NCIS Season 11 premieres one week from tomorrow with an episode shaping up to be as memorable as any in the CBS show's decade-long history.

An extended version of the preview for "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" focuses on the impending, emotional departure of Cote de Pablo's Ziva David.

While that alone would make for gripping television, it appears to be woven into an explosive and intricate story in typical NCIS fashion. Take a look:

The premiere will feature an explosion that takes the life of someone close to the agency and changes Parsons’ perspective on Gibbs, along with the team.

Who dies? How might this play a role in Ziva's farewell? And who is targeting the NCIS agents, last seen resigning en masse in an effort to save Gibbs?

Will Cote de Pablo's decision to exit the series, ironically, be the event that finally brings Tiva together, if only for one fleeting moment to start the season?

We'll find out when NCIS Season 11 begins September 24.

Breaking Bad's third-to-last episode, "Ozymandias," was teased by creator Vince Gilligan as the show's best to date, and it certainly did not lack for drama.

Was it the show's high water mark? That depends on your perspective, but it's hard to imagine TV getting any more electrifying than Sunday night.

Every time you thought things couldn't get any worse, they did, as Breaking Bad continues to find new ways to become mind-numbingly devastating.

Have you ever watched TV and literally gasped out loud, mouthed "holy s--t" to yourself, held your hands to your mouth or sat on the edge of your seat?

This would be the occasion.

Once your stomach settles and blood pressure falls, let's break down where things stand with just two installments left of the greatest show of our time.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.

Grant Gustin has been cast as Barry Allen/Flash on Arrow Season 2 and the potential spinoff thereafter, a rep for the hit CW show has just confirmed.

Grant Gustin Pic

Gustin will appear in three episodes, two in the first half of the season and one near the end which will be the backdoor pilot for a potentially new show.

Barry Allen is a “forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past."

Fittingly, comic book fanboys know that Barry, a comic book fanboy himself, doubles as Flash, who may anchor his own CW series. Says the network:

"Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.”

Three weeks remain until school is back in session on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, and a new CW trailer is here to hype up the return of the  supernatural thriller.

On October 3, the show will fast forward to the fall right along with us, showing us the first day of classes for Elena and Caroline at Whitmore College.

This minute-long preview combines footage from previous promos with fresh clips of Damon talking to his university-bound love (and it appears, Katherine).

We also see Jeremy throwing fists in a high school hallway and Silas-Stefan, the dangerous doppelganger, getting his sexy on with Kat in the bathtub.

See what new faces and hot new surprises await on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 ...

Jimmy Kimmel Live took its recurring "Lie Witness News" segment to New York Fashion Week, and the results were as hilarious as you might imagine.

Fashion Week, as we know, brings together celebrity gossip bloggers, designers, photographers, stars and fans looking to get a glimpse of the action.

Kimmel decided to interview some of those Fashion Week attendees in hopes of gaining insight into some haute couture designers who really don't exist.

Watch below as the interviewees lie, BS and talk out of their collective a$$es about how much they totes LOVE the fake labels' new collection this fall!

On a side note, we would pay to see what George Costanza designs would actually produce. Ditto Purina Chow. Would they only design for canines?

Not quite up there with his all-time hoax - engineering the epic Twerking fail prank on the entire Internet - but another fine effort from Kimmel, for sure.

Jimmy Fallon channels Walter White in a great Breaking Bad parody entitled Joking Bad. Like the show itself, it is LONG, drawn-out and detail oriented.

Fallon does his best impression Bryan Cranston's bald, Emmy-winning character for the segment, only he slings awful jokes instead of crystal meth.

If you're into the show, and/or Fallon's spot-on impersonations, you'll love it:

Supporting character and Breaking Bad spinoff focal point Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) actually appears in the skit as Jimmy's agent, which is great.

Cranston and Aaron Paul also make cameos, further adding to the Late Night skit's luster and making us lament the fact that only three episodes remain.

Of Breaking Bad, that is. Jimmy has six months before taking over for Jay Leno.
