Michael Weatherly and Dr. Phil McGraw
On NCIS, Tony DiNozzo is always getting his head slapped, but does he need to have it shrunk, too? Michael Weatherly has created a couple of surreal YouTube clips in which the raffish agent is confronted by Dr. Phil at the behest of concerned buddy Jimmy Palmer — based, he says, on...
Behind the Scenes at the NCIS TV Guide Photo Shoot
As NCIS hit its 10-year anniversary, the cast of TV's No. 1 drama gathered to grace the cover of TV Guide Magazine.
Exclusive: NCIS cast gathers for roundtable tell-all!
In the behind-the-scenes video below, join NCIS stars Mark Harmon, Cote de Pablo, Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, Sean Murray, David McCallum and Brian Dietzen on their cover shoot and be sure to get all the scoop here...
"This is all just a setup," says Pauley Perrette, walking into the NCIS writers' room north of Los Angeles. Michael Weatherly fatalistically adds: "This is where we all..." Brian Dietzen finishes the thought: "...meet our end."
Not bloody likely. Sure, the series did off a couple major characters in the first five seasons (RIP, Lauren Holly's Jenny), and some significant recurring characters have met their makers in the five years since (Mike Franks, we hardly knew ye!). But the chances of any of these eight diehards going down anytime before the show ends its run are about the same as the odds of Gibbs cracking a sustained smile.
Speaking of which: When we gathered all eight regular cast members of TV's No. 1 drama for a historic summit, their fearless leader, Mark Harmon, was largely the quiet man out. When his colleagues finally called him on his reticence, he swore he was having too good a time listening to everyone else's banter. As you read this unprecedented full-cast gabfest, you'll know exactly what he means.

Although Leroy Jethro Gibbs got to see how his life could have played out differently on the landmark 200th episode of NCIS, he decided he wouldn't have it any other way.
NCIS celebrates 200 episodes with an emotional "what if?" story
After being fired at while enjoying his morning cup of coffee at a diner, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) was led by the ghosts of Mike Franks (Muse Watson), Riley McCallister (Michael O'Neill) and Gibbs' wife Shannon (Darby Stanchfield) to some of the defining moments of Gibbs' life and the series. What if Gibbs had stopped a sniper from killing agent Kate Todd (Sasha Alexander)? What if Gibbs hadn't killed the man who murdered his family? And what if Gibbs hadn't been an NCIS agent at all?
In the end, truth was better than fiction for Gibbs. We chatted with executive producer Gary Glasberg about creating this one-of-a-kind hour...
Mark Harmon and Muse Watson, NCIS
That's the basic question at the heart of NCIS' 200th episode. The landmark hour (airing Tuesday at 8/7c on CBS) takes Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to his favorite diner for his usual morning cup of coffee. But he gets a whole lot more: Out of the blue, a hooded gunman approaches Gibbs, pulls his weapon and fires.

Cue a string of mind-bending flashbacks that ask the question: What if Gibbs had taken a different path?
"There's almost an It's a Wonderful Life quality to it," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "Gibbs is given an opportunity in a millisecond to see what the world would have been like if key moments in NCIS history and lore had unfolded differently. We've taken some of those moments and we let people see them unfold differently."
Indeed, Michael Weatherly, who plays Agent Tony DiNozzo, says...
One of Southern California's peculiar mid-winter heat waves is keeping things toasty on this early January afternoon, so the setting isn't particularly conducive to sudden chills. But you might get one down the spine anyway if you're visiting the NCIS set, since the whole damn soundstage is spook-infested.
Darby Stanchfield is making one of her rare appearances on the series — rare because her character, Shannon Gibbs, got killed 20 years ago. Which, if you're doing the math, is more than a decade before...
With NCIS' 200th episode approaching on Feb. 7, we asked the cast, along with current show-runner Gary Glasberg, to share some favorite episodes or scenes from the first eight and a half years.
