This season, NCIS: Los Angeles will pass the 100 episode mark. While overall viewership is still very healthy, the demo ratings have been coming down over that last couple seasons. Will the show survive to see 200 episodes or could it be cancelled before then? We shall see.
NCIS: Los Angeles follows the cases of an elite division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) that specializes in undercover assignments. This season’s castmembers include Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Linda Hunt, Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith, and Miguel Ferrer.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
