Last season, CBS successfully launched another NCIS spin-off, NCIS: New Orleans. It became the season’s third most-watched series on network television. Will viewers continue to tune in this year? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
NCIS: New Orleans revolves around the local field office in New Orleans, investigating criminal cases that affect military personnel. Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) leads the team. The rest of the cast includes Lucas Black, Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich, C. C. H. Pounder, Daryl Mitchell, and Shalita Grant.

Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available.
