'NCIS': Cote de Pablo previews Ziva's revenge in Spoiler Room -- VIDEO

Last week’s NCIS was an incredibly sad hour that left two familiar faces dead and the entire team craving revenge.

And when Cote de Pablo stopped by EW’s offices last week, she previewed the fallout from the loss of her father Eli and Vance’s wife for this week’s Spoiler Room video. “[Ziva] is filled with all sorts of anger and grief that will probably steer her in a direction that I’ll gladly play,” she said with a laugh.

There’s no shortage of reasons to stay indoors and watch TV this week, people.

If you, like all the stars at the Golden Globes, have the super flu, you should probably remain locked in your batcave to avoid infecting others, and if you don’t have the super flu, well, why risk it?

If you need more motivation than that (why would you?) check out this week’s column for teases on some of the fun stuff in store on your favorite shows. Your fave not here? Make sure you send in your questions! (spoilerroom@ew.com)

The gift that keeps on giving: EW's Christmas Eve TV marathon guide

This holiday season, we’re presenting you with the gift that keeps on giving… a guide to Christmas Eve TV marathons. From TBS’ annual 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon (this year marks the marathon’s 15th anniversary) to Bravo’s 11 hours of The Real Housewives of Orange County (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), there’s something out there for holiday purists and holiday Grinches alike.

High Holiday
In addition to TBS’ 24-hour Christmas Story fest, starting at 8 p.m., AMC has lined up a full day of holiday programming from 9:15 a.m. to tomorrow at 2 a.m. With specials including All I Want for Christmas, A Christmas Carol, and Miracle on 34th Street, you’ll be able to fulfill your yuletide quota in a single sitting. Over at ABC Family — a.k.a. Christmas central — The Santa Clause trilogy starring Tim Allen will be broadcast from 3 to 9 p.m. The only thing the films are missing is a sage advice-doling, wisecracking neighbor. Allen’s character Scott Calvin could have really used a Wilson during the man-to-Santa transition period.

Odd Jobs
On your long-deserved day off, it’s only fitting that you watch reality shows about unconventional jobs. If you’re in the mood for “Chinese turkey,” join the duck party on A&E. Catch up on Duck Dynastythe network’s most popular show — with this mini-marathon from 8 p.m. to tomorrow at 4 a.m. The wealthy Christian family of Louisiana woodworkers are akin to the holy family, after all. It may be too early to get drunk, but you can live vicariously through your favorite Moonshiners on Discovery from 9 a.m. to tomorrow at 3 a.m. To prepare yourself to receive that rare antique gift tomorrow, watch 20 hours worth of History’s Pawn Stars (beginning at 8 a.m.), about your favorite 24-hour pawn shop. If these jobs aren’t quirky enough for your taste, TLC is offering a 13-hour marathon (from 2 p.m. to 3 a.m.) of Long Island Medium. The special also includes a catch-up session with past clients, an audience Q&A, and new footage from past episodes. Okay, so a pastry chef isn’t an odd job, but Cake Boss will be a treat in between the Southern booze and blues. Watch Buddy and the crew whip up delicious concoctions from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on TLC.

Police Procedurals
For a full day of maniacal merriment, flip to TNT for The Mentalist from 12 to 8 p.m. or USA for NCIS from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. It’s a tough call between these two crime procedurals so you have to ask yourself, “Am I in the mood for Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) or Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly)?” Both tough, steely men are softies at heart, so you can’t go wrong.

Our Picks
For the game lover: After a Minute to Win It marathon from 8 a.m. to  6 p.m., GSN will air six straight hours of Family Feud. What better way to bond with your brood over the holidays than by watching other families make fools of themselves on national TV? You’ll more intelligent after an hour of programming.

For the science fiction lover: Science’s Firefly spree from 7 a.m. to tomorrow at 2 a.m. is the way to go. Make sure to have a pen and paper handy to jot down some of those Chinese profanities.

For the sitcom lover: Sure, she may have recently gone nuts, but Roseanne Barr was historical in Roseanne. Catch the Conners on WE from 10 a.m. to tomorrow at 5:30 a.m.

For the history buff: Before watching Quentin Tarantino’s revenge fantasy/slave drama Django Unchained (in theaters Christmas day), check out the miniseries Roots on BET from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. for a more historically-accurate take.

For the voyeurs: If watching people squirm is your pastime, then Undercover Boss (11 a.m. to tomorrow at 2 a.m. on DFH) is the TV marathon for you. You might want to keep it to a minimum though or you’ll be paranoid all day at work come Dec. 26.

'NCIS': Michael Weatherly teases tonight's Christmas episode

Tonight’s episode of NCIS has what star Michael Weatherly calls “a very exciting moment in the evolution” of Tony DiNozzo — we step into his apartment for the very first time.

And while many of the surprises it contains can’t be discussed prior to the episode, Weatherly teases that there will be “revealing pieces” that tell us a lot about the character now — and possibly in the future. “The writers…came up with a phenomenal array of indicators for Tony’s psychological state,” he says.

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Fringe,' 'Supernatural,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s October!! Holy muffins. How did that happen?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on my end. First, there was the Emmys, immediately followed by a series of set visits in Vancouver that sucked the life out of me in the best way possible. Now I’m back in New York, fall is in full swing, new shows are beginning to stick (and others, not so much), and hopefully we’re all enjoying having DVRs full of goodness. I know I am.

So let’s get to it. Remember to be sending me your scoop requests (spoilerroom@ew.com) and follow me on Twitter for witty commentary and TV news. Also, if you’re emailing, take a second to tell me your favorite new show of the fall. This is an informal poll, but I’m really curious what scoop you might be craving in the near future. Time for some dish. Nom. Nom. Nom.

‘FRINGE': FOUR TEASES FROM THE SET
There’s no place as wonderfully warm and weird as the set of Fringe. A few journos and I had the pleasure of visiting the gang in Vancouver last week, and when I wasn’t handing out EWwy awards, I was gathering some fun little intel for fans of the mind-bending cult fave. (If you haven’t read the post-mortem from Friday, head here.) READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' season premiere: Boss sounds off on Tony/Ziva, Gibbs' showdown

Last night’s season premiere of NCIS was full of action in every way. There was a manhunt and death (RIP Harper Dearing), an epic showdown (Dearing versus Gibbs), romantic tension (Tiva!), and a dozen other great moments. So we got executive producer Gary Glasberg on the phone to talk about all the action and take a peek at what’s to come this season. (Hint: counseling, parental drama, and an epic two-parter.)

'Glee,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' '90210,' 'Bones,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

We’re only one week into season/series premieres and I want to share some embarrassing figures:

4: Number of times I cried during Parenthood‘s premiere.
3: Number of dinners eaten straight out of a container/box because I was too lazy/tired to cook.
1: Times I teared up during Glee (Lea Michele’s phone call KILLED me.)
4: Times I shouted at the TV during Sons of Anarchy‘s premiere.
~22: Number of times I laughed out loud during the New Normal. (I’m guessing it was once per minute)

My point? The fall TV season is already starting off AMAZING, and it’s only going to go up from here. Can’t wait? Not to worry; I have some nice scoop to hold you over until then. Enjoy!

(And don’t forget to keep in touch! E -mail questions to spoilerroom@ew.com or on Twitter @EWSandraG. Also, if you’re so inclined, share some numbers of your own below. Purely for my entertainment, of course.)

‘GLEE': FIVE MINI-SCOOPS

From what I can tell, Glee fans seem a little split on the new season. (Also, the Grand Canyon is a kinda big and cookies are sorta delicious.) So, in an effort to please as many people as possible, I’ve included a little scoop for everyone below. For more, check out this Glee post from earlier this week. Enjoy (and play nice, please)!

+ WHERE’S MS. PILLSBURY!? Around. And we’ll see her quite soon, Matthew Morrison promises. In fact, he says, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Will and Emma’s home life than you might think based on the first episode. “We have never seen them actually living together, and now they’re living together this season, cohabitating under one roof,” he says. “It should be interesting. It’s not as easy as I think he thought it was going to be!”

+ SKIN ALERT: Chord Overstreet claims he has a shirtless scene in episode 3. You’re welcome.

+ MORE BIEBER ON THE WAY? It’s no secret that I fell deeply in love with Overstreet’s version of “Baby.” And he says there’s a good chance there’s more Bieber in the works! “I’m a big fan of ‘As Long As You Love Me’ right now. [I] may be doing a couple of mash-ups of some different stuff — and maybe some acoustic stuff,” he says.

+ WHEN THE TWO PUCKERMANS MEET…expect fireworks. “It’s definitely kind of shocking for them both initially,” says Jacob Artist, who says we’ll soon see Puck come face-to-face with his half-brother. “Puck has never met [my character], and I’ve never met Puck. Obviously, the confrontation — there’s a lot of tension going on…it’s definitely a touchy moment for the both of them. [The outcome] definitely affects them.”

+ LOVE TRIANGLE NO. 100000000 Glee loves love triangles. I love a good one, too. And it sounds like Puck Jr. could be involved in one of the many we’ll see this season. “Jake is definitely going to have some romantic drama going on. He’s interested in the new ladies,” Artist says. “I think [he's looking] for somebody that can balance him out. He can be a little crass — so I think [he wants] somebody that can balance him [out].” Any guesses, gang?

‘90210’: 100th EPISODE SCOOP!
90210 will hit a big milestone this year — 100 episodes! That’s no small feat in TV land, and what better way to mark the occasion than with Homecoming Weekend! Showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen recently gushed to me about this super-packed episode when we hopped on the phone ahead of the show’s upcoming premiere on Oct. 8.

“We get to go back and re-live a few memories.” Carr said. “And we also have things getting bigger and more out of hand. We got to the Playboy mansion, we have musical performers, and some very revealing moments for our cast.” Also expect some “fan favorites” to pop up.

But, adds Carr: “It’s not just the clip show where they all remember and come out of it unaffected. They’re all profoundly affected by what happens.”

Another treat? Denise Richards, who, as EW previously reported, will appear as an alum-turned-socialite. “There’s so much happening in the 100th episode, I don’t know how we’re going to fit it all in one episode,” says Olsen. Carr jokes: “Maybe it will be a two-part 100th episode — 99.5/100.”

‘GREY’S ANATOMY': QUICK HITS FROM KEVIN MCKIDD
True story: I adore Kevin McKidd. Not only is he a hard-working guy — currently, he’s editing the fourth episode of the season, which he directed — but he’s a massively good teaser. And while I’m going to wait to share our full convo with you, here are some really tasty bits from our chat. (And, yes, this is a totally mean way for me to do this. But, you have to admit, it’s also a little fun — for me):

SG: Is the cheating issue from last season still hanging over Owen and Cristina this season?
KM: I think we’ve kind of blown past that in a way because the cataclysmic events of what happened, especially everything with Cristina. It’s going to come back and affect Owen as well — even though he wasn’t on the plane. In retrospect, it’s going to come back and really affect him in a big way too and in a way that we don’t expect.

SG: We know that not all of the doctors are going to be working at Seattle Grace in the first episode (which is a flashforward). Obviously you can’t say who, but is it safe to assume that Owen and Christina are still in the same place working on these issues together?
KM: That is not safe to assume…[truncated]

SG: Let’s talk about the flashbacks.
KM: I can’t really say too much because that would be giving stuff away. Flashbacks are featured heavily in episode two and may appear in other ones.

SG: Did any of the characters reactions to the crash surprise you? 
KM:…the writers have kind of turned everything on its head and under duress and under stress people do act in a way out of character…

Look for my full chat with McKidd, where he talks about directing and the new season, on Sept. 27, the day of the big season premiere!

‘NCIS': THERAPY FOR THE GANG?

The NCIS team has been through a lot of tough times together — but could the aftermath of last year’s finale explosion include some deep emotional and psychological consequences? That’s what one guest star will be tasked with finding out in the second episode of the upcoming tenth season. “A head-shrinker is coming to assess the mental status of our people,” star Michael Weatherly reveals. “And I don’t think anyone on this team should ever get looked at too closely by a psychiatrist.” READ FULL STORY
