NCIS: Los Angeles: Season Five Ratings

ncis los angeles ratingsThis 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.

    This show should not be cancelled for its one of my favorite shows to watch. If you want to cancelled shows how about elementary, or comedy for the most part the comedy shows lack any story line on your network or just plain not fun to watch.

      This show and NCIS are the best shows on television and I do not think NCIS New Orleans will be as good as NCIS Los Angles. Please do not cancel this show the actors are all really great together.

    I have to say that ncis la is not as good as the original. It lacks something but I can’t put my finger on it. Perhaps it needs a reshuffle of actors, perhaps the story themes are implausible.

    I look forward to NCIS:Los Angelos every week. I’d be very disappointed if it was cancelled. Hope it is renewed!

    lose the reality shows. The reason I watch TV is for the fictional characters. I like all three of the NCIS shows and hope that you get a grip and play them back to back. I could care less what the real lives of whomever are doing and the badly talented people who get up and make fools of themselves in front of idiotic judges. I have never liked any of the survivor shows and the naked one is just insane.

    • Cynthia C Smith says

      Tuesday is the best night I look forward to watching both NCIS ans NCIS LA after a long day at work it is nice to relax with these two shows, because the cast of both are fabulous together. Keep them on

    Why do you always cancel good shows and leave all the reality shows on that are terrible,
    I love NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles please do not take them off the air they are both really good and I love all the actors. They just have a great connection.
    Please do not cancel

  6. Jerry says

    Please, Please……I’m sick to death of the stupid PUPPY-LOVE between Kensi & the IDIOT DEEKS………….Please kill off DEEKS and get someone else. Or get rid of both..

  7. Peter says

    Please cancel this impossibly moronic excuse for entertainment! Or at least shoot Deeks. Do you want your country protected by a dim witted, surfer boy wannabe from the 70’s? And his girlfriend! But not in some cheap, stupid lover’s tryst- maybe have Kensi shoot Deeks or, maybe the super-macho Romanian white guy who only follows his own objectives- as though you could really get away with hisbcrap in a real government black ops operation! The story line has always been bad, limping into our viewing on the heels of a great show NCIS! Maybe make Renee Felicity Smith a working field agent. She’s cute, intelligent and tough. Everything Kensi is not! And, shoot Deeks!

    • Hunter says

      I agree shoot Deeks and maybe Kensi while your at it hell have them both go down in a blaze of glory saving there idiot team mates who can shoot who got them selves stuck in a sub full of explosives better yet have them all get killed by the blast. On a more serious not this show is doomed the who reason for New Orlines is so they can cancel this and have a way better show take its place the reason the New show will do will it is sticking closer to the original NCIS not going playing spy…

    I WAS never really impressed with this show but at first I thought the actors were doable. Heady in my book makes the show. LL and his partner are good and the geek squad are also doable. The big brunette and the blond are in my opinion the worse characters ever. I really do not like either of them and have just given up on the show altogether. Put it out of its misery, the acting (?) gets worse with each episode. Please don’t put us through anymore of this show. I am just done watching it.

  9. Carmen says

    I love NCIS Los Angeles, it keep my week balanced, I guest kensi is pregnant and that is the reason why they sent her to the middle east, ja ja …….I love the flirting between those two… don’t take away this great show…please

  10. Loli Davinish says

    I want Kensi & Deeks to get together. Don’t follow the NCIS
    Tony & Ziva extended flirting only to be let down with no happy ending.
    Those two can pull it off.
    I hope the show continues along with their romantic
    In my opinion, without Deeks, the show would lose it’s balance.
    I Love the Deeks / Kensi relationship. IT WORKS!

  11. Hollie Handsley says

    I absolutely love Ncis:Los Angeles however I’m behind episodes abit as I live in the UK personally I think it’s one of the best shows going with the best actors they are way better than the ones in Ncis please get kensi and deeks back together I was tearing up when I watched kensi going on her new case please do not take it off air!

  12. Anonymous says

    I love ncis and ncis la!! and I will not continue to watch ncis la any more if they keep kensi and deeks apart! they can certainly be a couple and continue what they do!

  13. Loli Denna says

    NCIS has become stale while NCIS LA is still lively & Fresh; However, if they don’t reunite Deeks & Kensi, I, for one, will probably stop watching the show….. AND WORSE …. If they try and make Nell a field Agent, I will Never watch another Episode. I like Nell, but she needs to stay exactly where she belongs, which is in the office.

  14. Cindy Davis says

    I look forward every Tuesday evening for my NCIS & NCIS LA lineup. I hope ratings continue in a steady incline. I would miss it very much. Thanks,

    Cindy Davis
