Stalking is not something that only happens to celebrities – though it may have taken the murder of singer Christina Grimmie to call attention to how serious it can be.
NCIS star Pauley Perrette has been stalked for more than a decade but police have been less than helpful, ‘I was told by a police officer once that I should have stayed and let my stalker break my arms so then they would have something to prosecute,’ Perrette tells 48 Hours’ Erin Moriarty.
That’s why she has been working to change stalking laws that she says are ‘are outdated or ineffective,’ in Stalked, a two-hour 48 Hours special to be broadcast Saturday, Feb. 25 (9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) on CBS.
The ninth-season finale of NCIS (CBS, Tuesdays, 9/8C) ending with the explosion of a car bomb at NCIS headquarters, left the fates of Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ team, NCIS Director Leon Vance and forensics expert Abby Scuitto up in the air – and precipitated a heart attack that left Dr. Donald ‘Ducky’ Mallard lying, seemingly alone, on a beach. The show’s tenth season premiere, Extreme Prejudice, picks up shortly thereafter.
Few television programs and boast of increased ratings over several seasons. NCIS [CBS, Tuesdays, 8/7C] recently hit a series high – in its eighth season! This week’s episode, Recruited, displays the balance of procedural and character that has enabled the series to flourish for so long.
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.
