'NCIS': Watch Ellie Bishop (a.k.a. new series regular Emily Wickersham) make her big debut

Let's get this straight: new "NCIS" series regular Emily Wickersham is not actually a replacement Ziva -- she's just the show's newest female regular following the departure of Cote de Pablo.

We'll finally be able to see how she fits in with the "NCIS" team when NSA Analyst Ellie Bishop makes her first appearance on the show in tonight's (Nov. 19) episode, "Gut Check." As we can see in the clip of her introduction, she's definitely as smart as Ziva, but the characters' vibes are completely different. Ellie is more of the quirky savant type, and that is most definitely not what Ziva's like.

Check out Ellie's unconventional research strategies as she meets Tony ( Michael Weatherly) and Gibbs ( Mark Harmon) for the first time.
