I have a feeling this news would please Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly). CBS is reporting that the hit Navy procedural will break a Guinness World Record in Japan for the “longest uninterrupted transmission of a TV series.”
So, in order to set a new Guinness World Record, FOX Japan will run a 234-episode marathon of ‘NCIS.’ I don’t know about you, but I could sit through 234 episodes. After all, I can’t get enough of USA Network’s themed-marathons of the hit series starring Weatherly, Mark Harmon, Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum and Brian Dietzen.
Beginning Sunday, Dec. 29, FOX Japan will consecutively air Season 1 through 10. The new record will officially be recognized as soon as the marathon ends on Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 5 p.m.
Not only has some of the cast been tweeting about the exciting news, but ‘NCIS’ executive producer Gary Glasberg is also thrilled, "Ten full days of NCIS! I wish the cast and crew could be in Japan to witness this extraordinary accomplishment. What a wonderful gift to ring in the New Year. Thank you to all our fans worldwide!"
Like Glasberg said, this is a great way to honor the series, and an even better way to welcome ‘NCIS’ Season 11 to FOX Japan when it begins in February 2014.
Would you watch 234 consecutive episodes of ‘NCIS’?
‘NCIS’ airs Tuesday at 8/7c on CBS.
