Emily Wickersham made her long awaited debut on CBS's hit series "NCIS" Tuesday as her Ellie Bishop character takes the first step in replacing popular Cote de Pablo's character on the military crime drama.

It seemed that fans, according to online responses, have already started to warm up to her. A TV Line poll after "NCIS" aired Tuesday night showed that 83.19 percent of fans loved or liked Wickersham.

Described as an "Oklahoma-bred, food-associating, married info-sponge with three older brothers and not-quite-'Kate-good' drawing skills," by TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich, Wickersham's character consulted NCIS on a murder on her first episode.

As the episode ended, Gibbs, played by the show's long-time lead Mark Harmon, invited her to work alongside the team on a regular basis.

Wickersham was originally expected to appear in three episodes but was given an opportunity to join the show full time based on her performance, Mitovich said.

"NCIS" producer Gary Glasberg told TV Line that Wickersham connected with the other cast members immediately and they had a positive response. He said the "emotional moments, fun moments, funny moments that were all there. Once we started to see it all come together, the enthusiasm just skyrocketed (and) everyone agreed that we needed to act on it."

Fans on Twitter seemed to respond positively to Wickersham as well.

Some of the show's fans still longed for de Pablo, tweeting after the episode their loyalty for her.
