NCIS Spoilers: Tony & Ziva To Reunite Despite New Love Interest For Tony? http://insidepulse.com/2014/08/14/ncis-spoilers-tony-ziva-to-reunite-despite-new-love-interest-for-tony/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/08/14/ncis-spoilers-tony-ziva-to-reunite-despite-new-love-interest-for-tony/#comments Thu, 14 Aug 2014 21:00:08 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=364922 While NCIS fans of Tony & Ziva were concerned about a new love interest for their favourite guy… there is now hope.

While the show’s executive producer said that DiNozzo would be getting a new love interest and that the door was always open for Cote de Pablo to return to the show, Michael Weatherly practically guaranteed a reunion when he recently spoke to TVGuide.com

“I’m sure they will see other again,” he said with regard to a Tony and Ziva reunion. “I am deeply fascinated by what kind of fireworks would result,” Weatherly says. “I absolutely know that it would not be without an explosive quality.”

NCIS To Kick Off New Season With A Bang http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/23/ncis-to-kick-off-new-season-with-a-bang/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/23/ncis-to-kick-off-new-season-with-a-bang/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:00:14 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=358382 NCIS season premiere will be everything that the finale wasn't...]]> Last season’s NCIS finale was used primarily to tie up loose ends as Ziva was written out, Bishop was written in, the seeds were sewn for a spin-off and Ralph Waite’s death was explained. As a result, the show didn’t really finish with the kind of finale that its fans have come to expect.

Showrunner Gary Glasberg says that the premiere will be quite different. In an interview with TVLine, Glasberg says that the Sept. 23 was designed to be the opposite and as shocking as possible.

“We’ve got a really significant season opener that brings Gibbs and McGee to Russia for a really big story. A crisis comes up and we immediately launch with a significant adversary who will pop up throughout the rest of the season,” he said.

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – Second Round Voting Begins with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 11:00:49 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352791 The first round voting has ended and there were a few upsets. But like I said from the beginning the numbers next to show names don’t mean a whole lot if they don’t get voted to the next round. There were also lots of close match ups. Quite a few match ups came down to a single vote. Lets take a look at the first round action.

The ABC Region saw two “upsets”. #4 Glee lost to Eastbound and Down with 60% of the vote. #5 Survivor had a bigger loss to Doctor Who, who won with 73% of the vote. The Walking Dead dominated as expected with a 90% win. Most of the rest of the match ups weren’t all that close. The only close match up was #3 New Girl barely getting by Bates Motel with a 54% win.

The FOX Region also saw the same two “upsets” as the ABC Region. #4 Downton Abbey lost by 63% to Arrested Development. #5 Chicago Fire also lost by 64% to Person of Interest. #1 Burn Notice, #2 Modern Family, #8 Family Guy, and South Park all dominated with over 80% wins. But the rest of the match ups in this region were extremely close. Revolution beat Falling Skies by 1 vote. Mike & Molly also won by 1 vote over White Collar. #3 The Blacklist barely survived over The Simpsons by 3 votes. Workaholics pulled off a third upset in this region by beating #7 2 Broke Girls by 2 votes. This was by far the closest and most upset region.

The CBS Region only had one upset. #6 Duck Dynasty lost by 2 votes to Sullivan & Son. #1 Breaking Bad dominated with a 88% win. #5 Game of Thrones won by a even larger 93%. But #2 How I Met Mother had the biggest margin of the victory in the first round with 94%. Homeland also had a big margin of victory. Most of the rest of the match ups were closer. The Vampire Diaries won by 1 vote over The Newsroom. True Blood won by 1 vote over The Daily Show. Nashville won by 2 votes over CSI. The Following also won by 4 votes over Rookie Blue.

The NBC Region was the only region to have no upsets, but most of the match ups were either really close or blowouts. #8 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., #5 NCIS, and #6 Sons of Anarchy had over 90% wins each. Revenge, #3 Pretty Little Liars, #1 Big Bang Theory, and Community also had big 80% wins. But #4 Grey’s Anatomy and #2 Scandal were almost upset. Grey’s Anatomy beat Ray Donovan by 3 votes, and Scandal beat Men at Work by only 58% of the vote. NCIS: Los Angeles beat Supernatural by only 1 vote. Other close match ups included The Colbert Report with a 4 vote victory over Elementary, Last Man Standing with a 3 vote win over The Millers, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine with a 4 vote victory over Vikings.

So a few surprises in the first round, and a few upsets. One thing is for sure, reality shows were not treated very kindly in this tournament. Only two of them have moved on to the second round. But now things could get interesting. The second round voting has begun. We have 64 shows left, so go vote and remember to tell everyone you know to vote too!

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the first round, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

Now on with the matchups and let the voting begin!

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – First Round Voting Continues with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/#comments Tue, 01 Apr 2014 21:43:18 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352610 It is time once again for the annual Inside Pulse TV Tournament. Get out your green beer! The biggest and most talked about tournament during the “March Madness” season is back! So stop working or pretending to work and take a look at this year’s bracket.

It’s been two years since the last “Best TV Show” tournament, but so much has changed in the world of TV. Roughly one-third of the shows that were in the 2012 “Best TV Show” tournament are no longer on the air. In addition, cable television and premium channel shows have gotten better while network television shows have stayed about the same. Maybe that is why for the first time last year all of the dramas nominated for an Emmy were not on network television. Lets not forget that this past year Netflix and Amazon have jumped into the original television scene as well. They have released some critically acclaimed shows that can’t be ignored. So lets get to this year’s tournament.

There are 128 shows in this year’s tournament, and believe it or not, it was tough to narrow it down that much. To qualify for this year’s tournament, a show had to have aired a new episode since June 2013. So that automatically disqualifies a few shows from HBO and SHOWTIME and a few cable shows who won’t be back with new seasons until later this year.

There are 32 seeded shows in the tournament. The seeds were selected based on four different criteria: live ratings, DVR ratings, awards, and most-talked about. If a show was watched by a lot people LIVE or on DVR within a few days; it was talked about a lot the next day on social networks; and it got nominated for awards, it likely was selected as a higher seed. The seeds really don’t mean a whole lot, though. If a show is better, just vote for that show.

A few more things before you get to the bracket. Just like the real NCAA Tournament, there were some automatic qualifying shows. They might have been in lesser conferences i.e. networks, but they each won their network tournament to earn a spot in the championship tournament. So you will see a few shows from each of the “lesser” cable networks with more from the “upper” cable and premium networks. But the majority of shows come from ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, and CW. Even with 128 shows, I’m sure there are still some of your favorites that didn’t make it into the field. But the majority of your favorites should be there. Take a look at the bracket yourself by going here:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

As you can see there are four different regions with 8 top seeds each, and 24 other shows. There are 64 matchups in the first round that need YOUR votes! So the time is now. Tell all your friends. It’s up to YOU to VOTE for which show you think is the best on TV. Make sure to vote for all the matchups as every vote counts.

CBS’ NCIS Dominates Tuesday Ratings While ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Stays Third In Timeslot, But Makes Significant Drop http://insidepulse.com/2013/10/04/cbs-ncis-dominates-tuesday-ratings-while-abcs-marvels-agents-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-stays-third-in-timeslot-but-makes-significant-drop/ http://insidepulse.com/2013/10/04/cbs-ncis-dominates-tuesday-ratings-while-abcs-marvels-agents-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-stays-third-in-timeslot-but-makes-significant-drop/#comments Fri, 04 Oct 2013 17:00:44 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=341199 Tuesday nights continue to be the best night for TV programming.

The 8 p.m. timeslot is the one to watch with CBS’ ratings juggernaut NCIS going head to head with much hyped new ABC drama, spinning off of mega popular Marvel Studios film Avengers, in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

According to By The Numbers:

    “NCIS” is the Most-Watched Show of the Night and Tops “Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in Adults 18-49…

    …CBS won Tuesday in viewers for the second consecutive week and was second in key demographics, led by NCIS, the most-watched show of the night, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for Oct. 1.

    NCIS was first in viewers (19.33m) and second in both adults 25-54 (4.5/12) and adults 18-49 (3.4/11) – both placing ahead of ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”. NCIS was the night’s #1 program in viewers.

The one-third or 30% decline in viewership by ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is more steep than usual for second episode drops usually in the 10 to 15% range. New NBC’s drama The Blacklist starring James Spader on Mondays, another new drama and a fave of mine, dropped by 13% by comparison. The Blacklist averaged 12.08m viewers and a 3.6 rating with adults 18-49.

It is also interesting to note that NCIS did better in the key 18-49 demographic than last week when Marvel Agents of Shield won the key demographic, but lost overall viewership to TV’s #1 drama NCIS.

Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a fun and action-packed show. This second episode slump may be an aberration against NCIS’ season 11 second episode that marked the exit of lead female character Ziva David played by Cote De Pablo.

DVR views of Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could get viewers caught up with the show and, as they say, next week is another week.

Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome. :)

CBS’ NCIS Decisively Beats ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Head-To-Head, But SHIELD Has Strongest New Drama Debut In Years http://insidepulse.com/2013/09/26/cbs-ncis-decisively-beats-abcs-marvels-agents-of-shield-head-to-head-but-shield-has-strongest-new-drama-debut-in-years/ http://insidepulse.com/2013/09/26/cbs-ncis-decisively-beats-abcs-marvels-agents-of-shield-head-to-head-but-shield-has-strongest-new-drama-debut-in-years/#comments Thu, 26 Sep 2013 12:00:34 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=340663 Variety is reporting that at the Tuesday 8 p.m. timeslot on September 24, 2013, CBS’ NCIS continued its rating dominance as the #1 drama on TV followed by NBC’s The Voice, with ABC’s Avengers film offspring Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD coming up a respectable third.

    “In Nielsen national estimates released later Wednesday, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” grew to a 4.7/14 in 18-49 and 12.12 million viewers overall. Other changes from the prelims for Big Four programs: “NCIS” grew two ticks to a 3.6/11 while hitting 20.02 million viewers, its third largest season-opening audience in its 11 seasons; NBC’s “The Voice” edged up (4.7/13 in 18-49, 14.35m) while “Chicago Fire” edged down (2.7/8 in 18-49, 8.70m); ABC’s “The Goldbergs” came down slightly (3.1/8 in 18-49, 8.94m); no Fox show budged in 18-49.”

While the Avengers film TV spinoff came in at third, Variety also notes that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’s debut rating:

    “…makes “SHIELD” the top drama premiere on any network since ABC’s “V” in November 2009 — and the best for any 8 p.m. drama since “Lost” in 2004.”

Will ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD shed or gain viewers next Tuesday? NCIS bucked the trend of shedding viewers and has spent 11 years clawing to the top and then staying there.
