'NCIS' season 9 finale: Boss talks cliffhanger and how season 10 will (probably) begin!

Last night’s NCIS season finale was an explosive end to the season — because there was an actual explosion. And in the end, 18.7 million viewers were left wondering what would come of the team in season 10.

EW hopped on the phone with executive producer Gary Glasberg to chat about the big season ender — including what might come as a result of that big cliffhanger with longtime medical examiner Ducky, who had a heart attack in the final minutes of the episode. Read on for more:

'NCIS' finale tops Tuesday ratings; 'Got Talent' slips

ncis-finale_240.jpg

CBS revealed its new fall schedule this morning, and received some good news: The NCIS and NCIS: LA finales drove the network to first place Tuesday night in the ratings. NCIS (18.7 million viewers, 3.5) was up 13 percent this week and a two-hour LA (15.1 million, 3.0) was steady.

The second episode this season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent (10.4 million, 3.4) was down 8 percent from last year’s second outing and down the same amount from its Monday premiere. The upside is that being down 8 percent from 2011 is less than Monday’s 16 percent drop for the premiere. We’ll get a clearer idea of how well Got Talent holds up with Howard Stern as the show’s new judge once all the finale fireworks conclude on NBC’s rivals (last year’s edition started at the end of May). The finale of Fashion Star (4.9 million, 1.6) aired at 10 p.m. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' boss teases the team's high-stakes mission, the upcoming shocking season finale

At the end of last week’s episode of NCIS, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) took a picture of the team’s target, Harper Dearing (Richard Schiff), and stuck it over the picture of Osama bin Laden that hangs on the Most Wanted wall inside NCIS HQ. The message: Dearing is going down.

But first it’s going to take the team into a high-stakes fight against an incredibly dangerous adversary, says EP Gary Glasberg. “This arc is something that we’ve been talking about for a while,” he says of the terrorist plot. “And I think people are going to be, not only surprised, but really entertained by how it unfolds… Anytime that the team gets to work mode as a cohesive unit, people enjoy that and respond to it. That’s definitely the case in terms of this storyline.”

And if you think you know the full story: stay tuned. The upcoming final episodes will be more than your average cat-and-mouse game. As the story unfolds, he says, “there are so many elements to it that connect directly to Gibbs that explain a lot of the motivation on Harper Dearing’s part [and] that will connect to Jamie Lee Curtis and even connect to Scott Wolf’s character…A lot of planning has gone into it.” READ FULL STORY

'Private Practice' ratings fall in new time slot

ABC moved Private Practice to Tuesday night and the result was the show’s lowest-rated episode ever.

Untethered from its Grey’s Anatomy mothership, Practice delivered 6.8 million viewers and a 1.7 rating in the adult demo at 10 p.m. last night — a series low for the medical drama and down 19 percent from its last Thursday telecast a month ago. ABC moved Practice to make room for Shonda Rhimes’ latest drama, Scandal. On the plus side, the episode — ironically titled “It Was Inevitable” — won the 10 p.m. hour and improved just a tad over the average of Body of Proof in the slot.

ABC also had Last Man Standing (6.4 million, 1.6), Cougar Town (4.6 million, 1.4) — both series lows — and Dancing results show (13.8 million, 2.4). READ FULL STORY

'NCIS': Cote de Pablo previews Ziva's big reunion, a possible (Tony-related!) revelation

Tonight’s episode of NCIS brings Ziva face-to-face with her longtime mentor Monique Lisson (Karina Lombard), as she and Tony head to Colombia on a mission to search for a missing Marine, but will the reunion be all it’s cracked up to be?

“This relationship goes back a while and we see a hint of what I may have been like for these two women when they were operating together, but their relationship is different….she realizes there’s something off about her,” star Cote de Pablo tells EW.

Lisson, she explains, is a woman who’s sacrificed everything in her personal life for her career — she has no husband, children or social life to speak of. And as Ziva’s surrogate big sister, Lisson is on a bit of a mission separate from their case-of-the-week. “One of the things we discover as the episode goes through is that there are things that agent Monique is trying to tell Ziva about her choices in her life. A ‘learn from me’ sort of thing — as an older sister who has gone through it and as a woman who has lost a lot along the way,” she says.

Sean Astin previews 'NCIS' guest spot

He might have been part of one of the largest movie franchises of all time but Sean Astin says that in the world of acting, he still feels like a bit of a Lone Ranger. That, he says, is why when the chance came for him to join the NCIS family for a guest stint, he jumped at the opportunity.

NCIS is legendary for having a very close-knit, family-style, hard-working, professional team,” the former Lord of the Rings star says. “So being able to step in and participate with them, it makes you feel a little less like a free agent for a minute. It makes you feel like you’re a part of something.” READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Revenge': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies.

It’s that time of the week again, so I hope you enjoy some of the juicy tidbits in this week’s installment. And with finales just around the corner, I imagine it’s all just going to get juicier as the weeks tick by.

But on that note, if there’s something I’m missing, don’t hesitate to put in a scoop request! (spoilerroom@ew.com) And a million thank yous to those who already write in! Wait, let’s make that a thousand. We’re in a recession after all. I have to be prudent.

‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS': THREE BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

What’s better than an in-office visit from a Pretty Little Liar? If I may douchily answer myself: A visit from TWO Pretty Little Liars. And that’s exactly what happened to me yesterday when Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario stopped in to film a quick video (which I’ll share with you Monday!), make me laugh (you’ll see…), and answer some of your burning questions!

'NCIS' finale scoop: Jimmy Palmer's wedding party heads to... -- EXCLUSIVE

We’ve been building up to the NCIS wedding all season, and it’s almost here! But Jimmy Palmer’s much-awaited nuptials, which take place during the season finale, won’t be set in D.C. Nope, the team’s going on the road for the big event and headed to…

Florida!

“Breena’s character is from Florida, so the plan is to have this wedding in Florida,” executive producer Gary Glasberg reveals to EW exclusively. “The whole team will, in theory, all head down for that and at the same, time be dealing with some significant stuff back in D.C. It’ll be a juggling act between the two.”

Still in the process of being written, the finale will pit the team against a “unique” adversary that will challenge the team in a way we haven’t seen before, he adds.”This one will be a little different because it’s going to be more focused on the Navy and more about the fleet. Someone’s targeting Navy ships,” he says. “I like to pull things back periodically. I don’t want to forget that NCIS is a Navy-related show. I know that that’s important to our military overseas and a lot of our viewers. I think they’ll enjoy this sort of twist in the storyline.”

But will this twist include a body count? Glasberg’s understandably coy, but says, “There’s some danger involved and we’ll have to see where that puts our team. There’ll be a cliffhanger and we’ll see what’s left when we come back.”

How ominous!

NCIS returns with new episodes March 20.

'Once Upon a Time,' 'New Girl,' 'NCIS,' 'How I Met Your Mother': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hello from the road, Roomies!

Of course, I’m not actually typing while driving in Los Angeles — that would be scary. But I am currently enjoying the sunshine in L.A. while covering PaleyFest and having a lovely time. The best part of it all? I get to bring all the fun straight to you. If you haven’t checked it out, make sure you bookmark EW’s PaleyFest hub and follow me on Twitter as we head into the final stretch of panel fun. Today I’m headed to Castle, with Vampire Diaries and Revenge to follow this weekend.

But enough from me, here’s what you came for: Fresh scoop straight from the red carpet and some fun bits from my time on set at NCIS, HIMYM, and Grey’s Anatomy. (More to come from all these, too!)

‘ONCE UPON A TIME': ANSWERS AND APPLES ‘RED AS BLOOD’

The magical first season of Once Upon a Time is set to wrap up in May, but don’t ask for the last episode’s title. “We’re debating it,” said co-executive producer Adam Horowitz. “We’ve run out — that’s it. We can’t think of a title now,” fellow co-EP Edward Kitsis joked.

But the penultimate episode is a different story. I’ll let you theorize exactly what the title “Apple Red as Blood,” means, but I can tell you that it’s part of a final arc that will focus heavily on the major players rather than stand-alone stories — like the heartwarming one we saw this week with Grumpy. “Next week is who the big bad wolf is. And then we just take off,” said Kitsis. READ FULL STORY
