Brian Dietzen shared some exciting news on Tuesday, and huge congratulations are in order! Taking to Twitter, the actor – who plays Dr Jimmy Palmer on NCIS – celebrated the record-breaking response to the crossover event which saw teams from the Washington DC, Hawaii and LA branches come together for a high-stakes investigation. 

After airing on Monday night, the crossover event has already surpassed season highs in audience numbers and it's even resulted in CBS' most-watched Monday since the NCAA men's basketball championship game, which aired in April 2022.

Retweeting an article which detailed the viewership figures, Brian wrote: "Thank you to everyone who watch the #NCISCrossover last night! It was a blast to film, and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!"

Who knows, with such a positive response, we could be looking at another crossover event sometime soon – especially with fans calling for another one!
