I’M DOING MY HAPPY DANCE RIGHT NOW
Michael J. Vertucci says
NCIS embodies a fundamental desire of a huge segment of Americans, to see justice prevail. In the sphere of National Security a true to life agency like NCIS is engaged in the never ending struggle to keep us all safe. The key players in this TV version of NCIS offer another fundamental desire of Americans… STABILITY! Sure some have come and gone, and will continue to do so. Yet the turnovers have been emotional and spell binding with arcing story lines the keep you in suspense. Finally there is the tribute to Americas Service Men and Women. Americana drips from this show with international intrigue as well. If they ever decided to replace Mark Harmon or his character Leroy Jethro Gibbs… they would have to resurrect John Wayne to do it justice. I hope it never ends. In closing, Ziva David could add so much even with infrequent appearances like Mike Franks or Tobias Fornell. One can only hope. Semper Fi
Mary Brunner says
Michael, I totally agree with everything you said. NCIS just keeps on getting better, always keeps you on the edge of your seat, never a dull episode. My husband and I have watched every show since it first aired. Many tears, but life with its sorrows continues on.This show teaches you that. Previous cast are never forgotten…… I would love to see Ziva come back on for guest star appearances… If they EVER take this greatest show ever, off the air. One can only hope that Ziva, and Tony will get back together. What a way to partially close this great show. I pray that NCIS will have many more yrs., Like i said, never have seen a bad episode. One show that makes CBS stand out from the rest, amongst their other good shows. Hawaii Five-o, Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, NCIS Los Angelas, and others. CBS, what were you even thinking, to even consider taking these shows off the air. They are the very shows that set you apart from all the other networks. Ratings dip with the seasons, but that does not mean they are not being watched later. People of all ages, races, sex, love watching them., and many more that i just have not mentioned, that were still on the cutting block. CSI started to die slowly, when you took off New York, and Miami. CBS, keep doing what sets you apart. Good clean shows, that have great story lines. Keep out the occult, severe nudity, swearing, leave that to other networks .Families love your shows for a reason. Think about what you are doing now, that sets you apart, and continue doing it.
Luke B says
I agree. These shows are clean and have great story plots. It goes to show that you don’t need nudity or intense swearing to make a good show. Keep up the good work CBS!
Great job and also keep Person Of Interest around for awhile. It is an awesome show!!!
Cindy Wearmouth says
NOOO stalker was one of my favourite shows never missed it at least my other shows r still on what a bummer
Jill Pearson says
I really liked “Stalker” as well. I thought it was very well done and it was certainly quite suspenseful. There’s so much junk on TV right now, it’s a shame this great show didn’t make the cut. However, I find CBS to have the best shows and I watch it more often than I did in the past.
I totally agree, I thought for sure that Stalker would come back this season. I’m very sad to read that it’s not 🙁
I forgot to mention that I’m really happy that Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, POI, Hawaii F-0, all of the NCIS shows, Scorpion and Big Bang Theory are returning. We need these kinds of shows more than the reality shows they keep adding on. I only like a few reality shows, but for the most part I like good comedy and shows that make sense.
Mike Cunningham says
I agree. Mike
Mary S. Miller says
I also enjoyed Stalker. Very relevant, entertaining and educational all wrapped up.
good for the renewals, they all deserve it… pity about Forever and Battle Creek!
Come on CBS cancel CSI there are enough “new versions of the old” and give Stalker at least another season to develop a even greater fan base.
Carl Rennhack says
Congratulations to all the stars & behind-the-scenes people who make Blue Bloods the great show that it is! I hope Season 6 will see Officer Jameson Reagan become a detective & marry Edit!
I totally agree…my favorite show, and a great family portrayal for us adults as well as young people.
Pam Germany says
Happy dance for Blue Bloods, Hawaii 5-0, NCIS, POI. For renewal. Yea! Sad that Forever didn’t make it. Maybe another network will pick it up. Still missing Perception and Dallas. Again congrats to those that were renewed!!!
i am very happy that hawaii five o and ncis has been renewed for more seasons the only downside is that csi has been cancelled
So glad that Blue Bloods has been renewed along with all of the NCISs.! I also would like to see Jamie Reagan make detective.
Shame Stalker is cancelled it was quite a good show and I always anticipated another episode but at least That’s so far the only CBS TVs series that I liked has been cancelled so It’s going good.
P.S. I just hope someone decides to pick up Forever even if It’s not going to be ABC.
Connie Whitten says
Soooo happy that Blue Blood was renewed. Love the show but wish they didn’t drink so much. An ice tea or soda would be nice once in a while.
Sue Chapman says
I agree with the drinking part. No harm in a non-alcoholic beverage now and again!
Jill Pearson says
Hey, they’re Irish! It’s in our blood! And actually, they don’t really “drink so much.” They have wine with Sunday dinner, once a week. After dinner, Frank and some of his “kids” will have an after dinner drink. Sometimes Frank and Henry will have a beer together. Once in a while Jamie and Eddie go to Happy Hour after work; they are 30 year old cops in a stressful job, letting off steam. When Frank meets with the Monsignor or the Priests, they do have tea. And Frank is seen drinking coffee all the time.
Jill Pearson says
I am very happy my Blue Bloods is coming back in the Fall!! I am looking forward to seeing what happens to Linda (hoping she makes a full recovery; or she and Mayor Poole can do wheelchair races around One PP!). Also I’d love to see Abagail Baker’s story revealed. She is like an enigma. She has no life whatsoever! Of course it’s time for Jamie to make detective, this way he and Eddie can explore a romance. Can’t wait!
Luke B says
AH! I didn’t get to watch season 5 yet.
After all the hype, Battle Crrek is gone???? WHY? It really grew on me. Stalker was different, but couldn’t figure out where they could go next, plot wise. But, it too grew on me. I’d have kept them both. And CSI? What the ___? How can u cancel the best, the original? Better than Cyber which I’m still trying to kinda sorts like. I thought the actors were just, well, done. Not canceled I’ll never understand it. But thank god for the good old standbys. NCIS, NCIS LA & NO, etc.
I WOULD HAVE TO DIAGREE CSI:CYBER IS A GREAT SHOW but, I too wish that they would not cancel CSI they are both great shows. I always thought that they would renew CSI and have Grissom back and keep up with Nick in San Francisco as their head person. Hey I think I got an idea how about CSI: San Francisco because they had CSI:MAIMI and CSI:NEW YORK. but I can’t believe the didn’t renew CSI.
Happy to see more Undercover Boss. May I suggest the CEO visit their repair/mechanic shops especially in MD
jim abercrombie says
I think the studios networks need to change the rating age. Using 19 to 49 year age is not a real rating to use. 40ish and older year. old folk enjoy different shows than the 20 to 39 year old. I think 19 to 40 and 41 and up would be a better rating age. Let me know how you feel about this. Jim69
I HATE You, CBS!!! You purposely set up CSI to fail, by putting it on Sunday night! Then you take the one show that was just as good as CSI and cancel it after one season. You suck and you’ve lost me as a viewer!
I am so glad there will be another season of Elementary. There is a lot of rubbish on television and even more series you do not need to think, but Elementary is state of the art ! Thanks CBS for another season with Jonny and Lucy who make Sherlock and Watson modern, interesting and worth while. Sorry if my English is not that good, but I am a viewer from The Netherlands. Greetings !
Luke B says
Unfortunately I am busy on most Friday nights, but I watch every episode of BLUE BLOODS on NETFLIX! BLUE BLOODS FOR THE WIN!
Anabela Machado says
I am so excited that my shows are going to air soon Criminal Minds and NCIS
I’m happy cause they renewed CSI:CYBER, a show my husband and I watch when it airs, It’s a GREAT SHOW. We love CSI too it’s sad that they cancelled it maybe if we get enough fans maybe they will change their minds on CSI that would be great. Then it’s a win-win for us fans and their rating just put it on at another day instead of Sunday, they can put POI on another day and put CSI on after or before CSI:Cyber that would give them great ratings. CBS would be number 1 then cause they have great shows Criminal Minds, Hawaii 5-0, CSI:CYBER, POI, Blue Blood, NCSI and last but not least NCIS: New Orleans…
I love the NCIS shows, criminal minds, elementary, and CSI! The others are really good but the original is the best. I am SUPER disappointed in Forever and Perception being dropped as well as stalker. Gee we needed another version of Jurassic park in the Zoo and I am not a fan of mom or 2 broke girls. Disappointing… I wish they would stick with the types of series that we all come to this network to watch instead of trying to draw in the syfy and out there stuff. I know where that stuff is and I really like some of it, but I also know where I can find some really great investigative who done it’s that I LOVE. If they keep dropping them though I will find networks that will carry them or stop watching high priced satellite stations and save a lot of money with net flicks. Guess what network that wants the 20 year olds? It is those of us well over that age that pay most of their bills and decide what is watched in our homes… Look at the demographics. There are more and more 20 somethings living at home with parents because of the crazy economy and high prices of decent homes.
Bradley hale says
I think Betty White should be on the show for a couple episodes as Sister Rosita(Abby’s bowling nun friend)to help her through Gibbs being shot.She would be a great add for the cast,You could have her head slap and McGee and DiNozzo seeing the both claim to have attended catholic schools
LOVE BLUE BLOODS. KEEP IN ON FOREVER. LOVE THE SUNDAY DINNER AND THE CATHOLIC FAMILY. JUST WONDERFUL!!!!!
The perfect show for retrograde bigots.
carole dorman says
