NCIS' Ziva Has a [Blank]!

... Okay all you crazy NCIS fans, I don't think this is really a spoiler or anything, but if you are overly sensitive to this type of stuff, check out this site full of pictures of Paula Deen riding things and then skip to the next item. Fan-favorite Ziva David has long alluded to having a man, and we're finally going to see him. Without a Trace's Enrique Murciano has been booked to play CIA agent Ray Cruz, Ziva's main squeeze—or main squeegie as Ziva would say. Ray will stick around for multiple episodes beginning with this season's 20th episode, which I believe airs in early April. How will Tony take it? [TV Line]

... Showtime has released the premiere dates for its summer slate. And it goes a little something like this... HIT IT!
* Secret Diary of a Call Girl: April 7, 10:30 pm. Final season.
* Gigolos: April 7, 11 pm. Premiere season.
* The Real L Word: June 5, 10 pm. Season 2.
* Weeds: June 27, 10 pm. Season 7.
* The Big C: June 27, 10:30 pm. Season 2.
* Web Therapy: July 19, 11 pm. Premiere season.

... Josh Holloway rose to fame as Sawyer on Lost, and now he's going even higher (in my book, at least. Holloway will guest-star in the season finale of Community, a two-parter. More news: The season finale will revolve around another game of paintball. [EW]

... Ashley Judd has finalized a deal to star in ABC's drama pilot Missing. She'll play a determined mom who travels to Europe to search for her missing son. Bonus: She's ex-CIA. Because of course she is! This is television. [The Live Feed]

... Rachelle Lefevre, from Twilight and my Top 10 Redheads list, has been booked to star in NBC's pilot The Crossing. But what about her other show Off the Map? Isn't she one of the stars of that show? Yes she is. Does that mean Off the Map is in trouble? My oh my, aren't you asking all the right questions today? [TV Line]

... Jaime Pressly, star of Poison Ivy 3, one of the best Skinemax movies ever made, is joining Fox's comedy pilot I Hate My Teenage Daughter. She'll play a mom whose daughter behaves just like the biznatches that bullied her in high school. Pressly is best known for her award-winning work as Joy on My Name is Earl. But you should still check out Poison Ivy 3 sometime. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Warner Bros. TV will be paying the crew of Two and Half Men for the four weeks they would have worked if the Sheen Storm hadn't ruined their lives. That's nice of them. [TMZ]

... And finally, in news that only I and professors who like to study media's participation in the downward spiral of humankind care about, ABC has renewed Bachelor Pad for a second season. I'm 100-percent serious when I say I would be totally happy if the network brought back the entire cast from last season, because they were some of the most vile human beings I've ever seen. At least bring back Elizabeth, I beg you. [EW]

Re: Ziva has a -----
Really? Enrique Whatsis---couldn't they find a guy with ears he is not afraid to go out in a windstorm with? Cote de Pablo is too gorgeous to be hung with the memory of her choosing an ugly, gawky, skinny excuse for a man for a "Boyfriend"!!!!!!

great news about Sawyer appearing on COMMUNITY. Too bad there's no one there for him to call "Freckles" LOL!!!

That Ashley Judd show sounds kind of stupid. I mean if she finds her son the show is over and if she spends two whole seasons looking and not finding him that would anger audiences. Is'nt that a lose-lose? I mean Taken was one of my favorite movies, but that was a movie.

I was first to write a lovely comment for this article, but it disappeared. Anyway, I'm glad to see Tony and Ziva both find someone. Tony, especially. He has been missing something since Jeanne left. But someone from the CIA? Come on, Ziva!

If Josh Holloway starts giving people funny nicknames, milk is gonna come outta my nose. Now switch beer for milk and my nose for my mouth.

You would think that since NCIS is the #1 show on TV that they would quite trying to mess up the winning formula by bringing in a smart-mouthed woman, EJ, and a so-called "hot" guy for Diva. Just can't be happy with something that works, can

ya???!!

@TheSilentOne77 - being hopefull that Lefevre kicks the bucket on Off The Map- how CAN you be so heartless !!!! Though if that series is doomed due to poor ratings then :yay: for her, cos Rachel was the reason I started watching OTM (and after the first 5mins the reason I nearly stopped watching!!) Am loving OTM but her The Crossing role (just googled a bit) does sound most intreging. So I guess her shuffling off the mortal coil in OTM ain't so bad now, I just hope it doesn't mirror the shows demise - Redheads rules :)

I think Tony will be just fine when Ziva's man comes sniffing around. Did you see him and Agent Barrett "EJ" getting cozy in the showers? As for Dexter, that's a fall show not a summer show. The 6th season will premiere September 25th 2011.

The question that comes to mind (after "Has the name "Ray Cruz" been used for another TV character?") is, how does Kort fit into this. But since this arc starts toward the end of the season, we aren't likely to find out until at least September, are we?

june 27th i am so there for weeds can't wait to see where the new season goes.. josh holloway on community should be great. i hate the whole "searching for a missing person" scenaro so i'm sure i'll hate ashley judd's, jamie pressley's pilot on the other hand sounds like it could be ok.

Rachelle Lefevre's character on Off the Map has a pretty tricky heart condition. Maybe she's just kicking the can? Let's be a little more hopeful please :)

Thank heavens! Maybe Ziva will marry Ray and move to Miami! Tony + EJ!
