Get your Reel TV news!

Be sure to check out his new cameo on the February 17 episode! Also, while fans originally thought that Steve Carell would be finishing up the season before peacing out of The Office for good, it looks like we'll have to get ourselves ready for an earlier departure than we originally thought. NY Magazine reports that the star's last episode will actually be sometime in April, rather than the season finale.

Next week on NCIS, a petty officer's recruitment session at a college fair comes to a fatal end, prompting the team, accompanied by Dr. Mallard's predecessor, to solve his murder. It's not entirely clear how Dr. Magnus (played by Bob Newhart) comes to assist the agents, but Abby calls him "adorable" and a "walking forensic encyclopedia," so we're sold.

Talk about polar opposites. While ABC's Tuesday night lineup hit or tied series lows, while CBS' NCIS drew a record audience.

V, down 10% tying a low, also struggled (5.8 million, 1.9/5) and at 10 p.m., Detroit 1-8-7, down 8%, drew 5.3 million (1.1/3).

NCIS returns in three weeks (Tuesday, January 11), followed by spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife on CBS, a perpetually dominating lineup for the network. Some fans occasionally say the show has lost some of its luster over seven-plus seasons, but week in and week out, the procedural earns its #1 ranking in the ratings. When it comes to seamlessly melding sharp writing, healthy doses of humor, lightning-quick plot developments and intense action, the show may be peerless today. Here's a new NCIS promo with some classic clips from this fall ... Source & Promo
Two of CBS' freshman series, Blue Bloods and The Defenders, are trading prime-time real estate next month. CBS announced Tuesday that Blue Bloods will air Wednesdays at 10/9c for one month beginning Jan. 19. To make room, The Defenders will then permanently move to Fridays at 8/7c starting Feb. 4, two weeks after the series finale of Medium. The swap makes sense for CBS. The network's five new shows are the top-rated new series of the TV season, and Blue Bloods has shown surprising strength on Fridays, where it is averaging 12.3 million viewers. As the lead-out to CBS' veteran hits Survivor and Criminal Minds, The Defenders' average of 10 million viewers is less impressive. Whether or not The Defenders will be a strong enough lead-in for CSI: NY at 9/8c remains to be seen. To Read More Click Here.

In crowning its new champ, The Biggest Loser was Tuesday's biggest winner among adults 18-to-49, helping NBC just beat CBS in the demo. Overall, the two-hour finale of Loser that aired 9-11 p.m. posted a 4.0 rating in the demo (peaking at 11.2 million viewers). That's up 29 percent from last week's episode, but down 20 percent compared to last autumn's season-ender. Elsewhere at 9, NCIS: Los Angeles scored a 3.2 (16.8 million) while reruns for everything else lagged far behind (Fox's Glee, 2.1, 5.4 million viewers; ABC's No Ordinary Family, 1.0, 3.5 million; and the CW's The Vampire Diaries, 0.5, 1.2 million.)
