USA Network’s John Sanford’s Certain Prey [encoring Saturday, Nov. 12, 11/10C] marked the debut of Mark Harmon as Sanford’s Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport – a role that could become a regular thing for both the network and Harmon.

Harmon was charmingly gregarious in this teleconference Q&A and it’s too bad that technical difficulties prevented us from posting this Q&A prior to Certain Prey’s premiere – but, as mentioned above, there will be an encore presentation Saturday.

NCIS: The Seventh Season – The Cases Are Interesting But The Investigators Keep Us Coming Back!

NCIS, S7

Season seven of NCIS was, quite possibly, the show’s best yet. Over the course of the season, characters faced personal challenges that more than rivalled the cases they were working on. Throughout, the writing, performances and direction kept things moving and the audience involved.
