SPOILER ALERT! NCIS wrapped its eighth season last night, and with it, the Port-to-Port killer arc that not only buried recurring favorite Mike Franks (Muse Watson) but also forced the appointment of a new SECNAV (Secretary of the Navy), who’s already given Tony an assignment to handle a leak at the agency. Executive producer Gary Glasberg, who wrote the episode, phoned us to break it down. READ FULL STORY

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'
Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).
Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY

What a lovely day it is for television news, Roomies!
I’ll keep today’s usually-rambly intro short: You want scoop? Ask! All you have to do is email me at email@example.com or find me on Twitter (@EWSandraG), where you will see I’ve already started celebrating Supernatural‘s upcoming Western episode (see below for scoop!). Don’t see yours below? Come back Friday; there’s a good chance it might be there then.
‘SMALLVILLE': BOOSTER GOLD’S BIG ARRIVAL … AND BIG EGO
Smallville‘s better-than-ever farewell season continues Friday with the appearance of Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle/Jaime Reyes in an episode that will have both fans of the mythology and beloved Clois squealing in delight. As teased in previews, the episode indeed features an iconic phonebooth transformation (but not into the full tights-and-cape). The moment is all you’d hope it to be, but what got this nerd really excited? The steps that were taken toward creating a critical part of mythology: our hero’s name. Also great: Lois’ interactions with Jaime, Clark’s almost child-like reaction to Booster douche (who is actually as frustrating as he his hilarious), and the arrival of clumsy Kent. Take it all in, Smallville fans, because we’re in the homestretch. Luckily, the show’s been making it more than worth the 10-year investment. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' scoop: Matthew Willig on new agent's 'instant attraction' to Abby. What does this mean for McAbby?
Oh, no, McAbby fans! There’s trouble on the way — and he’s huge.
Former NFLer Matthew Willig (pictured, center) makes his debut tonight on NCIS as Special Agent Simon Cade, an intimidating genius with an eye for Abby. “There’s been some talk about a connection I may or may not have with Abby, and I think there’s something there,” he teases. “I’m a new agent in a new town and I’m looking for someone to show me around.” (Willig and fellow guest star Alimi Ballard’s arrival was first teased in Spoiler Room.)
And you can bet McGee “will definitely get jealous as time goes on,” Willig says. READ FULL STORY

The April 5 episode of CBS’ NCIS has been a long time coming for “Tiva” fans. We’ll finally meet Ziva’s CIA boyfriend Ray, played by Without a Trace‘s Enrique Murciano. “You never know if you’re gonna have chemistry, and since I had no say in the casting, I was sort of waiting to meet this famous Enrique Murciano,” Cote de Pablo says. “I had actually researched him. I looked him up on Google. I got as much information as I could. And then when I met him, it was kind of instant. We hit it off. He’s from Miami, I’m from Miami. He had me laughing immediately, and I’m a sucker for laughter, so that was it.” Wait. Back up. She really Googled him? “Ohmygod, I so Googled him,” she laughs.
The actress says we’ll see a new side to Ziva when Ray arrives in town. READ FULL STORY
Some juicy details have emerged about the much-anticipated Anthony DiNozzo origin episode that will air May 3 on NCIS: EW has learned exclusively that Scott Grimes (ER) will play Det. Danny Price, an ex-partner of Michael Weatherly’s character. The two worked together 10 years ago while serving as cops in Baltimore.
Grimes, who already announced his gig via Twitter, will appear in one episode.
Back in November, NCIS flashed back 20 years to finally reveal what happened in Amsterdam to shape Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll), and what led him to become the director (a question fans had been asking themselves for more than two seasons). To prepare for the episode, Carroll spent lots of time in the makeup trailer to shave the years off (for more on his transformation, click here).
Will Weatherly go through the same process? Is it even possible to make the guy hotter than he already is?
DiNozzo fans wanted. Follow me @EWLynette
