ET caught up with a bevy of TV stars of the CBS family (CBS, the CW, Showtime) at CBS' TCA party Monday evening, including The Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik, who commented on her Emmy nomination.
Bialik, who plays "Amy Farrah Fowler" on the popular sitcom, was recently granted her second-consecutive Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
"I'm shocked," the 37-year-old actress said of the nod, then discussing her Emmys gown. "My stylist, Alison Kahn, has started thinking about my dress. I let her do all the thinking. I will just wear it and show up and not fall over."
Although she is honored to receive the acknowledgement from the Academy, pitted against Glee's Jane Lynch, 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski, and Modern Family duo Sophia Vergara and Julie Bowen, Bialik doesn't believe that she stands a chance to win the award, which was bestowed upon Bowen last year.
"I'm so certain I'm not winning I'm not even writing a speech," she admitted.
Among the many stars in the CBS family with whom ET chatted on the press line were NCIS stars Rocky Carroll, Pauley Perrette, and Michael Weatherly, who teased yet another thrilling season of the police procedural series to commence with an impactful premiere.
"This year we have a season premiere that is going to be bigger than any season premiere we've ever had," previewed Weatherly ("Tony DiNozzo"). "Even the second episode is bananas-big.
"'NCIS has always been about change—change is the only constant—and I can promise you, even if...you're a casual viewer of 'NCIS,' this is the one season you don't want to miss the premiere of."
