  1. (Slightly off topic) Is there any news on when “seriously fast tracked” episodes of the new seasons of NCIS and NCIS Hawai’i will air on Ten? They started in the USA a few days ago. I can only see reruns listed in the TV guide for this week and next week. Are they holding off until after the Easter non-ratings break?
