Many “NCIS” viewers started pointing out months ago that stars Pauley Perrette and Mark Harmon were no longer appearing together on screen: They didn’t even share a stage for Perrette’s final episode last week. The reason goes back to an incident in 2016 in which Harmon’s dog bit a member of the crew, requiring 15 stitches, and Perrette objected when the dog was allowed to return to the set afterward, according to multiple individuals familiar with the situation. For years, the banter between Harmon’s seen-it-all special agent, Gibbs, and Perrette’s free-spirited forensic scientist, Abby, fueled the military procedural.
Pauley Perrette may be leaving “NCIS” next Tuesday, May 8, after 15 years on the show, but the woman who has played goth forensic scientist Abby Sciuto since 2003 won’t be leaving America’s hearts anytime soon.

Opting to cash in on a little of that enthusiastic goodwill he accumulated from Mr. Robot’s fascinating, often exciting, always imaginative first season, show creator Sam Esmail places a large bet in the two-part second-season premiere on Wednesday night: He gives us a Mr. Robot that’s almost as paralyzed as the world economy that Rami Malek’s Elliot crashed in the first-season finale.
You know how Donald Trump seems to say or do something unexpected almost every day?

From the folks who brought you the re-make of Hawaii Five-O comes the re-make of MacGyver, whose logo uses a Swiss Army knife for the “v” in its title, so you know it’s clever. There’s a level on which this sitcom is just a reworking of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing.

The Emmys, of course, have categories to honor variety talk series, as well as their writing, directing, lighting, picture editing, etc. But there’s no category to single out late night hosts (just reality TV ones). With David Letterman and Jon Stewart both effectively retiring, they’d be the sentimental favorites, but also deserving.
