NCIS: Los Angeles
Several MMA fighters — Dan Henderson, Frank Shamrock, Gilbert Melendez, Josh Thomson, K.J. Noons, and Cung Le — have cameos in an episode that has one of the agents going undercover as a fighter. Of course, it's Eric. Kidding. Seriously, the series has already lost Dom, so they can't afford to take another hit. Sam is the obvious choice, as he battles the fighters when the murder of a marine is connected to a mixed-martial-arts gym.

The re-imagined sci-fi series awakens from its winter slumber to address those suspenseful scenarios, with genre babes Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica) and Lexa Doig (Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda) along for the ride.

Former advertising executive Dick Wolf got his start in television writing for shows like Hill Street Blues and Miami Vice. But his greatest accomplishment is Law & Order, which mastered the TV-show-as-brand concept by cornering the market on cops-and-courts procedurals. (This year it ties Gunsmoke's record for longest-running scripted television program.) L&O laid the groundwork for two successor series: Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Wolf, one of the influential television industry players interviewed for TVGuide.com's Best of the Decade section, talked with us about the germ of the idea that led to his gritty TV empire.
