Season 15 Ratings
The 15th season of NCIS averaged a 1.41 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 13.05 million viewers. Compared to season 14, that’s down by 18% and down by 11%, respectively. Find out how NCIS stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Although it premiered with lower numbers than last season, it is unlikely that the show will slide from the Tiffany Network’s most-watched scripted series to some level that warrants cancellation. What’s more likely is that (eventually) the creative team will decide it is time to end the series, or parties will be unable to come to terms on money. While ratings may not directly influence the writers and/or actors decision to leave, the casts and crews of most successful series prefer to go out on top. For that reason, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any NCIS cancellation or renewal news.
