While Hawaii Five-0 has premiered each new season at Waikiki’s Sunset On The Beach, this is the first time CBS has previewed a first-run episode of the show mid-way through the season and almost a week in advance of its national airdate.
“Ho’onani Makuakane,” which will premiere nationally on Friday, December 13th, is being played aboard the USS Missouri from December 7th – 13th. The episode blends a present-day attempted murder with the ultimate cold case, featuring flashbacks to the December 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor and the experiences of Japanese-American internees at the Honouliuli internment camp.
Stephanie Silverstein of Pacific Business News details the week-long episode preview aboard the USS Missouri in the following article.

CBS to preview episode of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ aboard the Mighty Mo
Stephanie Silverstein — Reporter- Pacific Business News
Visitors to the Battleship Missouri Memorial will have the opportunity to see a sneak preview of next week’s “Hawaii Five-0” World War II remembrance episode when they visit the battleship any day starting Saturday, the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, until the episode’s scheduled air date on Dec. 13.
The episode, titled “Hoonani Makuakane” and translated as “Honor Thy Father,” will be projected onto a large video screen in the Missouri’s educational classroom on board the battleship. Paid admission to the Battleship Missouri Memorial is required for access to the screening.
According to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, “the episode focuses on the attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran that led Five-0 to use decades-old evidence to investigate a deadly crime committed within the internment camps holding Americans of Japanese ancestry on Oahu during World War II. A remembrance ceremony using actual World War II veterans was filmed at the Battleship Missouri Memorial.”
The screening at the Battleship Missouri Memorial marks the first time CBS has released a “Hawaii Five-0” episode six days in advance of the national air date; the season premiere has been screened the night before the air date for the past couple of years at “Sunset on the Beach” in Waikiki.
The Battleship Missouri Memorial was featured on another episode of “Hawaii Five-0” earlier this season, which filmed scenes on the deck of the “Mighty Mo.”

If there’s one thing we can learn about Paul Walker after his untimely passing last weekend, it’s that he lived and loved well and was loved well in return. The outpouring of grief, love, and remembrance from those who knew him is a testament to the kind of man, friend, and brother he was.
Scott Caan’s friendship with Walker spanned fifteen years, starting with the movie “Varsity Blues.” It was a friendship he treasured, as he told Entertainment Weekly’s Lindsay Bahr in an interview for EW’s Inside Movies column (excerpt below).
When Scott Caan was cast in Varsity Blues, he wondered whether or not he’d made a big mistake.
“I had never really been on location for a long amount of time. When you’re in your 20s and leaving all your friends and family, you have no idea what it’s going to be like,” Caan told EW. “I was complaining to my friends like, ‘I’m not going to like any of these guys.’ A bunch of actors, you know?”
Paul Walker was one of the first people he met. In another world, the handsome California native could have been one those awful actor-types that Caan feared he’d have to tolerate. But if you’ve read anything about Walker, that wasn’t the case. “[We] immediately started talking about surfing and jujitsu and got an apartment together that night,” he said. They settled on a two-bedroom outside of Austin, where they’d live and party and bond for the duration of the shoot. “It was like a frat house,” Caan laughed, remembering that there would regularly be up to seven people crashing on their floor and couches.
It was also the beginning of what would become a 15-year friendship.
Despite the intense, immediate connection between the competitive adventure lovers, being working actors meant that Paul and Scott spent more time apart than they did together, often going months and sometimes years between visits.
“I like to say, ‘Paul would do Paul sometimes,’” said Caan. ”He would be super connected, and then he would have a trip or a mission or something that he wanted to do, and you’d go, all right, Paul’s going to go do whatever Paul does, and then in six months he’ll tell you about it and you’ll pick up right where you left off.”
The next time they teamed up professionally was for 2005′s Into the Blue. ”It’s about these characters, these best friends who are constantly in competition with the diving stuff. I had that relationship with him,” said Caan, who jumped at the chance as soon as he heard that Walker was on board. Their first scene together found the friends play-wrestling — oddly appropriate for two men who bonded over an interest in jujitsu.

Although many viewers were sounding the death knell for Hawaii Five-0 after the CBS show was moved to Friday nights, it seems that move is paying off. The Eye network has argued for a while now that it’s not only viewers in the 18-49 age group that should determine the success or failure of a show. Putting their money where their mouth is, they’ve kept alive such series as ”Blue Bloods,” and “The Good Wife,” which don’t score so high in the youth demo, but which have loyal viewerships.
After two seasons of declining ratings, and with two of the stars taking personal time off this season, Hawaii Five-0 fans have been understandably concerned about the relocation to Friday, since that night has the reputation for being the “death slot.” Many believed the show starring Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, and Scott Caan, was being written off and that this would be the final season. Personally, I thought the new time-slot might be a good strategy, since Five-0 would be paired with “Blue Bloods,” which is a numbers hit, but which scores lower in the industry-desired demographic. Although it’s too early to make a prediction for a fifth season, the show’s new berth combined with improved writing, and memorable guest stars is bringing in viewers. And most importantly, CBS seems quite pleased with the continued climb in ratings.

Hawaii Five-0 is pulling out the stops with guest stars this week in what is sure to be a ratings coup! The Grand Dame of television comedy, Carol Burnett, appears this week as McGarrett’s Aunt Deb. The lovely Aunt Deb raised Mary on the mainland at John’s request, after the murder-but-not-a-murder of Doris McGarrett.
If you have never experienced the side splitting comedy of The Carol Burnett Show, I highly recommend checking out clips on YouTube.
Below is an interview that Burnett did on the CBS daytime show, The Talk about her Hawaii Five-0 experience.
Watch carefully during Aunt Deb’s singing performance for Burnett’s signature ear tug. She’s said that it’s her way of sending a little hello to her now deceased grandmother and daughter.
Based on the short preview clip released by CBS, I already know that this is a character I want to see again and again.

This will probably not bode well for Steve if he has Captain Grover in one ear and Danny in the other! But Chi will add a distinct physical presence with a slight dash of charm to the show. Read CBS’ press release below.

CHI MCBRIDE ANNOUNCEMENT: NEW SERIES REGULAR
POSTED ON NOV 21, 2013 10:05AM
Chi McBride Upped to Series Regular on Hawaii Five-0
CBS announced today that Chi McBride has been upped to series regular on the Friday night series, HAWAII FIVE-0. His character, Captain Lou Grover, was first seen in the fourth season premiere this past September, and is based on a character of the same name from the original “Hawaii Five-0” series. Captain Grover, who recently moved his family from Chicago to Oahu, heads the SWAT unit on the Island.
“Well, I know this sounds corny but the only thing I ever wanted in my career was to be on CBS, the home of my idol Jackie Gleason,” said McBride. “I finally made it to the Tiffany network on “Golden Boy,” shooting scenes on the same stage where “The Honeymooners” was filmed. CBS graciously invited me to be a member of the cast of HAWAII FIVE-0, and it’s been wonderful. The cast, crew and production have been so welcoming to me, and so my love affair with CBS continues.”
“After his first guest spot, we knew we had something special here with Chi playing Captain Lou Grover,” says Peter Lenkov, Executive Producer. “He just fit seamlessly into the fabric of HAWAII FIVE-0 and viewers are enjoying the spirited, if sometimes antagonistic, interaction between him and McGarrett. We are so thrilled to welcome Chi into our Ohana.”
Now in its fourth season, HAWAII FIVE-0 is broadcast Fridays, (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. It is a production of CBS Television Studios. Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are the executive producers.

Hawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin joined Mixed Martial Arts champion Egan Inoue for a weekend double hitter at Inoue’s new Egan’s Training Center — two women’s and children’s self-defense seminars held on Sunday, November 17th. The Star-Advertiser’s Honolulu Pulse team and photographer Bruce Asato were on hand to cover the event, which raised a tidy $10,000-plus for the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

“Hawaii Five-0” star Alex O’Loughlin joined fitness trainer and former MMA champion Egan Inoue to present two self-defense seminars for women and children on Sunday, Nov. 17.
The sessions, held at the new 3,000-square-foot Egan’s Training Center at 2700 S. King St., also served as a fundraiser for Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. Participants paid $300 per person, with the proceeds to be donated to the hospital.
The 90-minute sessions focused on a form of “nonstriking self-defense” based on Inoue’s martial arts training. Participants received a certificate, T-shirt and autographed photograph of O’Loughlin, who trains with Inoue.
Last weekend’s seminars raised $10,500, according to a post on Inoue’s Facebook page.
