Despite shallow ratings last year, this show managed to sail to a season two renewal. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens, but they won’t tell the whole story here. As a news division program, 48 Hours: NCIS is cheaper to produce than the NCIS drama franchise, while also being something of an advertisement for it. Additionally, it extends the 48 Hours brand into the off-season. Keep that in mind, as the numbers roll in. I will update this page with breaking developments, so subscribe for free 48 Hours: NCIS cancellation or renewal alerts.
