David Letterman is clearly enjoying his retirement.

The former Late Show host was photographed going for a run on the Caribbean island of St. Barts this week. He hasn’t shaved his beard since he went off the air last May, but he shaved his head almost completely bald. He looks like an entirely different person. The only way to tell it’s him is the Ball State alumnus’ t-shirt.

Check him out:

Sarah Clarke

There’s a new tough-talking FBI Special Agent heading to NCIS.

24 alum Sarah Clarke has been tapped to play Tess Monroe, a “quick-witted, tough and shrewd” Special Agent who recently transferred to D.C. from New York City, TVGuide.com has learned.

According to a character description, Tess is “a multiple divorcée who’s as sexy as she is strong. Tess has no kids so she views her fellow agents as family. Beneath a no-nonsense shell, Tess has a big heart. She believes in honor and justice and doing what’s right. And she’ll fight to protect those values, and her team, with fierce determination and a tinge of sarcasm along the way.”

Best known for playing duplicitous Nina Myers on 24, Clarke has also appeared on Bosch, The Tomorrow People, Covert Affairs, Men of a Certain Age, and in the Twilight franchise.

“We feel so fortunate to have Sarah Clarke joining us to play Tess,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg said in a statement. “I’ve been a fan of hers going back to 24 and more recently Bosch. She’s a gifted actress, a total pro, and we can’t wait to introduce her to our NCIS family and have some fun.”

For now, Clarke is booked as a guest star and Tess will appear on the final two episodes of NCIS‘ current season, but it’s possible that she could become a series regular. Will she be able to fill the void left by Tony DiNozzo?

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.

More than two-thirds of Americans who subscribe to streaming video services watch episodes back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back, a new survey shows.

Of the 46% of Americans who subscribe to streaming services, 70% of them binge-watch TV shows, according to the latest “Digital Democracy Survey” conducted by consulting firm Deloitte. Viewers average five episodes per spree.

The survey, which polled 2,205 people last November, found that 31% of respondents binge-watch on a weekly basis, a number that increases to 36% in the 19-25 demographic. Drama is the most popular genre to binge, at 53%, followed by comedy at 17% and reality at 7%.

The survey also shed light on how millennials consume content. Unsurprisingly, millennials spend more time streaming than watching live TV

Millennials “value streaming more than [live] TV, and when they do watch TV they are doing an average of four other things at a time,” Kevin Westcott, Deloitte’s U.S. media and entertainment consulting principal, told Variety, which first reported the results. More than 90 percent of US consumers are now multitasking while watching TV, according to the survey.

The survey found, essentially, that Americans — and young Americans especially — are becoming more addicted to streaming every year, both in terms of how much time they spend binge-watching and how much they value their Netflix accounts.

Watch the First Trailer for Bridget Jones's Baby

Everything has changed, and yet everything is exactly the same in the first trailer for Bridget Jones’s Baby.

Bridget (Renee Zellwegger) is still having awkwardly terse encounters with (her now ex), Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), still struggling to define her place at work, and once again caught in a love triangle with a tall, dark and handsome man (Patrick Dempsey), who will probably turn out to be a cad because we all know Mark and Bridget are MFEO.

But there is one big difference in the third movie: Bridget’s pregnant!

As to who the father is, we’ll all have to wait until Bridget Jones’s Baby hits theaters on Sept. 16 to find out. In the meantime, check out the full trailer, which exclusively premiered on Ellen, below.
