What to Watch this week: Video game-turned-series The Last of Us debut and Hunters go on final mission

CBS is staging a huge crossover with the NCIS-verse: The teams of NCIS, NCIS: Hawai'i, and NCIS: Los Angeles head to D.C. to celebrate one of their professors, who ends up dead. Their investigation then puts them in danger. Check out our full preview of the three-hour special event here, where stars LL Cool J, Chris O'Donnell, Vanessa Lachey, Gary Cole, and Wilmer Valderrama reveal what fans can expect.

Also on TV this week is the long-awaited debut of the video-game adaptation, The Last of Us, which takes place 20 years after the destruction of modern civilization and follows survives played by Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Melanie Lynskey, Nick Offerman, Storm Reid, and more.

Feeding off the Wordle craze, the CBS game show Lingo debuts, hosted by RuPaul — and there's a new episode of RuPaul's Drag Race season 15. Plus, new seasons of Servant, Vikings: Valhalla, Hunters, Your Honor, and Mayor of Kingstown.
