra knowledge: the Terminator movies.
