Sil1 Questions about "Knockout" 1 Aug 29 2009, 1:32 PM EDT by jml709

The synopsis says Tara's bodygard was STABBED outside the hotel room, and the body dragged away by &c.
Is this even possible, much less likely? If it was the Director in the room sliding the note out? Must it not have been some sort of taser, or...?
Also, by the end of the episode, we know Tara is married to Banks. What was she doing in the hotel room in the first place? On what pretext?
Anyone have any insight?

Scarecrow4 Overnight Nielsen Ratings for "Knockout" 4 Mar 18 2009, 8:27 AM EDT by Scarecrow4
Thread started: Mar 18 2009, 6:56 AM EDT  Watch
Here are the overnight Nielsen Ratings for last nights all new episode "Knockout"...I believe it was the lowest ratings for a new episode of Season 6... NCIS was way below average for the season but still came in 2nd for total viewers... maybe some people did not know it was a new episode I just dont know...

The first direct clash this spring between American Idol and Dancing With The Stars was no contest. Idol buried Dancing head to head at 9pm, more than tripling its adult demos and pushing Dancing to its lowest rated regularly scheduled episode ever. Even winning the night, with all the competition Fox was down 1.3 ratings points in both demos for the night from last week.

Sharing the pain, CBS’s full line-up, back with all new episodes for the first time since February 17, also suffered mightily, pushed down to season lows. NBC too got hurt, down 0.4 ratings points in both demos from last week. The only thing reasonably stable was CW’s Reaper, with nearly identical demos from last week although those numbers may not be enough to keep it around for next season.

Show --------- 18-49 Rating / Share ------------ Total Viewers in Millions

1.American Idol (2 hrs) ----------- 8.0 / 22 ------------ 21.54 Mil.

2.NCIS ---------- 3.1 / 9 ------------ 15.51 Mil.

3.The Mentalist --------- 3.2 / 8 --------------- 15.39 Mil.

4.Dancing Results --------- 2.7 / 7 ----------- 12.42 Mil.

5.Without A Trace -------- 2.6 / 7 --------- 11.99 Mil.
