Even though Robi Boscarino lives a world away, the 17-year-old Australian still manages to tune into CBS' "NCIS" seven nights a week. Earlier this month, the Perth resident visited the hit crime procedural's sound stages in Valencia and caught his favorite character, DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), in action. "Back home, everybody likes him," said Boscarino, who has Hodgkin's lymphoma and whose big dream to visit the set was made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. "He's one of the most popular TV actors, for sure.

SAN DIEGO -- A senior Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent will plead guilty in a bribery scandal involving lucrative contracts to service ships in the Asia-Pacific region, his attorney said Thursday. Attorney Jan Ronis told reporters that John Bertrand Beliveau II, 44, will plead guilty next week in federal court. Beliveau is charged with leaking confidential documents to Leonard Glenn Francis, a Singapore-based businessman, about an investigation involving Francis that began in 2010, and then tutoring him on how to avoid giving incriminating statements.

You don't have to be an "NCIS" fan to watch its spin-off, "NCIS: Los Angeles," which premieres tonight. Although the main characters of "Los Angeles" were introduced on "NCIS" last season, this pilot neatly gets everyone up to speed, quickly introducing Special Agent G. Callen (Chris O'Donnell) as he attempts to return to work after a brutal and traumatic shooting. Staring moodily from a rather questionable motel room overlooking a Santa Monica Pier bathed in an amber sunset, he is clearly not at peace with himself, a fact that is quickly pointed out by his partner, Special Agent Sam Hanna (LL Cool J)

Infatuation is grand. But for a relationship to endure, it must be based on something more than superficial attraction. There must be mutual respect and compatibility and shared interests. No, this isn't a stray chunk from an Ask Amy column. This is a love story. But can it last? Several months ago, I suddenly discovered the TV series "NCIS." The initials stand for "Naval Criminal Investigative Service," although for me it might as well have been "LIFA" -- for "Life Is Forever Altered."

Last season, "NCIS" ended in a cliffhanger, one actually worth fretting over. After a several-episode-long arc in which Jethro Gibbs ( Mark Harmon) was doing his best to take down a Mexican drug cartel, he'd succeeded only in part. The head of the family, a Tennessee Williams-quoting black widow named Paloma Reynosa ( Jacqueline Obradors), was seeking revenge on Gibbs because, as it happened, he killed her father, a secret he'd kept for years. In the final scene, she entered Gibbs' father's general store in Pennsylvania, bent on evening the score.

When one of TV's top scripted dramas returns next week for its fourth season, the crack investigative team of "NCIS: Los Angeles" will employ technology in an entirely new way: to capture the second screen in the living room. CBS is offering an iPad application that synchronizes with each episode and delivers content designed to complement the TV viewing experience. The "NCIS: Los Angeles Connect" app, available Tuesday through Apple Inc.'s iTunes store, will afford viewers the chance to examine evidence more closely, learn more about the suspects and vote on whom they believe committed the crime.

SAN DIEGO - Eager to strengthen its ties with the U.S., the government of Thailand agreed not to charge for use of its docks and wharves when three Navy ships arrived in 2010 for a multi-nation exercise at sea. So when a bill arrived weeks later at the Navy regional headquarters for $110,000, the Navy began asking questions. That led to an expansive, international investigation into whether the Navy and U.S. taxpayers were getting ripped off at ports throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The character was initially supposed to have a reoccurring multiple-episode arc, but before any of those episodes even ran, the announcement was made that Wickersham was in for good. Wickersham will make her debut on the show on Nov. 19, when it's discovered that the secretary of the Navy was bugged during a confidential briefing.

Downtown office workers beware: On Thursday morning there will be gunfire, a chase, a rush of ambulances and a bomb squad. And smile, you just might be on TV. The Los Angeles County Superior Court says the show "NCIS" will be filming in parts of Grand Park starting at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. It should only add to the regular chaos of downtown L.A., but at least it will be fake. The story line, according to the court, calls for police vehicles, a bomb squad and other emergency vehicles.
