    Benjamin Stockham is very funny in 1600 Penn. I hope he does well.

    Loved Michael Irby since Line Of Fire, glad he’s potentially back on our screens! And in one of the most promising-sounding pilots to boot!

    RE: Megan Dodds – CSI NY. Mac just proposed to Christine in the season finale and she said yes. Hopefully she will come back to guest on occasion if CSI NY gets a 10th season.

  4. forwarddad says:
