Great to see Sasha coming back to TV. Too bad it sounds like it's going to be another one of those cookie-cutter domestic sitcoms instead of something original.

As much as I was saddened by Caitlin's death in NCIS - I must say that Cote dePablo's character is a much more entertaining presence in that show's "family". But I wish Sasha all the best of luck with her new show - not that I plan to watch it, as am not a great Sasha fan.... LOVE that NCIS show, though..!! One of The BEST...!!!!!

I guess that i'm quiting TV to do movies thing didnt work out for Sasha huh. Funny how some people(actors really) look down on TV industry by crying about long hours and little pay with the " i'm a great actor and should be doing movies" line always come crawling back. i hope they give her a broom closet for her trailer.

Huge pickup for CBS. They need a good compatible show for Old Christine and this is the one. I think Gary Unmarried should be paired up with Two and a Half Men on Mondays.
Alexander is a great actress and she's always deserved a series of her own.
It really seems like the multi-cams are making a comeback starting next year.
Hopefully NBC is smart to realize this is the winning formula for network comedies and uses Hilary Duff to make that happen.

Sasha left because she got pregnant and wanted to be a mom rather than go directly back to work. can't say i blame her...

Really enjoyed Kate's character (played by Sasha) in NCIS and will miss her very much. Enjoyed her exchanges with Tony... Pity she couldn't stay on. Took the death thing really hard... Won't it be possible to bring her back? Maybe her death was a cover up, she had to stay somewhere undercover as some vilian wanted her dead....(hie-hie)

Sasha was not pregnant when she left NCIS. Sasha never expected the show to be as successful as it was. She had never been part of anything for more than a year, prior to NCIS. She didn't think she had the stamina to keep up so they asked to be let out.

How does anyone think they really know why Sasha left NCIS!! Do you think anybody has told the real story. Obviously the woman likes to work, and the first and second year were full of praise for all the cast. I think, as all of you have your opinions, that she needed some time off and Bellasario said "bye bye". Have we ever seen a statment from Sasha Alexander herself? No, no and no. Until then fans will just feel angry and confused.

At the time Sasha left NCIS, no one was talking and there was great general anger that a favorite character was killed off so brutally, with no explanation. Sasha offered no explanation at the time though she has recently said there "were a million reasons" influencing her decision to leave NCIS. Originally Bellisario said he had a brainstorm on an airplane. None of the cast and crew ever leaked a thing.

Since then, Bellisario has said Sasha didn't want the constant grid and long hours of a hit TV show, etc. Probably true since working for Bellisario means 16-18 hours days with constant re-writes and changes. I was delighted a couple of years ago to see than Mark Harmon had forced Bellisario off the set and taken control of cast hours and work arrangements. I hope the show goes for another 10 years.

In looking back now (and googling), it was apparently Sasha's idea to leave the show, spurred by a happy love life in conflict with a horrendous work schedule.

It looks like Sasha got pregnant a couple of months after she left NCIS. She gave birth to a baby girl in May 2006, and married the father, one of Sophia Loren's sons, in June 2007.

I loved her character on NCIS and that great relationship with "Tony". I wish her well in her new TV series which airs tomorrow on TNT.

I really think that Wat they shoal have done was not bring her sister into it because if they didn't bring the sister into it then Kate could have been undercover in hiding and her sister could have been taking her place and her sister could have been shot. If this happend then Kate could come back shortly after words and it would be team Gibbs all the way. Plus I heard that if she hadn't left there would have been some real romance between her and tony

Sasha is co-star on the hit Rissoli and Aisles on TNT besides Cote is absolutely the best.

Have only recently started to watch NCIS and am a real fan if it. Having seen both the older episodes with Sasha in and the latest with the replacement character Zita I do enjoy both but think that Sasha's character just has the edge and wish they could somehow bring her character back. Fingers crossed for the future. Tony is my favourite character but I thnk they all work well together and it is a great show.

Love NCIS miss Kate would love for her to come back but they would have to have a plausable story line because no one would like "it was all just a dream" like they have done on other shows.
