Q Scores for primetime actors published on September 16, 2014. [source]

Calculating the Q Score
Each brand [actor] is rated on the following scale:
“One of My Favorites”“Very Good”“Good”“Fair”“Poor”————————————————————————“Never Seen or Heard of Before” 


The sum of the “One of My Favorites” through “Poor” scores is the “Total Familiar”.
The “One of My Favorites” score is an absolute measure of appeal or popularity, as it is based on 100%. However, some brands are not very well known and would, therefore, have a low “Favorite” score. 
Thus, the Q Score is developed in order to provide another way of evaluating the appeal of a lesser known brand. The Q Score, therefore, is a ratio of the “Favorite” score to the “Familiar” score. It answers the question: “How appealing is it among those who are familiar with it?” [source]

Some questions for the ncis fans out there PT1

mr-oshimaida:

About old characters and stuff, things I cant remember.

-Hollis Mann its transfered to Hawaii because of gov. Issues or bc she asked for it?
-What happened with Gibbs before she left? What made them break up? (I really dont remember this part).
-What happened to Gibbs’ Psych gf who had to ran from dc on s09? She was sweet and had a kid.
-Who actually killed La Grenouille?
-What happened with Jeanne?

Hi there! I’ll do my best to answer:

Hollis Mann went to Hawaii because she retired. Yeah, I know, she’s kind of young to retire, but in the US military, after twenty years you can retire and draw a pension. She was probably 45-50 years old. In Season 11 (the episode “Kill Chain”), she came back. Moved back to DC and took a job with the DOD; met a trauma surgeon and married him.

In the bullpen the guys told Bishop that Hollis just vanished. She decided that Gibbs “had a wall that wasn’t coming down” and she was frustrated. They didn’t actually have a break-up, she just disappeared.

Dr. Samantha Ryan, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, went into hiding with her son after her abusive, stalker ex-husband was released from prison because Harper Dearing bribed someone to let him out early.

The CIA agent Trent Kort alledgedly killed La Grenouille. In the Season 5 Episode “Internal Affairs,” he appears at NCIS with a paper that authorized the hit. La Grenouille was a CIA asset who wanted to ‘retire’ and they weren’t happy about that. BUT, the bullet recovered from the body matched Jenny Shepherd’s personal weapon, so it seems a little sketchy, like she might have done it and worked out some kind of “I’ll owe you one” deal with the CIA as a coverup.

In that same episode, Jeanne Benoit talks to Tony for the last time, as she is leaving the building. She had gone to the FBI, saying that she saw Tony shoot her father and was in the building to be interviewed. As she walks past, Ziva says, “Be a man Tony, tell her what she needs to hear.” When Tony talks to Jeanne, she asks, “Was any of it real?” He answers, “No.” (What that what she needed to hear?!? Her previous boyfriend had turned out to be a man she couldn’t trust. Isn’t she going to feel, for years at least, that she can’t trust her own judgement in relationships? I might be suicidal after what Tony put her through if I believed that he had been deceptive the entire time. Plus she found out that her father was an international arms dealer just before he was murdered. It’s a choice made by tptb which I’ve never gotten.) As the elevator door is closing, Jeanne is pale and looks like death warmed over, and she says, “I wish I’d never met you.” That’s the last we ever hear about her.

Just as an “in general” kind of thing, the showrunner, Gary Glasberg, likes to leave some loose threads or “seeds” which can be picked up seasons later if they want to.

This was fun, thanks. I’ve been washing walls and shampooing and it was a nice distraction while I waited for the pizza to come.

Thank you for posting this. I’m actually excited about Season 12 starting. And what I want is just good episodes, good cases. Sometimes when a show really works a ship, it just makes me tense. Unresolved Sexual Tension is, in my opinion, an overused device in shows. By definition, it’s unresolved and in general never meant to be resolved. NCIS tortured me with McAbby for, well, for over a decade, because Tim and Abby do still flirt from time-to-time and you can sense their closeness. They can back off on the tension stuff as far as I’m concerned and still make some good TV.

When a Navy Lieutenant is killed on his way to a private meeting with the President, the NCIS team must determine if the murder was part of a recent stream of muggings in the area or a targeted hit to keep intel secret, on NCIS, Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Tony Gonzalez, former NFL player and studio analyst for THE NFL TODAY on the Network and contributor for THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, guest stars as NCIS Special Agent Tony Francis.

Thursday Night Football commentators Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason, Tony Gonzalez and Eric Dickerson to Appear in “Elementary,” “Blue Bloods,” “NCIS” and “Hawaii Five-0”

CBS Primetime dramas will get into the football spirit this fall when NFL greats Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason, Tony Gonzalez and Eric Dickerson guest star in ELEMENTARY, BLUE BLOODS, NCIS and HAWAII FIVE-0. Following are details regarding their guest appearances (in order of airdate):

NCIS – Tony Gonzalez

Tony Gonzalez, analyst for THE NFL TODAY on CBS and contributor to the Network’s inaugural coverage of THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, will guest star as Special Agent Tony Francis, who is fishing for information on Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). The episode will air Tuesday, Sept. 30 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Gonzalez’s NFL career spanned 17 years, 12 with Kansas City and five with Atlanta. He is the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns (111) and yards (15,127) by a tight end. He also is the NFL’s all-time leader in consecutive starts (120) and Pro-Bowl appearances (14) by a tight end, and ranks second overall among all players in catches with 1,325. Gonzalez has missed only two games in his career.

BLUE BLOODS – Boomer Esiason

Boomer Esiason, an analyst for THE NFL TODAY on CBS, will appear as himself when he pays a visit to Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) at his office. Reagan thanks Esiason for his work with the Women and Kids Fundraiser and asks if there is anything he can do for him in return. Boomer then makes a request that even the Chief of Police will find difficult to grant. The episode will air Friday, Oct. 3 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).  Esiason quarterbacked the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals during his 14-year NFL career. Also, he earned four visits to the Pro Bowl and was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player by the Pro Football Writers of America and the Associated Press in 1988.  

 HAWAII FIVE-0 – Eric Dickerson

NFL Hall of Fame inductee Eric Dickerson will play himself when McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) runs into him in a bait shop on Oahu and takes a selfie with the football legend to make Danno (Scott Caan) jealous. The episode will air Friday, Oct. 31 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). During his 11-year career as a running back, Dickerson became the seventh in his position to gain more than 10,000 yards and the fastest ever to do so, reaching the milestone in just 91 games.

ELEMENTARY – Phil Simms

Phil Simms, lead NFL TODAY and THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL on CBS game analyst, will play himself as an associate of Sherlock’s (Jonny Lee Miller) who has a surprising, little-known talent. The episode will air Thursday, Nov. 13 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). As an All-Pro quarterback, Simms led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles during his 15-year career with the team. He completed 22 of 25 passes in Super Bowl XXI, as the Giants defeated the Denver Broncos 39-20, to win their first Super Bowl title. Simms was named MVP of that game.  He established team marks for most passes completed and attempted for one game (40 completed, 62 attempted), season (286 completed, 533 attempted) and career (2,576 completed, 4,647 attempted), most career touchdown passes (199) and most 300-yard games in a career (21).
