Some new shows are struggling but the same can’t be said for CBS’ new Tuesday night shows.
NCIS: Los Angeles is a spin-off of the network’s popular NCIS series and stars Chris O’Donnell, LL COOL J, Linda Hunt, Peter Cambor, Adam Jamal Craig, and Daniela Ruah.
The Good Wife revolves around the wife of a disgraced politician who’s forced to re-enter the workforce. It stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Josh Charles, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, Makenzie Vega, and Graham Phillips.
The biggest winner of the Fall season for CBS is NCIS: LA, ranking second among new and returning primetime shows. It’s been averaging a whopping 17.47 million viewers and a 4.1/11 among adults 18-49.
The Good Wife isn’t far behind and is the second most-popular new series of the season. It’s averaged 13.7 million viewers and a 3.0/8 rating/share in the demo.
Both dramas have been rewarded with orders for nine additional episodes. That will bring each to a total of 22 installments for 2009-10.
What do you think? Are these shows worth watching or overrated in your opinion? Is NCIS: LA better than Good Wife as the ratings might suggest?
