Hawaii Five-0′s Thanksgiving-themed “Hau’oli La Ho’omaika’i” saw the show pull its highest Season 4 viewership figures to date — 9.92 million, up from the previous week’s 9.90 million. Only CBS stablemate Blue Bloods pulled higher total viewer figures — 11.90 million, which was also a season high for that show. Five-0′s demo rating and share, at 1.5/5, was only 1/10th of a point off the show’s season high of 1.6/5.

CBS was pleased enough with the viewership figures for Five-0 and Blue Bloods to issue a press release, which said:

“At 9:00 PM, HAWAII FIVE-0 delivered a season best 9.92 million viewers. Among adults 18-49, it averaged a 1.5/05, just -0.1 behind its season-best adults 18-49 performance.”

Beloved television legend Carol Burnett brought her A game to the episode, making Aunt Deb McGarrett a truly memorable addition to the Five-0 Ohana. Did her presence help bring new eyes to Five-0, or bring old eyes back? Tell us what you think!

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Ha’uoli Lā Ho’omaika’i” with sneak peak clip!

November 21st, 2013 by

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.

CBS teases Five-0 guest stars and season premiere (Spoilers!)

Twice a year, the Television Critics Association (TCA) holds a press event giving entertainment industry journalists what the TCA website describes as “an unparalleled opportunity to gain access to the people who make television.” That access has dividends that pay off throughout the year in the form of material for stories and one-on-one contact with execs, producers and cast.

The TCA summer press tour, which is held in July, allows networks and production companies to introduce and promote their shows, often with interviews, videos, and teasers — if not outright spoilers — for the upcoming Fall season. CBS day at the 2013 summer press tour took place on Monday, July 29th and, in addition to detailed information on new and returning shows, featured a talk with CEO Les Moonves.

As reported by craveonline.com, one of the topics Moonves covered was the decision to move Hawaii Five-0 from its Monday night berth to its new 9:00pm Friday time-slot.  “We didn’t have a lot of space for new 10 o’clock dramas,” said Moonves. “We fell in love with ‘Hostages’ and said it’s going to be very powerful. ‘Hawaii Five-O’ skews a little older, so with ‘Blue Bloods’ doing well, Friday has become more of a total demo night. It became pretty evident that putting ‘Hawaii Five-O’ there would be a good move.”

A CBS press release issued to coincide with the TCA press tour offered background on the end of the show’s third season as well as spoilers and casting teases for Five-0′s fourth season, which will premiere on Friday, September 27th.

“HAWAII FIVE-0 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) SEASON FINALE: The Five-0 team said goodbye for now to Kono as she and Adam fled Hawaii and went into hiding to save his life. Also, McGarrett was left to choose whether or not to help Wo Fat escape maximum security when his enemies broke in to kill him. NEW SEASON: In the season premiere episode, McGarrett and Wo Fat make a narrow escape from maximum security, gunman storm Five-0 headquarters and Catherine is taken hostage. Now, in McGarrett’s quest to save Catherine, he must break the rules and go head-to-head with new SWAT Commander Captain Grover (Chi McBride). Meanwhile, Kono and Adam’s secret location in Hong Kong is compromised. Rumer Willis and Terry O’Quinn return, and Carol Burnett, Jorge Garcia, Henry Ian Cusick, Tim Daly and Rebecca De Mornay guest star during the series’ fourth season. ”

Chi McBride

As per the CBS press release and TVLine.com, Chi McBride will appear in the Season 4 premiere episode, “Aloha Kekahi I Kekahi,” which will air on Friday, September 27th. Seen most recently in CBS’s Golden Boy, McBride will be playing SWAT Captain Lou Grover, a potentially recurring character brought forward from the original series.

EW.com’s Sandra Gonzalez discussed McBride’s role with Peter Lenkov in early July.

“It’s always fun to dig back into Five-0 mythology and resurrect a character — and in this case, Chi McBride plays SWAT Captain Lou Grover,” says executive producer Peter Lenkov. “Recently transferred to Hawaii from Chicago, Grover isn’t easily sold on Five-0′s tactics, referring to the task force as: ‘McGarrett and his merry band of do-whatever-the-hell-they-want.’ What Five-0 does conflicts with Grover’s own style of law enforcement. And that creates good conflict, so prepare for some combustive tension between the two this season.”

 


Rumer Willis as Sabrina Lane

Rumer Willis

Last seen in Season 3′s “Ha’awe Make Loa” on the wrong side of a bank robber’s gun,  Rumer Willis will once again play bank teller and Max (Masi Oka) Bergman’s love interest Sabrina Lane.

Based on local production-spotter reports, it is possible that Willis will appear in the third episode of the season, titled “Ka ‘oia’i'o ma loko.”

 

 

 


Terry O'Quinn as Joe White

Terry O’Quinn

Probably most famous for his role as LOST’s John Locke, Terry O’Quinn has played now-retired SEAL Lt. Commander Joe White since Season 2′s premiere episode, “Ha’i'ole.” Originally introduced through a line of dialogue in Season 1′s “Ho’apono” as SEAL candidate Steve McGarrett’s training officer, “Uncle Joe” White served with Jack McGarrett and kept a watchful eye on his friend’s son throughout his SEAL training and service.

Though introduced as something of a knight in shining armor in McGarrett’s hour of need, O’Quinn’s Joe White proved to be painted in shades of gray, often hindering as much as helping with Steve’s quest to get to the bottom of his parents’ deaths and the part played by the elusive Shelburne.

Put out to pasture after joining Five-0 and a handful of SEALs in their “Ki’ilua” mission to rescue McGarrett from Wo Fat’s North Korean bunker, White has since retired to his ranch in Montana, where he was last seen in Season 3′s “Olelo Pa’a.”  While no details have been revealed thus far, White may play a part in Season 4′s continuing Doris McGarrett story arc.

 


Carol Burnett

Carol Burnett

A grande dame of American television, Carol Burnett has excelled as an actress, comedienne, singer and writer. She is best known for her long-running variety show, The Carol Burnett Show, which ran on CBS for eleven years and won her numerous Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.

As per TV Guide’s Mega Buzz column, “Recently announced guest star Carol Burnett will play McGarrett’s aunt, who comes to Oahu with a secret plan to reunite the entire clan for Thanksgiving.”  As Steve, sister Mary Ann (Taryn Manning) and mother Doris (Christine Lahti) don’t really seem to constitute a “clan,” it seems likely that Burnett’s character will dredge up additional “family” members to take part in her Thanksgiving extravaganza. Odds are good that Steve’s adopted family — Danny, Grace, Chin, Kono, Catherine, Kamekona — will find places around that table.

The Thanksgiving theme most likely means the episode will air in November.

 


Jorge Garcia goes back to the island

Jorge Garcia

Best known as LOST’s Hugo “Hurley” Reyes, Jorge Garcia joins Hawaii Five-0′s growing roster of LOST alumni.  Garcia flew into Honolulu on July 30th to appear in the third episode of Season 4, which is titled “Ka ‘oia’i'o ma loko.”

According to a June  14th article by Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez, Garcia “will play a brilliant conspiracy theorist and reportedly share scenes with former Lost co-star Kim.” Behind-the-scenes location photos have shown Garcia and the Five-0 production team working at the feet of at least two King Kamehameha statues: the larger one in front of the iconic Ali’iolani Hale, and a smaller one in Windward Oahu.

What kind of conspiracy theory leads Garcia’s character to the feet of King Kamehameha? Tune in on Friday, October 11th to find out!

 


Henry Ian Cusick appears in the season premiere

Henry Ian Cusick

LOST fans will recognize Henry Ian Cusick as that show’s button-pushing hatch-dweller Desmond Hume. Cusick has the honor of being Season 4′s first LOST alum by virtue of appearing in the season premiere, which is titled “Aloha Kekahi I Kekahi.”.

TV Line’s Matt Webb Mitovich talked with Peter Lenkov about Cusick’s role in a July 12th article and had this to say:

“Lost alum Henry Ian Cusick is heading back to Hawaii, with a plum role on Hawaii Five-0.

The dashing Scotsman will guest-star in the Season 4 premiere as Ernesto, a tough, fearless and ruthless member of a terrorist group called the National Liberation Movement. Provided he makes it out of the mayhem he makes alive, he possibly could reappear like a bad penny.

Asked to comment on Cusick’s character, show boss Peter Lenkov — who teased the Lost alum’s arrival with the photo below — said, “Well, he’s got the balls to take over the palace, Five-0′s HQ — so what more is there to say?”


Tim Daly plays Texas Ranger on Five-0

Tim Daly

Seen most recently on ABC’s Private Practice,  Tim Daly will play a potentially recurring Texas Ranger in Season 4′s second episode, which is titled “A’ale Ma’a Wau.” As described by TV Line’s Vlada Gelman, Daly’s character is “a Texas Ranger looking for his missing daughter in one installment,  with the potential to recur.”

TV Guide’s July 9th Mega Buzz column, written before Daly’s casting was announced, teased with some interesting comparisons:

“Have you seen Taken? Imagine Liam Neeson in a cowboy hat and snakeskin boots and you’ve got the tough customer who McGarrett and Danny will tumble with in an early episode, in which a trigger-happy Texan is trying to locate his kidnapped daughter. Bonus: The episode’s father-daughter theme will also feature Danny and Steve playing coach to little Grace on the baseball diamond. “
