Some people just cannot ever be replaced. That is how many people feel about Cote de Pablo on NCIS. The thing is, she left the show, and sometimes we just all need to move on. Last night was the first time her replacement, Ellie Bishop played by Emily Wickersham, was on the show. Not replacement [&hellip

We'll finally be able to see how she fits in with the "NCIS" team when Nsa Analyst Ellie Bishop makes her first appearance on the show in tonight's (Nov. 19) episode, "Gut Check." As we can see in the clip of her introduction, she's definitely as smart as Ziva, but the characters' vibes are completely different. Ellie is more of the quirky savant type, and that is most definitely not what Ziva's like.
She's quirky. She's cute. She's your new leading lady! NCIS fans will finally be introduced to Emily Wickersham's character Ellie Bishop in tonight's episode of the longrunning CBS hit drama, with The Sopranos star set to fill the leading lady void left by the exit of Cote de Pablo in the beginning of the season. Though she was originally cast for a three-episode arc, the NCIS creative team liked Wickersham (and Bishop, obviously!) so much they promoted her to series regular three weeks before her debut. Talk about making a good impression! And now we finally get to see Wickersham in action as new agent Bishop in action as we've got a sneak peek at her NCIS debut...but is she a suspect rather »
This week's episode of NCIS (8/7c, CBS) introduces Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham), the character who's been brought in to replace Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), who departed the series earlier this season. But showrunner Gary Glasberg wants longtime fans to rest assured that the show won't be changing that much, despite the presence of a new kid on the block.
"At the end of the day, it's not so much about reinventing or doing anything that different," Glasberg tells TVGuide.com. "NCIS is still NCIS. All of the dynamics are there. ... The vibe of the show is the same, the chemistry is the same, the tone is the same. It's just that we've got this new character and she brings something new to the party."

We have good news for those of you who were rooting for Emily Wickersham as she joined NCIS to test as a potential replacement for Cote de Pablo’s Ziva. The actress took on a recurring status for three yet-to-be-aired episodes, with her character under consideration for a full time placement on Team Gibbs. While we have yet to see any of Wickersham’s episodes, she must have past her tests with flying colors because it’s been announced that she’s been made a series regular. Good on you if you stuck behind her without seeing how she meshes with the team and shame on you if you doubted her!
Wickersham’s promotion was confirmed by Variety and we will see her in action come Nov. 19. She’ll be playing Nsa analyst Eleanor Bishop, an idealistic and determined specialist in international assessment and preparation. She’s a bright, educated, »

CBS announced on Monday (Nov. 4) that Wickersham, who is joining the series as Nsa Analyst Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, has been upped to series regular. In mid-September, when Wickersham's casting as a potential replacement for de Pablo's departing Ziva David was announced, it was revealed to only be a three episode deal with an option to be made regular. It appears the actress' work has made herself enough fans to exercise that option early.
"Emily Wickersham's Emily Bishop is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team," Ep Gary Glasberg said in a statement. "Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Great things are planned for Bishop and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her on board."

Emily Wickersham (The Sopranos, The Bridge) has been named a new regular on CBS’ flagship drama NCIS. Wickersham, who will fill the void left by the departure of co-star Cote de Pablo, was originally tapped for a three-episode arc. She is now being made full blown regular ahead of her Nov. 19 debut on the show. Wickersham plays Nsa Analyst Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation. She will be introduced when it is discovered the Secretary of the Navy was bugged during a confidential briefing, a security breach Bishop described in exact detail two years ago in a threat analysis report. Working side-by-side with Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the team, Bishop cross-examines the case file to help determine who is behind the crime. “Emily Wickersham’s Ellie Bishop is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team, »

First, Cote de Pablo exits NCIS and now this? The heart can only take so much. Tonight, NCIS: Los Angeles celebrates 100 episodes, and when we spoke to the cast about reaching that milestone they dropped a bombshell on us. By the end of this season, someone on the cast won't be around anymore. What is happening on these CBS acronym shows?! "What I heard is that there will be a character leaving at the end of this season, or towards the end of this season," Daniela Ruah reveals to us. "That's what I've heard. I don't know who it is. It might be me! Who knows?" It turns out that not even the main cast feels safe, because when we talked to LL Cool J about the future of the show, »
Now, TV Fanatic staff members Steve Marsi, Douglas Wolfe and Christine Orlando have assembled for our weekly Round Table Q&A discussion of various events and topics from the installment.
Join in as we analyze the first episode sans Ziva David, Twitter and more from this hour ...
1. How would you describe this week in one word (or two, or three, or four)?
Doug: Too close for comfort.
Steve: No credentials at concerts!
2. What was your favorite quote or scene from the episode?
Doug: I enjoyed Gibbs' little dig at Eugene when McGee escaped his clutches over the investigation into the loss of his credentials. "Yeah we'll get back to you on that, Eugene." Gibbs knows a stuffed shirt when he sees one, and has little tolerance for them.
Christine: Can I »

Looks like Ziva took some viewers with her.
NCIS' first Ziva-less episode Tuesday pulled in 17.9 million viewers and a 2.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, dropping almost a full point from Cote de Pablo's farewell last week. A Voice recap show (10 million, 2.9) and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (7.7 million, 2.8), which fell three tenths, both edged it out.
NBC topped the ...

NBC and CBS split leadership on the third Tuesday of the season, a night that saw ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” decline further but edge out “NCIS” among young adults. Most shows were down week to week, with Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” joining ABC’s “Trophy Wife” in bucking the trend.
CW had a good night with the timeslot premiere of rookie “The Originals” and the season premiere of vet “Supernatural” on its new night, which combined for the network’s top-rated Tuesday in two years.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC led Tuesday in adults 18-49 thanks to a two-hour “The Voice” recap of the best blind auditions this season. It was down more than 30% from last week’s episode of first-run blind auditions. NBC had intended “The Biggest Loser” to bow last night but delayed it to get more “Voice” on »

Did NCIS leave some viewers behind in Israel with Ziva…?
TV’s most watched (and now Cote de Pablo-less) drama this Tuesday drew 18.3 million total viewers and a 2.8 demo rating (updated per finals), dropping 10 and 23 percent week-to-week.
In turn, ABC’s Agents of Shield (7.9 mil/2.9), though down 11 and 15 percent itself, edged out the CBS procedural in the demo — and all opposite a low-rated Voice clip show (10.2 mil/3.0), mind you.

Among the night’s premieres, The CW’s Supernatural christened its new Tuesday home with 2.59 million total viewers (its most watched premiere since 2010) and a 1.2 rating (its »

Ziva has left the building. (Or, if you want to get technical, she never returned to the building.)
But even though we’ve seen the last of Cote de Pablo for the foreseeable future, there’s plenty of action to come on NCIS, according to executive producer Gary Glasberg. Part of it, he says, will be seen in tonight’s episode, which he’ll give you scoop on in our interview below, among many other things…
Entertainment Weekly: Obviously this was such a huge moment for the series and for the team — can you talk about what’s going to »

NCIS fans can all take a breather now that the tear-jerking farewell of Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) is behind us, but just as we can’t quite shake the memory of the beloved character, we’ll see our NCIS team react in much the same way in this evening’s episode, “Under The Radar.”
Executive Producer and showrunner Gary Glasberg explained to me yesterday how they went about crafting the first episode minus Ziva, what emotionally might be coming for Gibbs and he supplied some intel on the just-announced NCIS spinoff that will be set in New Orleans.
TV Fanatic: Were there also challenges with "Under the Radar" because it’s the first Ziva-less episode? How much do you focus on it, how much you don’t? She’s still very present in the episode.
Gary Glasberg: Well, she continues to be, I guess, present is a good way of putting it. »
