Love the tough guys on Navy N.C.I.S.? Well, we hate to shatter your image, but they're not so tough. "Mark (Harmon) and I, sometimes we start to giggle, when we're supposed to look each other in the eye and be kind of tough," costar Michael Weatherly tells us. "It's hard for the editors to find bits with us not laughing with tears in our eyes." Hmm. But there is one thing about which Harmon – PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive in 1986 – is tough: punctuality. "You have to be on time," Weatherly says. "It's a Mark Harmon show, and he's a very punctual guy. He really feels it's out of respect for the process and all the people who work hard every day, that the actors should really endeavor to be on time. It's just the Mark Harmon way." Don't be late for the show's season finale on Tuesday – you've been warned.

Montel Williams has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis but told reporters Monday he won't quit his talk show. "This disease is not going to stop me," said Williams, who was accompanied by his wife, Grace, at a New York news conference. "We don't know how long I've had it for, but I've been misdiagnosed for 10 years." Williams, 43, is considering several recently approved drugs and is starting a fund drive to find a cure for the crippling disease. Today Williams will begin taping the ninth season of his nationally syndicated daytime talk show "The Montel Williams Show."
