‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Shares Her ‘Lovely’ George HW Bush Dream After His Death

Pauley Perrette had a dream … about sharing a “lovely” conversation with George H.W. Bush during a long plane flight.

“NCIS” alum Perrette took to Twitter early Saturday, shortly after news broke that the 41st President of the United States had died at age 94.

According to Perrette, while she “didn’t align” with all of Bush’s politics, the dream “softened me to REALLY look at both sides” and “helped me understand my Republican Dad.”

“So years ago I had dream about #GeorgeHWBush,” the actress began her tweet.

“I didn’t align with all of his politics but in my dream we were on a long plane ride together and sat next to each other,” Perrette continued. “We talked for hours and hours. He was kind, as was I. We discussed many things.”

Perrette also tossed in a jab at the nation’s current chief executive in her recollection.

“It softened me to REALLY look at both sides. (Not now, [T]rump is the friend of NO ONE but himself, and that’s not political, it’s just personal, ANY other republican would have spared us this shame!),” Perrette wrote.

“Anyways, #GHWB and me had a lovely talk, calm, talked about our differences in policy and the things we agreed on, and it was one of the best dreams ever,” Perrette continued.

“It helped me understand my Republican Dad, it helped me learn that we can disagree and still be kind and respectful to one another,” the actress concluded.

Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush, announced his father’s death on Friday.

“Jeb, Nell, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died,” the younger Bush said Friday night. “George H. W. Bush was a man of the highest character, and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens.”

‘This Is Us’ Ratings Drop To Series Low As Thanksgiving Holiday Looms

As America begins packing up and hitting the road or heading to the airport for Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends, a bit of a bite was taken out of primetime last night. The hardest hit looks to be NBC, with a season low match for The Voice (1.4/6) and a series low for This Is Us (1.8/8). Matched by ABC's The Conners (1.4, 6.91M) in the key demo, the singing competition show dropped 13% among adults 18-49 from last week. In Thanksgiving mode itself and…

‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Takes a Faith-Based Dig at Trump

Pauley Perrette got biblical on President Donald Trump on Monday.

A day before the midterm elections, “NCIS” alum Perrette invoked Jesus’ name in an anti-Trump message on Twitter, declaring Trump a “mean, mean man” who is “fooling you.”

“Where is Jesus when voting for someone who does the opposite of Jesus?” Perrette, who played Abby Sciuto on the CBS series for more than a decade before exiting the show earlier this year.

“I’m serious. I’m a faith driven person. Jesus didn’t make fun of people, say horribly mean things, spread hate about race, women, handicapped and pretty much any target that makes the hateful cheer,” the actress continued.

“I’m happy with my vote, as a Christian, to listen to love and Jesus and vote against trump [sic] and his pals in any way.”

Perrette concluded her pre-election day message, “He is a mean, mean man. He’s fooling you. Stop laughing with him. It’s cruelty and it’s wrong.”

Perrette accompanied her message with the biblical quote, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?”

Ratings: ‘The Conners’ Loses 25 Percent of Last Week’s Premiere Viewers

Fox easily won the Tuesday night ratings fight with Game 1 of the World Series, which provided some tough competition for Week 2 of “The Conners” (and everything else on TV). The “Roseanne” spinoff got plunked, shedding 25 percent of its debut viewers, and 26 percent of adults 18-49.

This time around, ABC’s “The Conners” posted a 1.7 rating/7 share and 7.9 million viewers at 8 p.m. Compare that with last week’s series premiere, which scored a 2.3/10 and 10.5 million viewers.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for Fox should be considered subject to significant adjustment. According to the earlier-available (but more accurate for Fox, in this case) overnight ratings, Game 1 of the World Series slipped 2 percent from last year’s comparable contest.

Fox was first in ratings with a 3.5 rating/14 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 13.2 million, according to preliminary numbers. Game 1 ran throughout primetime.

NBC was second in ratings with a 1.7/7 and third in viewers with 7.7 million. “The Voice” at 8 earned a 1.6/7 and 8.2 million viewers. At 9, “This Is Us” put up a 2.1/8 and 8.4 million viewers. “New Amsterdam” at 10 received a 1.3/6 and 6.4 million viewers.

CBS and ABC tied for third in ratings, both with a 1.0/4. CBS was second in total viewers with 9 million, ABC was fourth with 4.8 million.

For CBS, “NCIS” at 8 landed a 1.2/5 and 11.1 million viewers. At 9, “FBI” had a 1.0/4 and 8.8 million viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” at 10 got a 0.8/4 and 7.1 million viewers.

For ABC, following “The Conners,” “The Kids Are Alright” at 8:30 had a 1.1/4 and 5.1 million viewers. At 9, “Black-ish” got a 0.9/4 and 3.8 million viewers. “Splitting Up Together” at 9:30 received a 0.7/3 and 2.9 million viewers. “The Rookie” at 9 closed primetime with a 0.8/4 and 4.4 million viewers.

The CW was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.5 million. “The Flash” at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 1.8 million viewers. At 9, “Black Lightning” got a 0.4/1 and 1.2 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for sixth in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. Univision was sixth in total viewers with 1.4 million, Telemundo was seventh with 1.2 million.

Ratings: ‘The Conners’ Premiere Draws 10.5 Million Viewers

ABC’s “The Conners” debuted to a 2.3 rating/10 share among adults 18-49 and 10.5 million total viewers on Tuesday. While it’s not a perfect comparison — and those are solid numbers — they don’t look great next to the gaudy returns “Roseanne” premiered to in the spring.

In late March, “Roseanne” returned to a 4.9 demo rating and 17.7 million viewers. A second episode that same night rose to a 5.3 and 18.6 million viewers. That means “Roseanne” did 113 percent better in the demo than “The Conners,” and had 69 percent more overall audience members than its spinoff.

Still, “The Conners” is now the No. 1 new series of the TV season. Since “Roseanne” was considered a revival of an existing series and this one is a new show, “The Conners” is ABC’s most-watched comedy series debut in four years, and the best in three years among adults 18-49.

NBC topped Tuesday in the key demo and CBS won in total viewers. ABC was runner-up in the demo and third among overall audience averages.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a 1.7/7 and 8.8 million viewers. The Jack-in-Vietnam episode of “This Is Us” at 9 scored a 2.2/8 and 8.9 million viewers. “New Amsterdam” at 10 received a 1.2/5 and 6.4 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.3/5 and third in viewers with 6 million. After “The Conners” at 8, new sitcom “The Kids Are Alright” premiered to a 1.4/6 and 6.6 million viewers. A new season of “Black-ish” at 9 opened to a 1.1/4 and 4.5 million viewers. “Splitting Up Together” returned at 9:30 to a 1.0/4 and 3.7 million viewers.

‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Calls for ‘Monster’ Blake Fischer’s Ouster Over Baboon-Hunting Story

“NCIS” alum Pauley Perrette has taken aim at Blake Fischer, the Idaho fish and game commissioner who sparked outrage after reportedly sharing photos of exotic animals he’d killed during a hunting trip in Africa.

During a series of tweets, Perrette branded Fischer a “monster” and called for his ouster.

In a series of tweets published Sunday, Perrette savaged Fischer, writing, “What kind of monster kills giraffes and a family of baboons including a mother clutching her baby to impress his wife? And proudly posts it?”

According to the Idaho Statesman, Fischer shared photos — including a photo of a “family of baboons” that he’d killed — with friends and colleagues after his return from the trip last month, prompting former fish and game commissioner Fred Trevey to call for his resignation “to shield the commission as an institution and hunting as a legitimate tool of wildlife management from the harm that is sure to come.”

The Statesman reported that, after being called by an anonymous fellow commissioner who was upset about the photos, Fischer apologized for sending the photos unsolicited, but not for the hunt itself.

“I didn’t do anything illegal. I didn’t do anything unethical. I didn’t do anything immoral,” the Statesman quoted Fischer as saying. “… I look at the way Idaho’s Fish and Game statute says we’re supposed to manage all animals for Idaho, and any surplus of animals we have we manage through hunting, fishing and trapping. Africa does the same thing.”

But Perrette, who played Abby Sciuto on CBS procedural “NCIS” for more than a decade before exiting the series earlier this year, was unwavering in her criticism of Fischer, demanding his immediate ouster.

“Prior tweet: the Idaho Fish and Game Commissioner Blake Fischer. That’s the monster,” Perrette tweeted Sunday night. “REMOVE HIM NOW! This is NOT A GAME! Monster.”

The actress went on to share photos reported to be of “smiling jerk” Fischer posing with his kills. Perrette cautioned her Twitter followers that she wished she hadn’t seen them, “so beware.”

Perrette isn’t the only Hollywood notable to express anger over the Fischer story. On Monday, actor and noted conservative James Woods took to Twitter to strongly express his disapproval, writing, “Honestly some things are just obvious, so please stop selling this nonsense that killing innocent wildlife helps conserve the species,” Woods wrote. “It’s just bulls–. Killing these glorious creatures is barbaric. Just stop it.”

Woods went on to write, “Final word: I eat hamburgers. Somebody does the killing. I’m not going to get holier-than-thou about hunters. If you’re a carnivore, then somebody has to do the killing. But killing for a ‘trophy’ is absurd. What I’d really like to see is the licensed hunting of poachers.”

‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Warns Fans About ‘Scam’ Skin Care Ads Featuring Her on Facebook

No, Pauley Perrette has not expanded into the skin care business, and she’s sick of bogus ads saying that she has.

“NCIS” alum Perrette took to Twitter on Tuesday to vent — and warn her fans — about “scam” ads on Facebook saying that the actress has launched a skin care line.

Perrette, who played Abby Sciuto on the CBS procedural for more than a decade prior to departing earlier this year, went on to note that she doesn’t even have a Facebook account.

“Those STUPID FALSE ADS are back up on Facebook! I DO NOT HAVE A SKIN CARE LINE! I DO NOT KNOW @DrOz !” Perrette wrote in an impassioned tweet. “It’s a SCAM!!! (AND I’m NOT on FB!)”

A Facebook search for “Pauley Perrette” skin care yields a number of results, including one, dated July 12, 2017, that reads, “Pauley Perrette Leaves NCIS for Anti Aging Skin Care Cream!”

A number of responses to Perrette’s tweet suggested that Perrette wasn’t the only celebrity who’d been afflicted by such ads.

“Oh they are fake. I saw one yesterday that had you and Lauren holly in it said something about you turning Lauren onto it,” read one response.

“The same ad about Kristen [sic] Vangsness. Word for word except for it was her name and not yours!” read another reply. “I mean, COME ON! if your [sic] gonna scam someone at least change the wording as well as the name so it’s believable!”

And then there was, “Who’s on FB anymore?….”

‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Says Her Homeless Attacker Has Now Knifed a Police Officer

“NCIS” alum Pauley Perrette took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a scary story with her followers, saying that a “totally methed out homeless guy who tried to kill me” three years ago has been “back out on the streets,” and has now stabbed an LAPD officer who had been looking out for her.

“So the totally methed out homeless guy that tried to kill me In November of 2015 has been back on the streets of Hollywood. My HERO @LAPDHollywood @LAPDHQ Officer Ralph Sanchez… Has kept an eye on me and on him and everyone to try and make sure It doesn’t happen again, BUT..,” the actress, who played Abby on the CBS procedural, wrote.

Perrette then went on to write, “My attacker has threatened and attacked other women. But he’s still out there. I guess almost killing me was not enough.”

“So my Beloved Hero Cop Ralph Sanchez got a call that Dangerous guy was threatening women in Hollywood AGAIN. And my hero cop went there. And guy was CRAZY AGAIN and unfortunately this time had a weapon,” Perrette continued.

“My hero cop, Officer Ralph Sanchez, was knifed in the face protecting those women. Protecting all of us, And was injured in other ways,” Perrette added.

The actress added, “What does it take, really, to get a violent criminal off the street? I begged then to not let him out of prison, I TOLD them that he was going to kill someone.”

Perrette concluded, “This NEVER should have happened. I TOLD THEM.”

TheWrap has reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department for comment on Perrette’s account.

Perrette said that she had been attacked in a November 2015 tweet.

“I am shaken and traumatized,” Perrette’s lengthy social media screenshot stated. “My life changed tonight.”

Perrette said she was walking to meet her architect when she was “jumped by a VERY psychotic homeless man,” who called himself William.

“He grabbed me so forcefully, pinned my arm, punched me in the nose, forehead repeatedly telling me he was going to kill me,” she stated. “Then he showed me how he was going to kill me.”

She then said that she only prayed and told him she had a nephew named William, and that it is “a beautiful name.”

“He started to punch me again and then said, ‘Get the f-k out of here,’ and I did,” the actress tweeted.

Perrette said she went into shock and collapsed on the sidewalk, where passers-by were disinterested in assisting.

“Some guy walked right past with a dog that licked my face. He was on his phone, annoyed. Did nothing,” she wrote.

Jennifer Esposito: I Lost 5 Roles in Last Month Because I’m ‘Not White Enough’

Former “NCIS” star Jennifer Esposito has opened up on social media about her rough encounters with casting directors, saying that over the past month she’s lost five roles for not being “white enough.”

“Have a question for my actor friends,” she began in a Facebook post. “Ever get totally blocked by casting directors?”

In replies to comments, the Italian-American actress grumbled, “Not getting a job is one thing, but not even being allowed in a room to have an opportunity is another.”

Esposito, whose big break came in 1997 when she joined the cast of the Michael J. Fox sitcom “Spin City” for two seasons, added, “Isn’t it their job ito [sic] bring you in to at least give you a chance to read before someone says you’re not right!?. As you said especially people in the business for years and years.”

She went on to recall that when she was starting as an actress, she was cast in a play opposite Marisa Tomei. Esposito remembers Tomei telling her to change her last name. In hindsight, she said she thinks Tomei was “10000% right,” as she has struggled to even get in the door recently.

“In the last month I was told I was not white enough for 5 different projects. How is this still going on or allowed?” Esposito lamented. “Just not okay.”

Pauley Perrette Calls Out ‘Family Feud’ Over ‘Filthy and Sex Questions’

Survey says “Family Feud” has gotten a little too bawdy, if Pauley Perrette is the one being asked.

“NCIS” alum Perrette took the popular game show to task on Monday, declaring her love for the program, but also taking it to task and asking, “WHY DO YOU MAKE YOU [sic] PROGRAM SO FILTHY?”

“Dear @FamilyFeudABC I love @SteveHarveyFM and I love game shows. WHY DO YOU MAKE YOU PROGRAM SO FILTHY? Even with child players? No reason,” Perrette tweeted.

Perrette reasserted the criticism in a second tweet.

“I’m a sociologist, love @FamilyFeudABC but WHY WHY are all the questions now filthy and sex questions?” Perrette wrote. “There’s so much more to humans. Cmon.”

The Twitter account that Perrette at-tagged belongs to “Celebrity Family Feud.” It’s uncertain if her complaint is confined to the star-studded edition, or if it also extends to the non-celebrity version of the program.

In either case, judging from the comments on Perrette’s tweets, the actress isn’t alone in her sentiment.

“I’m 36 and feel uncomfortable watching it with my dad. Bc all the questions revolve around sex or bedroom actions I refuse to watch it,” one commenter wrote. “It’s so so sad that what was once a good wholesome FAMILY show is now nothing more than sex talk and perverted thoughts.”

“YES! I quit watching it long ago. Steve used to remind people that it was FAMILY Feud when they gave nasty answers but now he seems to delight in it,” another response read.

Read Perrette’s tweets below — and feel free to share your own thoughts on the topic in the comments section.

NCIS Season 16: Diona Reasonover Promoted to Series Regular After Pauley Perrette’s Exit

Diona Reasonover has some big shoes — or combat boots — to fill.

The actress has been promoted to series regular for “NCIS” Season 16 after having previously guest starred in three episodes of the drama, a representative from CBS told TheWrap.

Her character, Kasie Hines, replaces forensic scientist Abby Sciuto, the fan favorite played by actress Pauley Perrette for 15 seasons. Kasie was originally hired as a graduate assistant before receiving Abby’s blessing to join the team and the lab.

Perrette’s brilliant pigtailed, goth-chic character said her final goodbyes to the NCIS team in May after a close brush with death and the actual death of her colleague in last season’s episode, “Two Steps Back.”

At the time, Perrette was the most-liked female primetime star on TV, according to the Q Scores Company. Other crime show actresses, such as “Law and Order” star Mariska Hargitay and “Criminal Minds” actress Paget Brewster also placed behind Perrette in the top 10.

Reasonover’s other guest starring roles include “2 Broke Girls” and “Grace and Frankie.”

An alumnae of the CBS Diversity Showcase, she wrote and performed in the 2014 performance and was the head writer in 2015. Her writing credits include the Emmy-nominated “I Love You, America,” “I Love Dick” and “Adam Ruins Everything.”

Reasonover is repped by CAA.

“NCIS” Season 16 will premiere Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
