This week's episode of NCIS (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) features Gibbs' barber. Really.
According to CBS, "A media frenzy surrounding an unidentified criminal prompts Gibbs' barber to question his son's involvement and ask for Gibbs' help in ruling out his son as a prime suspect."
The continued success of this show is nothing short of amazing. Now in its 10th season, it's the most-watched the show on TV, averaging a whopping 22 million viewers per week. That's more than the fading "American Idol" and more than "Sunday Night Football."
And get the idea out of your head that "NCIS" is only watched by older viewers. It's not true. Sure, it has a lot of older viewers, but the show absolutely obliterates its competition in the all-important 18-49 demographic.
