NCIS: Los Angeles follows the the high-stakes NCIS division that’s charged with apprehending elusive criminals that pose a threat to the nation’s security. By assuming false identities and utilizing advanced technology, the highly trained agents go deep undercover, putting their lives on the line to bring down their targets. This drama stars Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Barrett Foa, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Renée Felice Smith, and Linda Hunt.
While the start times for season eight episodes have been messed up because of NFL game over-runs, it looks like NCIS: Los Angeles may be benefitting. Season eight is averaging a 1.36 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.30 million viewers. Compared to season seven, that’s up by 3% in the demo and up by 19% in total viewers. Most network shows are down, year-to-year.
NCIS: Los Angeles currently ranks as CBS’ eighth highest-rated scripted series (out of 26 shows). It’s no surprise that the network has renewed it. CBS has also renewed NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans for the 2017-18 season.
