Pauley Perrette's lab rat Abby has been let loose in the NCIS squad room.

With charming one-liners replacing six-pack abs, stand-up comic Billy Gardell and Gilmore Girls alum Melissa McCarthy not only look like average Americans, but their honest, vulnerable romance somehow makes even fat jokes feel warm and cuddly. ...

C'mon, you've all been thinking the same thing. How the hell does she go to the bathroom? Days of Our Lives' Vivian Alamain — played to madcap brilliance by Louise Sorel — is finally rescued from that sarcophagus this Friday (November 5) where she's been trapped for weeks without food, water or a loo.
